    Default Pearl Rocket Toms

    Anyone out there playing Pearl Rocket Toms? it is my understanding they are made of aluminum, can anyone give me an idea as to the thickness of the aluminum tubing they are using?

    Yes, i play them and yes they’re aluminum. Unsure of the thickness but they’re definitely thinner than wood drum shells.

    I'm going to confabulate, and guess that the shells are 1.5 or 2mm thick. I don't have them in front of me, but I used to own them. The shells are thin, but thick enough to be rigid and durable.

    No worries. I just felt an overwhelming sense of deja Vu!
