I have a 3 piece Decade on order, and I want to order an 18x16 floor tom to go with it. I understand it's 4-6 months to get one.. what's the deal Pearl?

I understand it's 4-6 months to get one.. what's the deal Pearl?It's has to be made just like the 14x10 tom and 18x14 bass drum offered in catalog but not stock option in configured shell packs .. 8x7,10x7,12x8,13x9, 14x14, 16x16, 20x16, 22x18 and 24x14 are all offered in various shell packs

You order an 18x16 which isn't part of pre configured shell packs, Pearl makes it, then it gets boxed and boarded on a ship that doesn't leave port until it's full .. hence the 4-6 month wait

What's not to understand?

I'm assuming you ordered the DMP943XP/C shell pack .. what finish did you choose? :)

Satin white pearl. I was thinking of solid yellow, but again, it's a 4-6 month wait. Satin white was in stock :)

I guess I just expected there would be some of these extra drums in stock. I may try to see if I can get it in the US

While the numbers are low, I do show (1) DMP1816F/C229 (white satin Pearl) in-stock. But by the time your dealer tries and orders it could be gone, then it would be a special order 4-6 months delivery time.

Al,

Kudos to the shipping change at Pearl.

My last couple of Masterworks orders and special orders have taken only 4 months. A Masterworks snare I ordered on November 15th already showed up last week. :) :)

We air ship all Masterworks now so it takes away from the extended wait time.

Yes, I remember when I ordered a MW kit early last year that it arrived in only 4 months (after Tom had told me that they were trying a different means of shipping from overseas).

I also special ordered some Elite percussion stuff last summer that arrived in about 3 months. :)
