    Thanks for clarifying. That is great to know.
    Unfortunately, Al cannot help as I am not in the US where he can provide customer service. The closest Pearl branch would be Pearl Europe, and being that the series is now discontinued, the only solution seems to be some wood filler for the crack and apertures, and perhaps wood putty for the scarf seams.

    It would be useful to hear a Pearl representative’s* solution for this matter to know if there is a better solution.

    For my future reference, would you kindly tell me about your physical experiences over the years? How many Pearl drums(sets) have you had? Have you experienced any such issues if you have closely inspected the shells?

    I believe - if I am not mistaken - it was in the range of $99-$109 inclusive of the ISS* Mount, TH-88S/B, and ADP-20.

    I misunderstood your question. I was referring to the 8”.

    I only have 12, 10, and 8 toms, all purchased separately. The 8 and 12 were purchased new, the 10 used.

    Does this information help?

    See if you can get some wood glue into that crack.
    Let it set up then use some putty to fill the other
    places that need it. Once it’s dry give it a lite sanding.
    Thin out the glue if you can’t get it into the crack. Pretty
    straight forward repair. Best of luck and post pictures.

    Thanks for the detailed and easy to follow instructions, Eric.
    Will give it a shot once I can acquire the materials and apply the fix given current circumstances.

    You are in Europe but you bought the drums from Musician's Friend in the US? How/who shipped them to Europe?

    My experience.......I've owned several Pearl drumsets since the mid 90's, and have owned several from most brands. Quality is usually top notch, but I have seen sets with 'bad' plies. No manufacturer has 100% QC aside from the true 'custom' shops, but those drums cost in the thousands. I'd say Pearl is a fine brand, even their least expensive sets.
