  1. 14" and 16" on the floor or mounted? What's your preference and why?

    I bought an Export Select new back in 2004. It was the "fusion" setup of that era...10/12/14/22 with the 14" being a mounted tom. I haven't gone back to a traditional floor tom since, even having a...
  2. Just picked up a Chestnut Fade MCX from eBay!

    Some of you may have seen that I was looking for a Lava Bubinga BCX. Seeing as how they can no longer be ordered and I have very specific tastes when it comes to tom sizes (which makes what I'm...
  3. Yeah, he messaged me and I asked for pics and...

    Yeah, he messaged me and I asked for pics and sizes...then I saw the kit. Definitely pretty, but I'm a mounted "floor" tom kind of guy. I was looking for a 20/12/14 or 22/14/16 three piece. Then...
  4. One word...price!

    One word...price!

    Oh, it's a sad day! I always liked the MCX too, maybe Wine Red or the Quilted Bubinga Sunburst. Thanks for the response Al!

    Beautiful! How much extra were the black lugs/hoops?

    Yeah, aware of all the above, including the finish. Unfortunately, there is nothing currently in the Pearl lineup that speaks to my tastes in size and finish that wouldn't be either Masterworks or...

    I checked out that GC one the other day. However, it appears to have been taken down. They were the wrong sizes anyways. Looking for 18x20 bass, 10x12 mounted, and 12x14 mounted.
  9. Availability of BCX special order? Al Percival?

    I'm looking to order my dream kit, a BCX in Lava Bubinga. I know they've been out of production for a couple of years now, but I'm guessing they keep stuff around awhile for custom orders for people...

    So...I unpacked the kit over the weekend and figured it out. The eBay lister had it all wrong. The rack tom is 9x12 and the floor tom is 11x14. For the floor tom, it was the standard 11x14 rack...
  11. Need help trying to figure out where this VSX kit came from and what year...

    So I recently picked up a VSX 3-piece in Gun Metal Sparkle off of eBay for an excellent price. I wanted something "decent" that I could gig with, and the wrapped finish looks great and is durable. ...
  12. I must say that while I prefer the open sound of...

    I must say that while I prefer the open sound of triple flanged hoops, I much prefer the tuning stability of die cast...which for regularly gigging drummers, saves a TON of time tweaking and tuning. ...
  13. I gotta say, I'm not impressed with the new Masters offering! :(

    No more die-cast hoops! Say whaaat?!?! Between taking away the fully lacquered bass drum hoops and now die cast rims, it seems like the Masters series is getting cheaper with every new incarnation....
  14. Weight specs on current Championship and CarbonCore snares?

    I'm looking at getting a new marching snare sometime in the next 6 months, and am starting to evaluate my options. I played Championship FFXs in high school and loved them. My only complaint was...
  15. Thanks for the clarification Al! It's a small...

    Thanks for the clarification Al! It's a small issue to me that I can easily rectify...I'll still never use anything but Pearl!
  16. Anyone know if this was changed from the earlier...

    Anyone know if this was changed from the earlier incarnations of the MCX series? A few years ago, I thought I saw MCXs in my local Sam Ash with the stainless rods. I think that's why I kind of...
  17. Agreed. I'm kind of disappointed they don't...

    Agreed. I'm kind of disappointed they don't include them on the MCX/BCX lines when they already use the brass swivel nuts. It seems like a cut corner that shouldn't have been cut, IMO.
  18. Do BCX drums come with stainless tension rods?

    I finally bought the first piece of what I am hoping will eventually be a full BCX Lava Bubinga kit. I got the 14x6.5 snare. After one practice this weekend, I'm loving it! I noticed, however,...
  19. At least by .5cm. Enough to affect the tuning! ...

    At least by .5cm. Enough to affect the tuning! I contacted the drum shop I bought it from on eBay and started a return request. I sold my other snare to buy this one, so I'm a little anxious to...
  20. It's a new drum...so I'm perplexed!

    It's a new drum...so I'm perplexed!
  21. Free Floater Shell Out of Round! Anyone else have this issue?

    I just picked up a 6.5x14 maple/mahoghany free floater. I took the heads off this evening and put it back together from scratch, as I wanted to center the logo between the lugs. While I had the...

    I love it, another Pearl/Sabian guy! That's a nice collection of bronze you have there! Wine Red is my favorite Pearl color, by far. I hope to one day own a birch Masterworks in satin Wine Red...

    ECX Availability? Pearl guys? ;)

    Can Export Custom drums still be ordered? I'm looking for one tom to complete my microkit and have been searching everywhere for new old stock and even used. No luck!

    I use my VBX (in sig.) as my main and only full size kit. That means rehearsals, gigging, and recording. I have cases for everything and am super anal retentive about my gear, so always put...
