The wood is supposedly in the mahogany family but it seems to have more bite than Id expect from that wood when I tapped it. Beefy 3.0 mm mighty hoops and ten lugs instead of the usual eight that youd ordinarily find with Star drums, and a different style of lug as well. I look forward to playing it this weekend.
    That is a gorgeous drum steady! I hope you enjoy the sound as much as the looks! While I like the look of diecast hoops better, 3.0mm flange hoops are stronger than diecast, according to Gene Okamoto, Pearl legend. To be fair, he was specifically referring to DW True Hoops, but I bet the Tama hoops of the same thickness are similar in strength.

    Thanks Matt. Played the drum for a bit last night. Lovely tone and rimshots felt so solid. Gonna tune her up a bit higher today. Makes me wonder how these hoops would have fit with the copper hand-hammered Special Reserve snare. I adore that drum but the rims feel like theyll dent if you lay into them (actually they will).

    That's why I sold those brass hoops immediately after I purchased the Copper Star Reserve. I don't know if Tama is making the 3.0mm flange hoops for 8 lug snare drums. If they decide they need them to achieve a specific sound, they will make them.

    Nice colors and I see they are running between $500-$800 bucks but does that price reflect the material being used or because it’s a Pearl 50th Anniversary snare 1946-1996. What I mean is which model snare is that without all the colored hardware and badge.

    Nice. I always wondered how Johnny did those inlays, unless that’s simply a stain design.

    From what I’ve seen, those are diamonds made of super thin layer of wood. Which are layed in a pattern.

    The pattern goes on a strip and the strip getsayed in the wood itself.

    My guess would be that they're all inlaid wood pieces, cut on a bevel and then laid and glued into the thin strip, which is put between 2 pieces of of the outer ply of the shell.
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier, Arbiter Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, PREMIER, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    5 Kits and 11 Snares, and I still don't have enough!
