    These "Dunnett" titanium shells are made by All Star Drum company (even though they have a Dunnett badge and some Dunnett hardware on them).

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    I'm proud to play Pearl drums and build these for my personal collection.

    Even if I eventually sold them, I would remove all of the high end Pearl hardware and put...

    It sounds fine. However, there isn't much to the sound of a snare drum this small.

    It really serves a specific purpose and is more of a novelty.

    You could also drill through the holes in the Pearl grommets to make the holes slightly larger.

    Thanks.

    It actually wasn't too hard to find the different places where the snare wires could go.

    However, making the custom 8" snare wires with the "Pearl" end plates was hard to do.

    That's the drawback of spending a lot of money on a high end kit with a trendy custom finish. They rarely hold resale value.

    There's good reason that most companies keep putting out "natural"...

    There are so many other social media options now that the PDF is no longer a destination platform like it used to be.

    However, you have to give Pearl credit for having foresight and...

    From what I've seen of the Midnight Sparkle finish, it is not the best choice. Because of the dark color, it is not as "sparkly" as some of the other Pearl finished in the Masters line.

    I don't think Pearl has ever made a 14" FF snare that only has 8-lugs.

    He might have been referring to a 13" marching snare drum.

    It's all personal preference, but any of those heads will sound a little different and you might like them better.

    The Pearl stock heads really don't sound that bad for general use.

    Beautiful kit.

    Adding the halo flakes to the different sparkle finishes is a great option!
