    Nice snare collection and rack.

    I have 6 of the Pro-Line snare racks, but they take up a lot of horizontal space. It would be nice to have a taller rack like that.

    Only people who have buyers remorse after spending thousands of dollars on "branded" Chinese snare drums that are collecting dust are making a conspiracy out of this.

    Dale,

    I get quite a few requests for my custom drum builds (including guys from Pearl and a few endorsers who've seen them). However, I don't make them for other people.

    I'm glad you are proud of spending thousands of dollars to get a badge and a strainer and a sticker that are worth less than $75 on these branded snare drums. I thought you were a math guy.

    It sounds fine. However, there isn't much to the sound of a snare drum this small.

    It really serves a specific purpose and is more of a novelty.

    You could also drill through the holes in the Pearl grommets to make the holes slightly larger.

    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.

    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.
