  5. Music City Custom Masters Maple Reserve Review & Photos

    I was a long-time Reference player, then a six-year Reference Pure player. (You can see my comparison review of those two series as a 2011 sticky post in the Reference Pure forum.) This week, I...

    The wait is over! The drums arrived at Fork's Drum Closet this morning! That's a turn-around of about 5 1/2 calendar days from the moment I ordered them. Or, 3 1/2 business days! I had expected...

    I was just joking, everyone. Before this goes much farther . . . My wife and I are doing Valentine's Day the Saturday before, anyway. She will be in jail on Valentine's Day. (She does ministry to...

    Just received my ETA. Granted that it's only an estimate . . . and further granted that the distance from the factory to the shop is about a 10 minute drive . . . but, wow! (You don't think my wife...

    I'm not sure how fast I can play. Just when I'm getting up near what I think my max would be, the sole of my shoe starts melting from the heat and the friction and gets sticky. Then, the beater...

    The wait begins . . .

    Today, I placed an order for my first non-Reference, non-Reference Pure kit since before Reference drums hit the market! It's a MCC Masters Maple Reserve in black diamond finish. Just a 3-pc. shell...

    I played an EARLY '70's Speed King. Loved the pedal. Fast. Perfect feel and control. Nothing beats a direct drive pedal. And the squeak was kept at bay with a bottle of trombone slide oil I kept...

    Unless you're playing very elementary stuff, there's no such thing as overthinking a setup. (And if that's all you're doing, why bother? They've got drum machines and samples for that!) ...

    Bostic, you're hitting on a couple of the issues I see here.

    First, I like the idea of removing the mount. Although I like the function of Optimounts, I don't like how they bind up the rods...

    I'm curious about what comes out at NAMM, but I can't imagine that anything introduced at this year's show will get my dollars. We will see.

    My major investment for 2018 is because I decided to...

    Best way to suspend a tom over a 24" drum?

    Rookie question, I know. I've been playing for decades, and I've seen all kinds of setups, but I've never actually owned/played a kit with a 24" kick. Now, I'm about to buy one and I'm wondering...

    Why so dead in here? Maybe it's because Reference Pure owners spend their time playing the drums -- and less time pounding computer keys. It's a side effect of having the best drums on the planet. ...

    I just came back to this thread for the first time in years. I'm honored and surprised they made it "sticky."

    It's been nearly 4 years since I made that first review post. And today, I'm still...

    It looks more like "black cherry". It is a stock finish. Beauty.

    The plies are thinner with Reference Pure.

    According to the Pearl website, the Reference series drums use both 1.6mm and .9mm plies in their shells. Reference Pure drums use only .9mm plies. ...

    I mentioned my visual impression of the lugs. The visual contrast is especially stark since I have the skinny Ludwig tube lugs just a few inches away.

    I would like it, too, but it will never happen. With the current system, they get two sales surges instead of one.
