    Default Got my Music City Customs today!

    OK - they've arrived! I haven't had a chance to give 'em a tuning and play them yet, that'll be tomorrow. But as expected, the fit and finish is superb! I already have a Reference Pure kit in black and these MMC's are based on that design, so it's the same great attention to detail that went into these. The wrap is impeccable - it's a good traditional vintage wrap, but you don't see it as much as a sparkle, or black oyster, or white marine....

    What do ya think?

    Congrats!

    The wrap looks very good. I have to admit I'm surprised, as the sample pic on the MCC site made it look less appealing.
    Can't wait to see it set up!

    Edit: just checked your other thread... 13 days from order to arrival!

    Well, that's what Pearl said. They get them to you within 14 days of ordering. They can keep their promises. I believe this line will really move for them - like I said in another thread, when I got my original Reference Pure kit, I had to wait five months for a piano black 8x12 rack tom to come in from Taiwan. That can't be a positive thing for future customers. I'm really happy with these. I often said if they did RefPure in wraps, I'd get a set! I'm a vintage guy, but after a while, I got tired of having to deal with vintage quirks and limited tuning ranges. So here I am

    The turnaround time is impressive, especially considering that the line was just rolled out. Looks great!
    I own or have owned drums and cymbals made by every major manufacturer. My go-to kit is a DW Collectors series set.

    wrap isn't for me but congrats Bo! .. arrived before 14 days .. sweet

    let's see if Pearl can honor 14 days when I place my order for Ref Pure in 10,12,13,14,15,16,18,22,24,26 sizes

    I just can't decide on wrap option .. I have 3 wraps in question .. picking one is the hard part for me

    If you throw it in for free I won't mind but otherwise I don't need

    all those sizes will be a shell bank at my disposal to use as different setups at any given time

    Well, that's definitely a personal thing. I remember being a kid and looking at the backs of all those old Ludwig and Slingerland catalogs and not being able to choose a color too!
