    The Evans calfskin looking head on the front of the bass drum is nice touch too!

    Some custom titanium drums are on my upcoming list of projects as well. :)

    I agree.

    Unless your playing long and hard enough to break a sweat and to get the heart rate up, it's probably not much exercise.

    The cotton wood shell looks really nice, but I wish Sonor didn't use all the extra bulky hardware that detracts from it.

    13x11 and 14x12 are floor toms on my kits.

    I double bag them both so I can fit the legs. For example, I put the 13x11 floor tom in a 13x11 case and then put that inside of a 15x13 case so that...

    Now we know why they make cases in those tom sizes that you don't seem much of these days.

    Thanks.

    Incidentally, when I purchased the FF chassis for these builds, they all had shells (from which I removed the Pearl badges that you see here). When I sold the original shells, nobody...

    No problem. It's nice to see them whenever you post them.

    Looks good. Hope you enjoy refinishing it to match the rest of your kit. :)

    Thanks again.

    If I wanted to use a shell from another branded snare drum, I would remove the badge and it would no longer have that branding. I would put Pearl hardware on it along with a Pearl...

    Yes, this is one of the drawbacks of the design of the Optimount system.

    One thing that helps me is loosening the two hex nuts on either side of the body of the mount (that are used to adjust the...

    Yes. Thanks.

    I occasionally see Pearl Free Floating snare drums sold with custom shells and nobody disputes the brand of the drum because the trademark system is recognized with or without the...

    Thanks. Pearl Drums have always given me great satisfaction and quality service over the years.

    I'm proud to play Pearl drums and would rather use as much of their hardware as possible. I...

    I don't agree with your philosophy either. I would never order some other company's badged shells and put Yamaha hardware on them.

    I think Oriollo's stainless steel teardrop hardware looks much...

    Good points, and I agree.

    It's silly to make an issue out of one component of a drum when it is common practice to interchange components (hardware, heads) anyway. Should we insist that all...

    No, I don't. But, I think you have a problem with it.

    If you don't think it's a good idea, then don't do it for yourself.

    I'm proud to play Pearl drums and certainly don't mind endorsing the...

    I like the custom finish on this one.

    I think the undoing of some of these 10" and 12" snares was Pearl's choice of the "Liquid Amber" color. They should have stuck with their usual course of...

    No. Pearl doesn't make their own metal shells anyway. I also noted in the original post the the shells were cast by Oriollo.

    Moreover, these are Free Floating drums where custom replacement...

    Hi,

    Oriollo is a company in Serbia that will custom cast with the bell bronze (and other materials). Each of the shells is 3mm thick.

    The heads are Remo Powerstroke 3 coated. I'm not sure...
