    I think I remember the depth issue I encountered years ago; anyone who recalls better, feel free to clarify. When Pearl introduced the STL lugs, it was difficult to fit the lugs on a 8x7 tom shell (or 10x7 for that matter). So when Pearl made 7" deep toms with the STL lugs, they actually made the shell 7.5" deep, to better accommodate the lugs. So this would only apply to Reference Pure 7" deep toms, or Masterworks 7" deep toms with STL lugs. Depth shouldn't be an issue for Session or Masters tom lugs. Again... I may not be 100% correct on that, but I'm trying to recall a time in the past when the shell depth was not the actual advertised size.

    I see that.

    As the 12x8 is the same scenario when I compare both brands with each other. It made me wonder if my drums from pearl are over sized, or if the other were under sized. I guess I see now that the pearls are a little more oversized than the actual 7 and 8" advertised. The toms almost look close in size to my 10x8 and 12x9 DW toms.

    Where has the quality control gone? For shame.

    This may be one of the sillier threads in quite a while. Who cares? Does the drum sound good? Then what’s it matter if it’s 1/4” shorter than advertised?

    Only gear-obsessed YouTube basement drummers would give a ****.

    It was only a question. Youíre assumption of a basement drummer could not be further from the truth.

    Perhaps in your case, sure. But I stand By my assumption in the general sense.

    So how did they measure up? Make sure you cue isn't warped.

    You know what? I got to my local pool hall, had the cue in my hand, was ready to walk out of the place when I came to the sudden realization that a) caring how perfectly my drums are sized and b) using a pool cue to verify it is pants-on-head re****ed. I dropped the cue and left. I feel I’m a better man for it.

    To be fair. The suggestion was to use a rack, not a cue.

    You'll have to excuse him, JY can be ornery on some topics. Don't mention replacing letters with numbers and/or YouTube covers and you'll be okay.

    No where in the entire thread do I see anyone is upset, or sad, or bothered by the size difference. It was only a question of what determines when a shell is 7" or 8" or whatever when there is a big difference between two companies that classify the same size with a noticeable difference. Its called education / gaining knowledge by asking. Some people learn by asking.

    You are 100% right sir. I stand corrected. My knowledge of billiards hardware is admittedly limited. Especially when it comes to using it to measure drum shell depths.
