    Hoping to have it mostly done by NAMM.

    just try to not forget the most important part: sound sample. i'd like to ear how they sounds free of sound processing....and yes,it's intriguing to me,because the unanimous claim that the SSC is the best value of the whole pearl line up !! ?

    Given the wood combination I’m expecting great things around the sound but yeah I’ll get some clips/vids up but probably won’t be until after NAMM.

    Given the thought they put into these, the value is undeniable. Hell they even include a decent kick pillow and pre-apply Velcro in the kick shell to keep it in place:

    Jonah, I think your going to get your signature sound and it will be awesome! Can't wait to see your kit all setup!

    Congratulations on the kit. I know they will serve you well.
    The MW snare is a perfect compliment as well. Enjoy.

    Thanks! I believe you are correct on the sound....heads being dropped off here tomorrow, and a really good friend and excellent drummer in his own right, is going to help me with figuring stuff out. Told him he could be my roadie when I suddenly became famous....
