    I agree with the OP - I have them on my MMP and I reckon they're awful where they are. It doesn't help that they're massive, chunky, eye catching gold units either.

    But the drums still sound good!

    I'm with you. I'd have them in the same positions, but on the underside rather that top side. Firstly they'd be much more out of sight, no bad thing, secondly if you have toms over the bas drum, you won't have "air blasts" agitating the toms reso heads (I'm sure it makes next to no difference, but still) and thirdly if you mic internally, feeding the cable out through one of the vents would make much more sense with them on the underside.

    Aren't the Fat Tone hoops a difference? The birch plies on the smaller diameter drums and African mahogany plies on the larger another difference? Different finishes than what was offered on MMX and the wraps available on Music City Custom?

    More the MMP due to the mounts, BD spurs, and leg brackets. The only difference between the MRV and the MMP is the hoops (fat tone vs die cast, respectively).

    The MMX, MMP, and MRV shell construction and lugs are all the same!
