    I've yet to see anything official from Pearl. Just some guys speculating MCX and BCX are terminal because they're launching the new Complete line. Perhaps this is a case of addition rather than substitution? NAMM opens tomorrow so we'll know soon enough. If anything, I expected to see additional BCX finishes unveiled.

    Al did mention in one of his posts somewhere, after a member speculated the MCX/BCX being discontinued, that we could still special order add ons for them, but not complete shell packs. I think their fate might be sealed.

    Safer to think that they are axing them as if it was an addition there would be way WAY too many product lines of the same gear under the Pearl badge.

    Wondering what the whole "complete" part of the series means. Looks like an oval badge like reference too. Pearl is always changing things up, so this discontinuation of a series here and a series there is nothing new : ). They've been doing that for over 20 years. The great thing about Pearl is that they have always been great about letting you add-on drums for your kit even if it was discontinued.

    That is what I think too. Hopefully these new Masters are more than MCX with Fat Tone or Super Hoops.

    Some may disagree but oh the golden times when there were series called Pearl Masters Custom and Pearl Masters Studio.

    E: Hmm. It would be interesting if there are 6 ply 7,5 mm, 6 ply 5.4 mm, 4 ply 5 mm + re rings Maple and 6 ply 7,5 mm birch shells available these new Masters.

    This would be great news. 6 ply kits are nice, but I don't want to have to order a Masterworks, to get a 1 wood, thin shell kit.
