    If you go Pearl's home page, the first picture/ad is for the Masterworks Sonic-Select Shell Recipes. The badge clearly states "Hand Made In Japan" in red print on the bottom right. I don't think...

    I thought they were made in Taiwan but on the Masterworks badge it says "Hand Made in Japan." So the shells are made in Taiwan and finished in Taiwan if it's MMR but shipped to Japan and finished in...

    I think it's probably too early for many to have seen them outside of NAMM which, of course, is an acronym for Not Available Maybe May!

    Sorry, but you did miss the point. I realize those are list prices and I would never, ever pay anything close to list price. If you have a good relationship with a dealer or if you hunt around...

    That is a very, very, very big "if" when you're talking about GC. For every employee who knows their stuff, there are 25 others roaming the sales floor who don't have a clue.

    I used DDrum gear for years back when DDrum was owned by Clavia from Sweden, not after the DDrum name and technology was sold to Armadillo. It was a far, far superior product. I prefer real drum...

    Alesis modules are good...can't say the same about the pads.

    I absolutely hate everything V-Drum, but if I was in an apartment, that's probably what I'd go with. At the very least, I'd go with...
