    same here, on my masters kits I wanted my floor toms to be 14x12 and 16x14 but they were not in stock and the shellpacks only have them with the 14x14 and the 16x16. I am not huge on square sizes but like you, I didn't have the patience to wait 3-6 months for stock drum sizes. Nashville should have a healthy shellbank on hand in the US so a custom size order doesn't take half a year to get to your house.

I really miss the Tama mounting system, I know the Pearl Optimounts can be used with other drums, how bout the Tama Starcast mounting system would they work with Pearl drums?
    I don't think it's worth the effort/expense to try. You would need Tama Starcast diecast hoops with the special holes that accommodate the Statcast tom mounts. OR, they make (made) universal hoop grips (HPGP) that can be attached to hoops, but they may not be available, and they may not fit Pearl Superhoops, because Superhoops are thicker than standard Tama hoops.
