The octobans can't tune as high as my concert toms. I want 4 drums to all play higher than an 8x6.5 rack tom... that's hard to achieve.
Yeah, I love that finish, and the heads were stunning. The sparkle burst is not too different, google it. I still haven't seen it with my eyes though.
Couldn't you tune up the octos? Mine go pretty high if i want...
Hey man, is this finish the same as the RSB? Looks great anyway, wish you still had these drums! http://flacche.com/images/sampledata...tercloseup.jpg
Thanks! Glad to be here. Thanks for accepting my friend request, you look like you've been around the block a few times, have good taste, and good drumming advice. Cheers!
I have been playing Pearl for a long time, starting with an Export that is still in the garage. I beat that thing up mercilessly and it is still rocking. This MCX is blowing me away now. I want to throw some Aquarian Texture Coated single-ply's on the toms and a 20" Superkick I on the bass and go to town. I am amazed at the sound even with clear ambassadors on the tops, a bit too high pitched for my taste, I like warm coated heads, but the shells rock! Stoked!
New video coming soon... Erotomania from Dream Theater. Plus, I am going to make a few videos for the Pearl Project 108... we'll see how that goes?
I'm looking for Pearl TB-50 and TB-65 Classic Tube Lugs... if anyone has any they want to sell, e-mail me HERE
Hey Matt, quick question about the Tama cymbal mates. Do they tighten on the threads like the Vater slick nuts? The pearl wing locs are nice but at $12 a piece, I'll stick with my wing nuts. I need 11 of them. I don't move the cymbals, i just like the look. MF has the tama's for $5 a piece. I use a Vater on my x hats, but it's too bulky for all my cymbals.
My e mail address had to be changed because hackers got in the old one and locked me out. All of the bad stuff in the old e mail is contained; but I can't get in and it can't hurt my computer.
Absolutely! I am also making a time-lapse video of the assembly of the kit... from when it comes off the UPS truck!
Any chance when you get your new kit set up the way you want it could you shoot a video of a rig run down ? Would love to see how your new set up and kit will look. Maybe even borrow a few of your set up ideas
