    Pearlygates,

    I was surprised that Pearl did the cut out in the batter hoop when they could have just used the plate from the ordinary Jungle Gig bass drum mount which is about an inch longer than the triangular lift they use for the Midtown. They must have committed to the hardware with the triangular lift and then realized that they would need to modify the hoop to go along with hit.

    I ordered a Masterworks version of the Midtown set up and had them leave all the hardware off of the 16x14 kick drum shell so I could install the Jungle Gig lift myself. I had them make 1.5" hoops for the MW kit and didn't need to modify the batter hoop.

    Looks great.
    While I'd like to think there is another good reason for a single hole in the BD mount, it's probably mainly to maximise hardware sales...?

    So it's just the kick drum that makes this kit a mini?

    No, it's the 16" kick drum and the 13" floor tom.
