    Now that you own both kits you can do a review on both of them and tell us what you think.
    I have stated many times here that the MHX's are the best sounding drums Pearl has ever made.

      I wonder if it's the thin shell, the mahogany, or both?

        I think it's both. Matt, check your snare thread. I left you a comment about that snare i got from you.

            Not sure. I all I know is, that these were used in a Nashville studio for some session work, then they sold them. Since I got these, I have seen a few sets of reference pures ob eBay go for $1500-1800 range. But none had a 18" floor tom. Most were 4 piece shell packs.

              Big King,

              Those drums have been on eBay for quite a while. I'm glad you were able to find them a home at a great price!

                    The MHX's sound amazing, but there is something about the reference pures... They really sound great in the studio. I told my friend who has the studio where they are set up that I was thinking of flipping the reference pures for something else, and he said "NOOO!!!! NEVER SELL THOSE!!!! THEY SOUND TOO GOOD TO SELL" He says the ref pures record better than my MHX's.

                      One day I might be lucky enough to have a set of MHX's. I had the opportunity to buy a five piece she'll pack many years ago (22,10,12,14,16, no snare) but passed on it as I thought getting a matching kick and an 18" floor tom would be too hard. Still regret that decision!

                        I've seen some shell packs on ebay and the internet for not that much. $1200-$1500 or so. They really do sound fantastic.

                          Much less prominent here in the UK than North America unfortunately, but maybe one day when I have more space I'll own a set. Beautiful sounding drums - I hold them right up there with my CZX as my favourite line Pearl produced
