    I never got a clear answer from Pearl as to how their black coating is applied. This is what I know for sure... it is NOT powder-coating. It is not plain paint. It is applied as a liquid, and if...

    That might work well. One of the refinishing places near me offers plain painting, in addition to powder-coating. If they rough up the chrome well, or media-blast it off, the paint should stick...

    Looks good Andy, how do you like it? Depending on what heads you buy, you might spend more on them than on the kit... HA! Great deal!

    I used to have the first generation Metalworks snares... both 6.5x14 and 5.5x14... they were both great. I only have so much room... so they found new homes.

    Just use straight Acetone... and don't use a paper towel... you'll scratch the black Mylar. Just an old towel or sock you don't mind throwing out. Then you can orient the heads anyway you like.

    They don't necessarily sound "better" to everyone, just different. A snare with a thin metal shell can tend to have much more than pleasant resonance... it can have an odd, twangy sound that needs...

    That's way nicer than mine... but I'm happy with how mine looks and drives. I still would like big brakes like I used to have on my 07 Vette.
