    You must be ordering a special color? I'm going for piano black. I've had a number of kits in different colors and decided to go back to black (that was my first real kit back in 1978 - a gloss black Slingerland). The color is timeless and works with alot of things, even if it is a tad bit boring - but this is a long term investment for me. Kevin Packard and I laughed about all those people who may have bought some wild MTV-type colored drums (or covered in fur and what-not) and speculated if they'd still be playing those drums in a years' time

          The Reference Pure 20" kick drum will come with 8 lugs on the batter side, and 8 lugs on the resonant side. Here are two different pics of the RFP-904 shell pack (with 20" kick).

          I believe a Masterworks 20" kick drum would typically come with 16 total lugs, unless ordered differently. My Masterworks 20" gong drum came with 8 lugs on the batter side.

            16 lugs is plenty and personally i think 16 inch is a good size so don't feel you missed out on the 14" :-)

              Agree - I'm of the belief that adding 2 more lugs per side was more of a marketing tool than having anything major to do with sound or intonation of a drum. Even with snare drums (Corps style marching snares being an exception - they require a fair bit more tension) I've never felt that 8 tuning points per side was a detriment to the drum, yet "professional drums" all seem to have 10 lugs.

                As low-end budget drums come with ever fewer lugs to cut costs at every possible corner, professional drums add ever more lugs to distinguish themselves from the no-name crap.

                  Drummers are an awfully gullible bunch. Tell them twenty shiny bits is better than sixteen and they'll eat it up.

                      Ha!
                      I can't remember how much mine were but **** expensive (the first time I bought them from here in Aus). And, let me tell you, they were not "precision". They had multiple defects.

                        So how many days did your 20x14 bass drum take to arrive at your place? I'm waiting on one now.
