    I'm assuming that Pearl does not make an air vent that fits 7.5 - 10mm thick drums. Or do they???
    I'm fairly sure an AH02 would work. We use that on our firecracker FCP1250 snare 8-ply poplar (10mm shell thickness)

    Hmmm ... I agree ... I might have to pick up a couple of the AH-04 and see what I can use them for

    Ahh, okay. So no diecast vents like the AH-01 or AH-03. Well, maybe I can cut down an AH-20 to work with shells thicker than 7.5mm. I just dont know where to buy AH-20 air vents. I can find the 01 and the 03 models, but no 20's.

    Tommy,

    You can just call any Pearl authorized dealer and they can get the AH- vents for you. I just ordered (2) of the AH-04 ones this morning so I can check them out. They were only $2 a piece.

    Nice. I've got a set of Beech shells I'm going to be building out and the bass drums and snare drums are 8.1mm thick. The Pearl vents are the sleekest vents on the market and I could only find the AH-01 and 03 models out on the internet. Since they were described as being for drums of certain plys (not thicnkess) it left me with a number of questions about them.
