Re: My new Pearl!

My room is small and facing it against a wall takes up the least amount of space. The acoustics in the room are terrible, I get practically no low frequencies in my room. The house is also elevated...

Re: My new Pearl!

I would have to completely agree with you, I've always loved triple flanged hoops and are alot easier to tune but with the die cast hoops the tom sounds very controlled in good ways. It still...

Re: My new Pearl!

Thank you very much! I've always been tedious about my set ups. I like to make things real "tight" and comfortable if you know what I mean!

I think it's just the clear ambassadors. I just finished tuning the whole kit. The heads sound papery to me since I usually use coated emperors. This set and my previous one is made of maple. Might...

Re: Die Cast Hoops!

I dont think they dampen them "too" much. I feel like they "perfectly" dampen them to my taste. Letting the drum resonate warmly without those overtones. The only thing is that the hoop is "flatter"...

Re: Drum Wrap Removal

Thanks for the info. I also work at Guitar Center, I might just shoot the Pearl manufacturer a phone call to confirm or do so if things do not go as planned.
