    Al Percival or Derek Wolfford; Are the Crystal Beats better with 1.6 mm triple Flanged hoops? Shouldn't they have Super Hoops 2 or Fat Tone Hoops? Does it matter on an Acrylic Kit? This is what we're asking about and don't really Know.

    While I'm sure the 1.6mm hoops are just fine, it's important to remember some choices are made to meet certain price points, not because they are the absolute best choice regardless of cost or profitability .
    I own or have owned drums and cymbals made by every major manufacturer. My go-to kit is a DW Collectors series set.

    I made an LED lamp for my son out of a pearl snare. I put a clear head on top and used automotive LED lights inside the shell. The lights come with 2 sided tape that sticks really well, I've also used these on nitro RC cars and they haven't come off. They are 12 volt lights, so what I did was get a 12 volt plug/transformer like you'd see on a racetrack from Radio Shack. Just cut the end off the transformer and the LED strip. Twist them together and tape them up and your all set. I ran the wire through the vent hole. I hung the snare on the wall, looks store bought.

    Yeah, I do not know what affordable means as that is different to everyone. If you want to say they are cheaper than the Vistalites or small companies like my GMS in my signaure, then I can see what you are saying and why some would be attracted to that.

    Let's face it though, many of us choose companies we are comfortable with & trust. Taking that into account, it does not surprise me why so many current Pearl players would be excited about this kit. The thing is the shells are more than likely outsourced and the name and feeling comfortable with the hardware & lugs are really all that is being offered here. Because of that and the fact they can be delicate is probably why Pearl has not given their now standard lifetime guarantee.
    I think also think the Pearl name will help sell this kit to the people that put their trust in this company. I myself have always wanted a Bonham sized vistalite kit, but cost was always an issue for what I always thought was a kit that had a short window on looks. Many of the kits I've seen all have the crazing people are describing if they are not in fact cracked. I've come to realize that acrylic shells just do this, and this thread seems to back that assumption up. In the end, I would consider a low end Crush acrylic kit
    For the looks only aspect of it and because it would just look cool at gigs. I figure if they're going to be trashed in a few years, might as well not pay top dollar now for what's considered "better" just to watch it crack.
