    I don’t think there’s anything to “understand”; I like small kick drums as much as larger ones. I wouldn’t choose an 18” kick if I were limited to only one setup, but it was a fine option to choose from. I’ve got other kits with 20” and 22” kicks...my sonic palette is not suffering

    I have a 16, 20, and 22, so I know what you mean. I think it’s the combination of sizes that people cannot “understand”.

    Wow!

    Sucherman's new kit is definitely the most stunning wood grain finish I've ever seen.

    The gold hardware looks fantastic as well.

    Perhaps. This wasn't a custom order so I accepted what was available. I think we all have been conditioned to have hangups about gear and ideal, quintessential sizes but at the end of the day, to me, drums are drums. After all, I'm not playing Budokan anytime soon.

    It's not that an 18" kick is bad, but in your Masterworks set-up, it appears out of place. Typically you'd see 18" bass drums accompanied by other proportionally small drum, to save room on a small stage, or for venues where quiet playing is necessary. On your kit, your toms, snare, and floors appear to be full-size, which will give a full, robust sound (if set up and tuned properly), and will take up plenty of space on a stage. But the kick drum won't perform to the same level as the rest of the kit, and won't save much space on a stage, since the rest of the kit seems to be full-size. That's what I was trying to say.



    ... let's see how this get's misconstrued

    I was thinking the same as well. I asked him for the specs on both kits, but all we got were the specs on the first kit. I’m guessing either his new kit will have a bigger kick or smaller toms.

My guess is, they printed a wrap, but I would like to know if they found a way to attach a real wood veneer to the metal rocket tom shells. I can't imagine that would endure the road and temperature fluctuations.
    Matt, back in the day that I used to build custom drums, we wrapped Aluminum shells with wood veneers all the time. We used a type of contact cement and it adhered fine and we never head that the veneer peeled or lifted. I might give that a try as I would like to build another set of rocket toms as my last aluminum ones I sold...you might be on to something there!.

    His new live kit just announced on his FB page, too many words and pictures to put here, so will add the link. Just Wow.

    "with the Studio Recipe which is 4 ply Maple and 2 inner ply Gum with 60 degree bearing edges. A new burst was stained over Quilted Cameroon Black Limba with rose gold hardware on all the drums. “TS” Styx font logo in rose gold leaf on each drum was tastefully done as certain light and angles pull them out. All the tension rods and inner screws and washers were done in rose gold as well and the inner Gum has a similar stain over the wood as the finish. All new hardware with a chromed rack completes the set up. All hoops are triple flanged and I went back to the classic lug design. I’d like to thank everyone at Pearl USA and PMI for knocking this one out of the park—and for John Farquharson’s long hours and patience over two years with this vision. There will be more pictures and film clips when this hits the stage. 22x16 bass drums, 6x7,8x7,10x8,12x8 rack toms,14x14,16x16,18x16 floor toms, 20x14 gong drum. The snares are 14x5.5 and one shell is the Maple Gum and the other is the Fiberglass/Kapur which is used in their amazing Hybrid Exotic line. This kit is a work of art and I’m so grateful for the efforts form everyone at Pearl. Thank you!"
