    Default What happened to the Oriollo discussion?

    Two recent threads, and active as of this morning, just vanish? What gives?

    I don't know. I commented on that thread this morning... maybe Pearl doesn't want to allow promotion of this revolutionary drum manufacturing technique on their forum?

    My comment was removed from my own recent posts, so I can't even see what I wrote.

    I can understand if they've made the decision to not have what are basically other companies' advertisement threads on their forum. That said, I have twice had completely appropriate posts deleted for no apparent reason over the last year while posts that are nothing but personal attacks on people are left for all eternity. I can't figure out where lines are drawn anymore. It all feels kind of random.

    Maybe Orillio should start their own forum. I see no need for them to advertise here. It's different when a PDF user discusses them. When your PDF handle is Orillio or how ever it's spelled, it's clear to see they are trying to use Pearl success as a springboard. If it was removed...good for Pearl!

    Seems as if all of CompactDrums' recent threads have been deleted as well.

    News alert: if anyone comes up with something that Pearl hasn't done or thought of yet, I guess don't bother sharing it here...

    It's Oriollo. And they aren't spring boarding off anyone's success. Majority of their products pearl has never made and probably will never make. You just sound silly

    And the seamless aluminum drumset is something no one has ever done...I can guarantee Oriollo doesn't need a PDF thread to be successful lol

    ok, but does Pearl make one-piece, spun metal snares? If not, then Orillio isn't stealing any of their market because in a sense it's a different product.

    Pearl is a mega company and if they feel threatened by some small, custom outfit, that's really insecure on their part.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

    Who are the actual mods around here? Does anyone know? If you know, why don't you ask them?

    Exactly. The seamless aluminum drumset was posted to a bunch of different forums. It's quite an achievement.

    I'm surprised Pearl let it go on as long as it did. Oriollo was certainly using the Pearl forum to cultivate customers, and promote and advertise their products. Didn't Al Percival order a drum from them? I would not even know about them if not for the PDF.

    Look the video up on YouTube. Vukan's new seamless aluminum drum kit sounds great!
