Thanks for your feedback! I've posted a thread specifically for the suitcase kit here
if you'd like to see a few more pics and a vid.
We re-inforced the inside of the suitcase with some aluminium, and bolted the pearl mounts on to the suitcase that way. It's solid as a rock to play, and is heaps of fun! I had my first gig with it here in the Queen Street Mall, and it attracted alot of attention, i'm going to re-wrap the shells in red, and but a little port in the front for a mic, but it sounds pretty good for what it is!!
