    You are in Europe but you bought the drums from Musician's Friend in the US? How/who shipped them to Europe?

    DM's don't use the ISS though. The Opti-Loc mount that they use holds the drum through two tension rods and has a 3rd point that locks to a vent hole.

    Not a common, "off the shelf" size. So you have to buy the ones supplied by drum companies. I believe the size is 7-32, #7 size, 32 threads per inch.

    I don't see any 'plies' per say in the 3rd pic. Looks to be fiberboard of some type. I had heard that Exports were once made from fiberboard, and this looks to confirm. Unless my eyes deceive me. ...

    I bet you're right. I should know tonight, when my 24/13/16 kit is delivered.

    I don't remember if the 14" rack tom was offered when this series was first introduced. But when the decision was...

    Hmmmm....I had not thought about that. I will see if the tom mount looks to have extra spacing on the 13" tom, enough to maybe reach if it were mounted on a slightly larger diameter. Good call!

    An Oversight?

    Just thought I would post what I believe to be an oversight on Pearl's part. It seems when they added the 14" rack tom to this series, they forgot to make the lug design 6per side, to match the 14"...

    Craigslist will be your best bet for that price point. As mentioned, Ludwig Acro's, older Tama's and Pearl's are probably going to be what's available. I actually really like the metal Sensitone...

    Yup....my decision is now made for the Halo Black Glitter, when I order the 13/16/18/24 kit this fall. What a deal with the free tom. Anyone know if the free floor tom deal will go on forever?

    I wonder when Pearl made the change? Looking back at their 90's catalogs, they were doing the depth x diameter thing.

    Thanks for all the helpful responses. I think I'll get the Vision 8 lug, 5.5" deep model instead. This particular one is a bit high on price, and too similar to the Yamaha steel Custom Series that...

    Well, I'm 1 for 2 with this particular store. They did respond to me one time when I tried to negotiate on price for a used Ludwig Black Magic. But no response to this inquiry.

    Darn, good eye! That is a 10 lugger! The second pic is deceiving because it looks to have only 4 lugs per half. The pic without the heads installed clearly shows 10 lugs, not that your drawing...

    That's what has me intrigued. It actually does look like it's 6.5" deep. Unless the pic is deceiving me. See what you think. If not for the poor resolution, I could read the badge...
