    Matt,

    I don't think you know how to smile in real life. Hence, even friendly emojis bother you.

    BTW, I always thought that the Pearl kit you did several years ago with the black fade to gold...

    I just think someone who whines about others who don't agree with his preferences might have some "little guy" issues too. I don't care if wants to spend his money on other brands...

    Steady,

    I agree. It's a matter of one's personal taste. I just think the Tama lugs look cheap. I wouldn't want them on an expensive drum.

    I think the Pearl hardware is classier and...

    Dale,

    Thanks.

    It seems there is someone who resents the Pearl brand, but can't resist the Pearl forum where he can promote himself. Despite Pearl having gone out of their way to give him...

    I love the look of the maple veneer, but the Tama hardware looks like the entry level hardware that Pearl uses on their cheapest snare drums. I just don't care for it.

    I agree. I don't care for the new finishes.

    Time has proven that fancy finishes come and go and don't have enduring appeal. They should have added some new sparkles or matte wood grain...

    Hi,

    I've done both 13x5 and 13x6.5 bell bronze snare drums using the Oriollo shells in 3mm thickness (heavy enough). Oriollo includes the sharp 45 degree edges on top and bottom but it costs...

    I've done about a dozen bell bronze snare drums with the raw Oriollo shells and there hasn't been any issue with tarnishing during shipping. It's also very easy to spray several coats of brass...

    Matt,

    The BMI charts are controversial anyway. I'm 5'9" and weigh 170 lbs and I'm technically "overweight." I'm supposed to weigh 160lbs. I would need a few weeks of starving on "Naked And...

    Nice purchase. It's very hard to find those shiny brass shells in perfect condition (or to even find a third party shell in the shiny brass finish to build your own).
