    Derek,

    Any chance a demo video is forthcoming? I'm curious to see how these sound...as are others, I'm sure.

    durp on me .. didn't see that .. thanks Derek

    also by picture of interior/edges, is it safe to assume shells are 6 plies of Kapur while the 1 outer ply is Poplar? at least that's what it looks like to me

    Love the 24"x14" size being offered, look forward to hearing samples of these.

    The 7-ply breakdown is (2x Poplar / 4x Kapur / 1x Fiberglass).... I've included pages from the Wood Fiberglass supplement to look over as well. The full version is available for download at http://pearldrum.com/support/product-catalogs/

    What is the purpose of the Poplar plies? Sonics? Takes lacquer finishes better?

    I'm curious about this, too. This sounds like the kit will be somewhere above a visions but below a masters in shell quality. Why no maple/fiberglass set up?

    On par with SSC, perhaps?
