    So...I unpacked the kit over the weekend and figured it out. The eBay lister had it all wrong. The rack tom is 9x12 and the floor tom is 11x14. For the floor tom, it was the standard 11x14 rack...
  2. Need help trying to figure out where this VSX kit came from and what year...

    So I recently picked up a VSX 3-piece in Gun Metal Sparkle off of eBay for an excellent price. I wanted something "decent" that I could gig with, and the wrapped finish looks great and is durable. ...

    I must say that while I prefer the open sound of triple flanged hoops, I much prefer the tuning stability of die cast...which for regularly gigging drummers, saves a TON of time tweaking and tuning. ...
  4. I gotta say, I'm not impressed with the new Masters offering! :(

    No more die-cast hoops! Say whaaat?!?! Between taking away the fully lacquered bass drum hoops and now die cast rims, it seems like the Masters series is getting cheaper with every new incarnation....
  5. Weight specs on current Championship and CarbonCore snares?

    I'm looking at getting a new marching snare sometime in the next 6 months, and am starting to evaluate my options. I played Championship FFXs in high school and loved them. My only complaint was...

    Thanks for the clarification Al! It's a small issue to me that I can easily rectify...I'll still never use anything but Pearl!

    Anyone know if this was changed from the earlier incarnations of the MCX series? A few years ago, I thought I saw MCXs in my local Sam Ash with the stainless rods. I think that's why I kind of...

    Agreed. I'm kind of disappointed they don't include them on the MCX/BCX lines when they already use the brass swivel nuts. It seems like a cut corner that shouldn't have been cut, IMO.
  9. Do BCX drums come with stainless tension rods?

    I finally bought the first piece of what I am hoping will eventually be a full BCX Lava Bubinga kit. I got the 14x6.5 snare. After one practice this weekend, I'm loving it! I noticed, however,...

    At least by .5cm. Enough to affect the tuning! I contacted the drum shop I bought it from on eBay and started a return request. I sold my other snare to buy this one, so I'm a little anxious to...
  11. It's a new drum...so I'm perplexed!

    It's a new drum...so I'm perplexed!
  12. Free Floater Shell Out of Round! Anyone else have this issue?

    I just picked up a 6.5x14 maple/mahoghany free floater. I took the heads off this evening and put it back together from scratch, as I wanted to center the logo between the lugs. While I had the...

    I love it, another Pearl/Sabian guy! That's a nice collection of bronze you have there! Wine Red is my favorite Pearl color, by far. I hope to one day own a birch Masterworks in satin Wine Red...

    ECX Availability? Pearl guys? ;)

    Can Export Custom drums still be ordered? I'm looking for one tom to complete my microkit and have been searching everywhere for new old stock and even used. No luck!

    I use my VBX (in sig.) as my main and only full size kit. That means rehearsals, gigging, and recording. I have cases for everything and am super anal retentive about my gear, so always put...
  17. Putting together and ECX Export Custom microkit! Need one more drum!

    So I came across some ECX toms on eBay and got the great idea of putting together a microkit. I got a 16x16 and 8x10 in Lava Red for around $200. Not bad for 100% maple shells! I need one more tom...

    Availability of a VBX 14x16 Mounted Tom?

    I've been looking for one of these as "new old stock" for at least 8 months. I have the original VBX drums with the "V" badges. Does Pearl have any of these laying around in the warehouse, or is it...

    Availability of wings for DR-501?

    I'm hoping someone from Pearl can help me out here. I bought my DR-501 last year before the availability of the new "compact" ICON w/ wings. I was originally planning on buying a DR-501E and...

    SM-414B - How many to a pack?

    I'm rehabbing an early 90s Export (mahogany) kit, and am replacing the lug screws since the old ones are all corroded. I found plenty of sources for them online, but none of them list how many are...

    It has to be 89-93...however, I'm leaning towards 90-93. Anyone know how to tell if it has the "select wood w/ acoustic sealer" instead of the mahogany w inner birch that the 90-93 drums had? Can...
