    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.

    You can still backorder it. If you have some of the money for it now, a dealer might let you order it with a deposit so you don't have to pay for it all at once.

    The 10x10, 13x11, and 15x14 sizes are also going to be special order at this point.

    Yeah, I hope they don't drop MCT as I would like to add to mine. I guess special order is better than not being able to get them.

    Cuznred,

    I'm checking on this. A couple weeks ago, there were a lot of the sizes still in stock in various colors. It might just be a glich in the inventory results. I just ordered a 10x7 last week and it shipped yesterday and I know there was more than one of them left when I ordered it.

    However, it still remains that some of the sizes (e.g. 12x10, 13x11, 14x12F, 15x13, 15x14, 16x14F) were always a special order and not stock sizes.

    The 10x9, 10x10, and 14x12 rack toms are stock items. It's the 12x10, 13x11, and 15 size rack toms that are special order (always).
