    That is truly well said Paul! I have been trying to ignore as much of the nonsense as possible as well, and life is sure better when you just ignore the stupidity!

    Seems I have noticed a lot of inactivity lately as well. I know I haven’t been on here near as much. When Pearl killed the iPhone app that made it very hard for me to keep up, and it is quite hard to...

    Definitely a 1st gen, and a beauty at that. Looks to be on very good condition. Those things are beasts! I was surprised how versatile the tuning range is on that shallow a drum.

    Congrats, that’s a very nice drum! It sounds like a first gen with that throw off. Are the lugs round and smooth, or hexagonal with a line pattern? The first gen are the only ones that have the...

    Pearl did make a steel shell in the 5" depth, but only very early on. Best I can tell it was only in the catalogs the first couple years, and was soon dropped and only the 6.5" depth remained. While...

    You have a first gen FF? I missed that part. From your post, you asked what would fit a 3rd Gen FF. Maybe I misunderstood your post:

    That's a beauty, looks immaculate for sure Paul! That's a great price on it too! I love mine (have the same shell) but I usually keep the brass insert in most of the time. It's awesome having both...

    I also swapped out the hoops on my brass free floater for 2.3 super hoops, also to open up the sound and I actually think it looks better now as well. So I completely get what you're going for.

    You can use the SR-010 strainer from the 2nd gen FF, they will fit with no issues. You can also use the SR-1000F which is the original from the 3rd gen FFs. It's a lot pricier than the other options...

    My exports have power tom sizes, and I never had any trouble tuning them. I actually think it is easier in a way, you can tune them a little tighter for better rebound but still get a little...

    Lonny that is one beautiful set. I love my Masters, but one day I hope to own a set BLX or MLX from that era. I love the long lug look and those drums sound great.
