    Some are the same and some are different.

    There is at least one hi-hat stand to match the new solo eliminator pedal.

    I have seen some stuff that IS going to be available in the US, but it's possibly not an exhaustive list. None of the US stuff that I have seen shows new RF or MRV finishes. All of the MCT finishes are revamped this year with a new White Marine Pearl wrap and several "striped" lacquer finishes, including the Chrome Contrail shown on the Dolbear site. The other "striped" MCT finishes I have seen do not match that page. The Cain & Able finish that came out at last year's NAMM in the MW series looks like it is going to be available in MCT. None of the lower level series finishes on that page match the finishes I have seen coming to the US.

I have no confirmation on that, and we probably won't get one, but it makes sense.....
    Marv (quicksticks) pointed this out to me as well. It makes total sense that Craviotto and Pearl would work together on something like this. So when the Pearl badge says "Handcrafted in the USA," they never said they crafted it.

    And that seems to be the distinction with the MCC drumsets, which only have Nashville on the badge. Nothing is made in the USA, they're only assembled USA. The new distinction on the solid shell snares indicates the shells are likely made in the USA, though we know not at Pearl.

    well ..
    mapex finally put out mounting system that's not magnetic, and doesn't hold your toms up by two lug screws its called the saturn evolution kit, comes in a bunch of new colors and your choice between birch/walnut and maple/walnut , encouraging you to nix and match the shells to your liking ...

    now, if they release a nice 9 or 10x14 tom ....i might be very interested..

    anything else happen out there?
