    Default ATTN: Gene 1997 MMX SILVER SPARKLES

    ATTN Gene,,,,,,,, RE: 1997 Limited Edition Silver Sparkles


    I probably talked to you about my (2) 1997 Silver Sparkle Limited Edition MMX Kits before.

    Having the pleasure of owning number 39 and number 79,
    I have run across 2 more of these kits. The most recent one, the guy tells me has a 22x18 Kickdrum not a 22x16 like I have with my other 2 kits. In his Pictures it does appear to be a 22x18.

    I was wondering if the 1997 Limited Editions came with all the same tom sizes and just the kick drum was different sizes or did some of the 100 sets have different diameters and depths than the 10x10,12x10,14x12,16x14 kits I have and have seen?

    Basically, I was wondering if any came with let's say a 16x16 or 18x16 floor tom?

    Thanks

    PS: Drumboo says he has a 10x9 and a 22x16,22x18 kick in his LIM ED. Silvers


    PSS. IF ANYONE ever hears of an orphaned 1997 Number 39/100 Silver Sparkle Limited Edition MMX Snare POST me a Note so I can try to bring it home to his family

    maybe this will confuse u alittle

    I bought my Silver Sparkle LTD edition kit 2nd hand back in 99
    the set had 10x8 12x10 14x 12 and 16x 14 toms as well as a 22x 16 kick

    a month after i bought that kit i talked to our distributor over here and they had a 22x18 kick in stock... so i ordered that one

    confusing yet ?? no .. .....?.........

    the serial # on the badge of the 22x18 Kick starts of with 9800..

    since we both have those LTD kits we know that our other badges start with 9700.. cause they were made back then ....needless to say that the other kick was build in 98 ....

    i also have to say that some of my other silver drums have numbers like 970153 which looks like they made more then 100 kits ... i also remember having the 98 catalog of our distributor that offerd every sizes you may wanna have in silver sparkle .....


    oh boy

    Default OOOOO BOOO every different size

    I am not confused.

    It appears that the 22x18 is not a LIM,,, Just a Sparkle.

    I would assume that it has no tag on inside that says Limited Ed and date made and all.....

    As for me, I like all my drums. But figured they probably did make deeper and shallower sizes,,,,,

    I just so happen to have bought Twin sets,,, minus 1 Snare

    PS. What are sizes of your GLX kit?

    Default Paper Label

    WOW boo,

    No Paper Label, hmmm

    ALL 11 of my drums have Masters Custom Metal Badges with the 9700... serial numbers Matching. Plus Paper tags inside each shell that say Limited Edition Made in Japan, 4/1997 and 7/1997 numbers 39/100 and 79/100

    Only thing I am missing is 2 Certificates and a Number 39 Matching Snare Drum

    The US and German versions were slightly different, exactly how they were different I don't know, but the "with/without" paper badges appears to be one of the differences.

    Default Made In Biesbahden?

    Gene,,,,,,

    The German ones were made in(V) Biesbahden not Japan? HEHE forgive my spelling, BOO.
    Interesting omission on the inside Labels, Gene.

    Have you ever played one of these kits, G?
    I can Loan ya one if you ever come to Baltimore.

    I never did think to ask if any Limited Editions were made in 6 ply?

    Anyone Know the answer to that, too?

    Default Wiesbaden

    Yup,

    wiesbaden,

    Either way you say it, You and I got our Yen worth.

    What different sizes do you want other than another 22x16 kick?
    I think the only different sized drum I have is my 10x10, all the others are the same.

    I'd love a 22x18, a 16x16 and an 18x16

    Also,,,,, did they ever make these Limited's in MRX do you know?

    Now the only stock Silver is MRX, MMX would be special order.
