    The Zebra wood and Black Limba are both very nice looking veneers Al!

    I agree I think they turned out amazing. Plus we've upped the delivery times for MW now. You can get them within 90 days from purchase confirmation.

    It's cool to see gumwood as an option now. That should help achieve a vintage sound in certain configurations.
    Will there be shell packs of these similar to the Masterworks-derived Reference series?
    Also, several of the NAMM videos described the Stadium series as having thick 8 or 10 ply drums, but your site says otherwise.

    Yes the gumwood (used as part of shell recipes in the 60's and 70's) has a nice retro / vintage sound.

    Thanks for the update on the Stadium series, I've notified our Marketeers. It has the same shell as the old CZX series 8 and 10 ply shells.

    Yes, those are absolute winners. Black limba seems to be on trend right now (I recall seeing a rather pretty Ludwig Legacy black limba finish recently)...

    Raymond Massey and I talked about these new CZX shells yesterday at the lunch. I noticed off the bat the outer ply was quilted maple. The old CZX were birds eye maple. Raymond also indicated the bearing edges were different. The current CZX kills! All of the Sonic Select drums sounded great but my faves were the Studio and Stadium in that order.

    Pearl did it again.

    The drum market and its engineering, I think that nowadays with Pearl, DW (and maybe Sonor) ahead, its unbeliveable!

    Any idea when any demo videos of the studio shells will go live? Want to keep them in mind for my imminent Masterworks order...

    I've got a Studio recipe Masterworks and while I don't know when there will be an official video, I can definitely say I am completely happy with the shells; audibly and visually.
