                Re: Asteroid

                After looking closely at your pics, I think you have a Sequioa Red kit there also. It was the only red color that featured the wood grain visibly. The old Cherry red was an opaque color, and I believe wine red was darker, more burgundy-ish. Nice kit! I do love that color red.

                      No Trush - your finish doesn't count! It is not BLX or MLX...

                      (But of course it's one of the most exiting finishes from Pearl)

                        Oliver, is that a 10, 12, 13, 14, 16 set-up with 22 inch kick? Looks great! I've only got the 13, 16, and 22 with a 10 inch MMX to round out the kit as a 5 piece. (Which I will redundantly post an old photo. New pics will happen soon.)
                        I'd love to have a 10,12,13 rack tom configuration with 16 and 18 inch floor toms even though it would be rare that I would play out on that many pieces. carring 5 pieces is all I have room for right now and all I care to set up and tear down.

                          Ron - no, it's a 8-10-12-14-16FT-22BD combo - I got it from ebay about a year ago and I love this kit (follow the MLX-link in my sig).

                          I'd love to find a MLX 18FT in Liquid Amber - there have been some MLXs around in #114 but it seems to be quite seldom that someone sells a single 18FT...

                          I have a video from TV where Dennis Chambers is playing a 10-12-13-14-16-18-22 MLX in #114 (together with the Brecker Brothers and Mike Stern) and if I don't stop viewing it again and again it will be worn out in some weeks... so inspiring to see him playin my (our) kit...

                            I already viewed the link. Loved the rest of the pics. What kind of heads are you using on the tom batters? I use clear G2's on top and clear G1's on the bottom. I'm considering EC2's for the batters or coated heads. I feel like the laquered interior adds a lot of top end to these shells. Do you agree?

                              these are RMV Original (coated single-ply) - compareable to (coated) G1s or Ambassadors. Have you listened to the clip with the toms? They sound so delicious...

                              I personally don't like all the 2-ply-heads on toms - sound to muffled for me, and I think with single-ply-heads you can really hear what quality (or not) your drums have - but that again is only me...

                              The laquer sure adds some top-end (more on the BLX, but that again might also be the birch) - they are projecting quite good in a live situation. Some drum-techs back in the early 90s said this laquer has to be sanded out of the drums to sound good - well, they sound good as they are and only a fool would do this to almost vintage drums (classics they are anyway).
