    Hi,
    So I purchased a JR set for my grandson who has taken up an interest in my full size kit, but at 7 years old its just way to big for him - He helped me set them up, tune them up and then we started the lessons of rock drumming 101....

    The only issue so far is with the rack mount toms - they have a 5/8 diameter tube and mounts and are set up just like the regular mounts to accept the stop locks/ memory, however there were no stop locks / memory locks included for this 5/8 size so they just spin on the mount tube arms, no matter how tight you make the set screw after a few hits they just spin out of position...

    I contacted Pearl tech support, who got right back to me the same day, and they admitted it was an engineering over sight when they went to the small 5/8 tube arms... that was over 2 months ago so i am hoping to report back soon that they have engineered a new stop lock and will be shipping a pair to me....hopefully they will also send to anyone else who has purchased this JR set as well....

    I just sent a reminder email to Pearl so I hope to report back some good news on this issue soon

    Pearl does have some 5/8" stop locks. Perhaps you could try one to see if it works.
