    Thanks.

    It actually wasn't too hard to find the different places where the snare wires could go.

    However, making the custom 8" snare wires with the "Pearl" end plates was hard to do.

    That's the drawback of spending a lot of money on a high end kit with a trendy custom finish. They rarely hold resale value.

    There's good reason that most companies keep putting out "natural"...

    There are so many other social media options now that the PDF is no longer a destination platform like it used to be.

    From what I've seen of the Midnight Sparkle finish, it is not the best choice. Because of the dark color, it is not as "sparkly" as some of the other Pearl finished in the Masters line.

    I don't think Pearl has ever made a 14" FF snare that only has 8-lugs.

    He might have been referring to a 13" marching snare drum.

    It's all personal preference, but any of those heads will sound a little different and you might like them better.

    The Pearl stock heads really don't sound that bad for general use.

    Dale,

    Cocktail snare drums are used for cocktail (stand up) kits. I've built a few of them. I keep improving the design so I'm working on yet another one.

    Adding the halo flakes to the different sparkle finishes is a great option!

    Dale,

    I think paying $1,500-$2,000 for a snare drum with an "elegant" strainer and a different badge is crazy. But, that's just my opinion.

    Hi,

    Yes, the one in the picture is a 14x10 "floor snare" drum made through Masterworks. You can always order these and various sizes are available (besides the 14x10).
