  • 2009 Pearl Vision VMX ordered

    I posted on another thread that I ordered a 6 piece Mapex Saturn kit, but my music store told me that it was going to be 7-8 1/2 months for them to arrive, so I went back to the store and changed the order. I have now ordered my Visions, with a 70 day delivery, still long, but not as bad.

    On order as listed

    7x8 tt
    10x8 tt
    12x9 tt
    14x14 ft
    16x16 ft
    22x18 bd
    5.5x14 maple snare

    In Terracotta # 266

    I have ordered Superhoop II for all toms, and Optimounts for the 8, 10, and 12 inch toms. I have also have a complete 900 series hardware pack on order.

    I knew it was going to be hard with the wait, but now that they are coming, I'm going out of my mind..... 00** 00**

    Pictures will most definately be posted as soon as i get those home.

    Dude that's gonna be sick. That's weird (the wait time). Your tom selection I must say is excellent. When I ordered mine it only took about a week, hmmmmmm. Maybe it's the specific sizes you have chosen to order.

    But I really wanna see how that terrcotta finish looks . I was debating on that finish or the finish I ended up getting (glacier white)

        They are amazing bro. The shells are simply amazing man, I'm so glad I went with maple rather than birch. The warmth and tone you get from the shells is awesome.

        Definitaly change the heads, I put g2 coated after playing with the stock heads after a bout a week, AMAZING difference.

        Just hold on man they'll be here before you know it!!!

          Congrats, man!! Terracotta is a great color, I know you'll be pleasantly pleased! That is some serious order times though, it has to be your location or something. Anyway, good deal, can't wait to see them!

            Cool! Definitely be sure to post pics, now that I think about it I haven't really seen a terracotta kit outside Pearl's generic pics. I always have liked that finish though...

              So true man... that's why I'm pretty excited to see the finish as well.

              Pearls pictures of the finishes look fake :P

                  Awesome can't wait to see the Terracotta! But 70 days? As far as I know Pearl should have that kit in stock. Those sizes come in a pre-pack configuration except for the 8" tom. Is it because you are in Canada?

                  Also I know it's possible to mount the 8" tom on the Optimount but word on the street is that you have to bend it somehow to fit the 4 lugs rather than the 5 lugs found on the Masters kits. Let us know how that goes.

                  I played a VMX not too long ago. The shells on it are just as nice as the Masters kits, you won't be disaoppointed.

                    Awesome! Dude! You will be amazed for the sound you get from VMX and the money you paid.But 70 days?? That's a bit long since it's a mass produced kit.
                    I got my packs about 2 weeks. O well, worth the wait, man. worth the wait
                    And the color. I'd like to see that as well since I've never seen it before.

                      Thankx all for the input.

                      I did not know about the fitting issues on the 8 inch tom with the omnimounts, this is the first I've heard of it. I haven't seen any other Vision kits with the Terracotta finish on the forum, or any where else for that matter. As soon as I can, I get pictures up.

                      Cheers

                            There is.

                            Optimounts were designed for Pearl's hi-end kits (Session, Masters, & Reference), whose 8" toms feature 5 lugs as opposed to 4 (on Visions, Exports, & Forums).

                            To get them to fit on a 4-lug tom, you need to bend the mount's arms so that they can reach across the gap between the lugs.

                              Not trying to be a d!ck, but why'd you swap a Saturn for a Visions? It's like changing a BMW for a Toyota.
