    Cuznred,

    My shells for the MCT "Martini" kit are supposed to arrive at the end of the week.

    I hope I can get a warm day sometime over the holidays to work on the kick drum. It will need to be drilled for spurs, a JG-16 mount (riser), a BT-3 tom mount, and the additional holes for the CL-250 bass drum lugs to accommodate the matching hoops and bass drum claws.

    I also have to drill one of the toms for floor tom leg brackets.

    It is really good to hear how much you like the MCT kits, CUZNRED. I know you weren't sure when you set up the first one.

    In the 2019 NAMM thread I mentioned that I would prefer fully finished hoops so I have a dealer looking into it. I love my MCT kit and decided to customize mine instead of moving up for now. I already replaced all the tension rods to stainless except the bass drum so far. The rods for the bass drum are like $10 each. I have 22x16, 10x7, 12x8, 16x16 and matching 14x5.5 snare. I plan to get a 14x14 also as going from the 12" tom to 16" is like falling in a well so the 14" would really even it out. These drum really resonate.

    I enjoy posts from you both, MusicMan & CUZNRED. Thanks!

    Thanks, these are my favorite drums in a long time. I think Pearl really got it right with these shells and I hope they are around for a while. My next stop is building one with 22x16 10x9 12x10 14x12 AND 16x13 hanging floors. Will do that one in ether matte natural or the matte black. I love the way the toms resonate and project in this series. They are also very easy to tune up

    Cuznred,

    You might as well special order the whole new kit since all of those sizes are backorder only at this point.

    awwww that sucks! Is pearl dropping the line? I hope they don't, I also hope they don't change it either. I prefer the super hoops to the die cast as they let the drums resonate more. The thinner shells also help with this. If anything Pearl needs to market the **** out of these drums, because they are the best deal out there right now. I dumped 2 Yamaha Maple Hybrids for these, people thought I was nuts, but to me the Pearls are the sound I am after.
