    Nice kit... looks great with that black rack... I wish they would start powdercoating the ICON racks black
    There will come a time when your dreams come crashing around you. It is at that point you alone must make the decision. Do you pick up the pieces and start over? Or do you walk away and never look back?

    Great looking kit. I especially like the slide graphic on the kick drum head. Oh wait..... never mind.

    Yeah i know but like i told the guy from the store, if they at Pearl would tell you that you have to wait one year if you order a kit and they call you after 10 months that its ready to pick it up you're verry happy because it's 2 months sooner, but now they tell you to wait six months but when that period is passed it wil be delayed and delayed,......

    Probably in both cases you will have to wait the same period of time but in the second case you have been 3, 4 times disappointed and angry and in the first case you are very happy because its 2 months earlier

    I feel ya man.. I have gotten pretty lucky when putting my VX together. I have the black on black finish and Pearl (USA) had my component drums in stock when I ordered them. It could be that your finish (SR) is not a stock Pearl (europe) finish and it's coming from China. Who knows how they run production schedules and where they fit special orders into the mix. Sorry if I missed something from earlier posts..I kinda just jumped in here.

    Hope everything works out for you

    Looks like it's going to be a nice kit once it's all finished. Mind posting all the specs up? (Cymbals too.)

    Sure, no problem.

    Pearl Vision VSX Strata Red with black hardware

    22 X 18 (2x) Bass
    8 X 7 Tom
    10 X 8 Tom
    12 X 9 Tom
    14 X 14 Floor
    16 X 16 Floor
    14 X 5,5 Snare

    Everything mounted on a Pearl DR80 drumrack

    Cymbals (for now) : Meinl HCS 14 " HiHats
    Meinl HCS 16 " crash
    Stagg 17" Medium crash
    Meinl HCS 20" ride

    All cymbals are about to be replaced by Zildjians Z3 and A Custom series.
    All drumheads are about to be replaced by Evans heads.

    The first thing that's up for replacement is the Stagg cymbal (totally destroyed and cracked up) by a Zildjian 17" A custom crash, and i'm getting a decent drumchair (i want the pearl D-2000BR) because with the one i now have i get backpain after 10, 15 minutes of playing.


    But like i told in the first post, one step at a time .....

    Well I think once you get your new pies and some new heads, finish off the kit, and get a quality throne, it's going to be a lifetime kit. Sounds like it's just going to be great. Also, have you thought about your posture while playing? That hurt me when I first started out. Once fixed, even with my cheap throne, it doesn't hurt at all over a full set. (2 hoursish.)

    Yeah the intention is to keep this kit for a (very) long period of my life

    I' don't really think my posture is the problem because i've played sets of an hour and a half with my previous kit (Pearl Export) on the throne that came along with that kit and i've never had backpain but when i picked up this kit i get this throne for free along with it ..... now i know why it was free
