Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.
So I want a 16" floor tom for my Prolite kit:
A. $900 USD to order from a dealer stateside
B. 578 Euros to order here in Germany (about $751)
C. I found a used 16x16 S Class Pro Maple floor tom.
So a 5mm all around shell vs 4mm + 2mm at the reinforcing rings for the Prolites. I don't think there will be much of a sound difference.
Now if I choose to be perfectionist I will buy me a set of the updated lugs, drill another set of holes and call it a day. The plan is to take high quality pictures of my kit (or use ones from Sonor's brochures) and have a high quality graphic vinyl printed. Will either do self adhesive or use a spray on type.
