  • Wanted: Pearl MLX shell hardware parts. Purchased in 1990.

    Looking for shell hardware for Pearl MLX kit. My one piece lugs are breaking off where screw threads. 12" tom and 16" floor tom so far. Hope no more break. Common on older kits I am finding. First Pro kit so a little attached and would like to keep playable. Possible to find parts or parts kit? Worth a shot.

    Better than old stuff, from what I understand, these guys do new:

      I've heard this is a common problem with those lugs. Have you considered simply replacing the long lugs with short ones?

        How big is your kit (pieces and sizes)?

              Kit includes 22x16 kick, 16x16 Floor tom, 10x 10 tom, 12x10 tom, 14x6.5 brass free float snare. Originally the kit came with two kick drums, a 18x16 floor tom, and a 13x11 tom also. They were sold as a kit many years ago as I did not use as often.
              Regret that.

                I did. Would like to find orig. one piece if possible but am considering that option. Then I would have to do all. I only have two per drum that have failed and only on 12" tom and 16" floor tom. Cross my fingers no more.
