    Default Oriollo/Page Frankenkit... The beginning

    I finally received my 12x8 Oriollo tom shell to start experimenting with the Page Drums free-floating cable-tensioned hardware. If all goes well, I'll order a 22x14, and 15x12-13 (haven't decided on depth yet). Here's an indoor, and outdoor pic of the bare shell... Not even a badge.

    This is just a test, using some existing parts I had in my garage. I didn't even clean off the dust. The finished product will have a Gauger RIMS mount, and new heads, and will be clean.

    I tested it against my Mapex Orion - both are 12x8, with worn-in clear Emperors over Ambassadors (smooth white for the Mapex, clear for the Oriollo) - and the Oriollo sounds just as good, but with a bit more "bite". I may experiment with porting the reso head just for gits and shiggles, since the Oriollo shell has no air vent. So far, I'm very pleased.

    Thanks! I'm pretty stoked with it so far. I have a Gauger RIMS mount, and a Noble & Cooley CoolMount on order for it. And I have an S-Hoop that I'm curious to try on the batter side, and a chrome Remo Starfire head for the reso side. And once I hear back from Oriollo, I'll be ordering a 15x12 floor tom shell.

    <<<UPDATE>>>

    I made a few modifications today...

    1. Switched the old suspension mount for Gauger Alloy RIMS, and a Noble & Cooley CoolMount
    2. Put an S-Hoop on the batter side
    3. Put a Remo Starfire chrome head on the bottom

    It sounds noticeably fuller now than with the old, clamped-on suspension mount. I may actually try some Gauger RIMS on my Orions, to see if it will have the same effect. I need to get some outside pics tomorrow in the daylight. But for now...
