Size:  107.7 KBI believe I’ve had my set around a year now and I still have the plastic protector wrapping that is around the high hat pedal and the kick pedal also some pearl tags hanging on the stands. Just wondering who else does this ? May I emphasize that there is no purpose to this, I just left it that way after I Purchase the set.

    It is just you. It’s... odd to say the least.

    Before I read the post, I saw the pictures and expected something about hating cold footboards when playing barefoot.

    Just you for sure. You’d probably get better grip on the floorboards if you took off the plastic. Drums are meant to be played, don’t worry about keeping them factory fresh.

    Makes me wonder if your cymbals are still in their bags and your drum heads are still in their cardboard sleeves. My brother in law pulls off the Minnie Pearl effect by keeping the price tags on his kit. Never understood it myself

    I've seen guys who keep their tags on the kit which I find super-weird. Never in my life have I seen the plastic still on the footboards.

    The crinkly noise from that plastic would drive me crazy.

    Although I have never left any plastic on my pedal (which appears to be quite durable), I did leave the DW stickers on two of my pedals just because I was lazy. I typically have leave the Pearl tags on the drums until I change the heads for the first time.

    Maybe I will take the stickers off tonight . . .

    Compared to a non-wrapped pedal, are you able to utilize different slide techniques on the bass drum pedal for multiple strokes?

    Yeah, take the plastic off so you can use your equipment properly, the way they were intended.

    We’re you one of those kids that left all his or her toys in the packaging to protect them? Not that that applies here as your pedal and hi hat stand will not become a collectors item or have a higher resale value if you decide to upgrade.

    It's just you. No one spreads their snare stand legs out that far.

    Not unless they’re rocking a 20x14 snare.
