    So, the new Music City Custom Solid Shell that are, "Handcrafted in the USA" --

    Does "Handcrafted" mean they are lathed, routed, finished, and assembled in the USA?

    Or does "Handcrafted" mean, like the rest of the Music City Custom drums, they are simply assembled in the USA?

Perfect for Drum Corp or Pipe Band drummers and percussionists, but great as a drum kit player for warming up and working on technique. The middle Ally's are for French grip, the 1st ones for American grip, and the outside ones for German and traditional. Really unique and useful piece of kit. Theres a reason why Dom Famularo, Craig Blundell and Thomas Lang love them.





    Don't worry! i'm over 19, i'm fully proficient and qualified in the hi hat pedal!
    Whatever helps a drummer out, but this contraption just seems like overkill and clunky. Just my thoughts.

    I seems like those golf tools that were made fun of in the movie Tin Cup. It’s not as bad as this thing for guitarist, but it seems just as unnecessary.

    I really like the Music City snares. Would like to see/hear them in person. Maybe Gearfest‽ It would be cool if them make them from scratch in Nashville.

    The Masterworks sets in the Pearl catalogs have had a lot of stripes so I can see why they are introducing them into lower models. Gives a sense of higher quality because of the Masterworks precedent. I do like them but what do I know, 61 year old not even two years into my first personal drum set.

    Yes, agree. I liked the MRV when I bought my MCT but the colors didn't wow me. I think this one does.

    From what I understand, the shells are made in the USA by a local shell maker. Pearl is in Nashville. Craviotto recently moved to Nashville and are famous for making solid shell drums. I think Pearl is doing all of the shell finishings like they do on other MCC drums, but putting the pieces together, my best guess is Craviotto shells. I have no confirmation on that, and we probably won't get one, but it makes sense.....

    I really don't understand the Eliminator change. It's like Eliminators, but with less choice? Wonder if they'll be significantly cheaper.

    I know, and agree. I'm also shocked that they wouldn't offer strap drive, my favourite Elim feature. No response yet as to whether the already available conversion pack is compatible either.

    Didn't know Craviotto moved to Nashville. Interesting theory for sure!

    Street price on a Single 'Eliminator Solo' will be about $100 less than the real Eliminator.
