    Ha ha! Yeah, I live very close to the Golden Hill border. I like Golden Hill, actually (generally north of C Street). There are plenty of places I'd live there...and our money would've gone a lot further simply because of the Golden Hill location. Anyway, South Park is a nice balance between North Park and Golden Hill; a little quieter, but a quick walk/bike ride/drive to both places. We're digging it

    Makes me miss my BLX kit. I love the way you used the racks. It is very slick!

    Your DOTM entry made me revisit this thread. I think your rack would look better (stealthier) if you replace the front feet with a single cross bar. It might even end up being sturdy/stiff enough to do away with the rear feet, too. If the bass drum is lifted high enough at the front, the cross bar would be barely noticeable.

    One of the best uses of a rack I've seen period! Love those sizes, that arrangement and cymbal choices. Lovely lovely. Perfect example of old meets new.

    Got me thinking now! *plotting fingers*

    MARKNU1...first off let me say that I think your kit looks incredible. The white is very striking and with the "stealth" rack design it makes the drums so much more visible behind the hardware. I am curious though...you say you had them painted by a friend of yours that paints guitars...is your new finish a gloss finish or is it a satin finish. in the photos it is tough to tell but I am thinking the pearl in the paint makes it appears more satin than it truly is. The reason I am asking is I have been contemplating for a long time about refinishing my DLX kit in a pearl corvette yellow and I really want them to be a gloss finish..Once again you kit looks amazing...I sure hope you bought the beer at the end of the day!
    My wife says I am no longer permitted to buy any more drums...I said okay you cant buy any more shoes...we are presently at an impasse! I see drums...she sees shoes!

    Thanks! It IS actually a gloss finish. The pearl essence is in the undercoat, and provides a bit of sparkle to the overall finish, without being too sparkly. The final piece of the finish is a a gloss clear coat. The sparkly-ness and gloss are hard to capture in pictures; and exacerbated by my limited photography skills

Eventually I decided to have a friend--a professional guitar painter, who also paints drums--do them up in pearlescent white. His work is incredible; I'm very lucky to know him. Anyway, after a move to a new home, and numerous months recovering from that, I finally got the last few pieces of this kit (Superhoops and heads), and this is the end result. Of course, I had to set up them for a quick shoot

    Hello,
    I have a white Pearl MLX kit with 10”, 12”, 14”, and 16” toms, and I am looking for a 8” rack tom to add to my kit. Do you know of any for sale?
    Thanks,
    John
