    Question Availability of BCX special order? Al Percival?

    I'm looking to order my dream kit, a BCX in Lava Bubinga. I know they've been out of production for a couple of years now, but I'm guessing they keep stuff around awhile for custom orders for people that want to add to their kit, repairs, etc. Can I still special order these drums through my local Pearl dealer? I understand I'll have to wait for them, if they are available.

    Al, from the other day...

    "However as of 1.2.2020, non of the old Masters "X" series (MMX, MRX, MHX, BRX, BSX) components can be ordered. The factory will no longer accept any orders for these discontinued lines."

    BCX was a contemporary of MCX, not the older Masters series listed in Al's post, so I would say there is a chance.

    Don't know what sizes the OP is looking for, but GC has a used one for sale.

    Not my kit and I have no affiliation with it or the seller, just passing on the info.

    The MCX and BCX May still be available, but you won’t get the shell pack price. You’re going to have to pay for each drum a la carte at today’s prices. I’m guessing it will be about $1,000 more than the shell pack when it was last advertised. You can probably get a shell pack of something higher on the Pearl food chain for about what you’d pay for the BCX a la carte. Remember, the list price for a BCX was $2,500. You’re list price today will be about $3,500. Even if you get 50% off, you’re still going to pay about $1750. There are brand new BCX kits in other finishes being sold for $1,100. You’re really going to take a huge hit when you go to sell them.
    Also, you do know that the finish on the BCX is not a Bubinga veneer?

    I checked out that GC one the other day. However, it appears to have been taken down. They were the wrong sizes anyways. Looking for 18x20 bass, 10x12 mounted, and 12x14 mounted.

    Yeah, aware of all the above, including the finish. Unfortunately, there is nothing currently in the Pearl lineup that speaks to my tastes in size and finish that wouldn't be either Masterworks or Reference series. I just can't afford those. Maybe when I was single, but the accountant (my wife) would never approve that these days! I've been trying the last couple of years to talk her into letting me buy an $1800 Martin acoustic!

    BCX (Birch) drum components have been added to the list of individual drum components that are no longer available for purchase or special order. They have been discontinued.

    MCX (maple) drum components are still available but by special order only.

    Oh, it's a sad day! I always liked the MCX too, maybe Wine Red or the Quilted Bubinga Sunburst. Thanks for the response Al!

    If it has to be special ordered anyway, why not just get a Masterworks? Are you looking specifically for that BCX lugs?
