    I agree in the fullest. Like I said the only difference is a little glue and a couple millimeters. Nothing to fret over.

    oh hey look at that! My bad. I have been very busy in my responses. Thus they are full of crappy things like capitalization mistakes and things. This is my last week of working three jobs though!

    Thanks man, We're good. I'm pretty difficult to offend ;). Thanks for the advice, and that is one of my second choice kits along with an MCX if I cant get what I'm looking for out of the Masterworks.

    Yes, but I want a more open sound. Attack can be gained through means other than the hoops, i.e. wood choice, head choice, tuning, and the bearing edges. But there is no way to make the drum seem...

    Where did you find this information? I could stand corrected. But either way around, I guess its irrelevant when I think about it.

    oh, no not being argumentative, I was just pointing out that there wasn't a great deal of difference between the drum sets we have described.

    The Starclassic Bubinga is an 8 ply kit. Tama uses 1mm plies, making an 8mm thick shell compared to Pearl's 7.5mm 6 ply. There isn't a gigantic difference other than maybe a little more resonance and...

    I know, I did my research here. The 6 ply Pearl shell is slightly thinner (.5mm thinner) than the Tama Bubinga shell kits. I like the sound of Pearl better than Tama, that Simon Phillips kit was the...

    Agreed. With Bubinga on the inside, a Medium Thick shell (6 ply) is my best bet to bring out the characteristics of both woods. Plus I don't think they will offer me a 5 ply (I'm bending the rules as...

    Bearing Edges on Masters Kits?

    Hey I was Just wondering what the bearing edges are on Masters Kits. As I recall they are 45s on the toms with either a full round or 45 rounded on bass drums. Thanks!

    As I say I have seen them do it before. In my experience, they will do just about anything as long as they have the tools and capacity, both of which they have for this request.

    Fair enough. But truth be told, its the sharp attack, but also the transient tone and deep lows that make Bubinga the better choice in my mind. Birch can deliver in the attack department, but it...

    Mounting hardware should not be an issue, I am using a rack and optimounts for all toms. If someone has good gong drum mounting advice with Pearl hardware, now is the time! hahaha
