Can anyone confirm if the current Starclassic die-cast hoops/mounts (one piece in design with die-cast mount arc that bends around lugs--see attached picture) that are found on Starclassic Bubingas, Maples, and B/B kits would work on Pearl Masters shells (see attached picture of SSC lugs)? I know plenty of players have used Pearl's Opti-mounts on other kits--an alternative to RIMS system--but I am wondering if the Starclassic mounts/hoops would work on Pearl or even other shells?
The only qualifying factor I can foresee is the lug design and lug/tension rod spacing, but in the case of Pearl Masters kits or even the new SSC (session custom) kits, it seems like the Starclassic mounts would fit?
I would like to use the SC mount/hoops because I think they'll give more freeplay movement and resonance to the toms than the Opti-mount system.
Thanks for any input!
