Guess who just bought a new to me kit :)

Just picked up a MINT Pearl Reference Pure. I have had an MCX maple for years and a second kit that has been swapped out a few times. I think this one is here to stay. The heads need a changing but I can tell already these things have really nice tone.

Any Reference guys here? What are your favorite head choices? Thinking of doing G2's over G1's as I normally do, but tempted to see what others have tried with results.

will add photos when it's set up.

The Reference is 10,12,16,22. I have a 7 piece MCX in 8,10,12,14,16,20 and I rarely use the 8 or one of the floor toms. It's super fun to have them all set up, but not practical for gigging/recording as I don't have the mics/inputs. Years back I owned a 10 piece kit which was even more intense. Over the years I have gone smaller with my second kit and was playing a Sonor Bop kit for quite a while that had an 18 inch kick. I sold that and have been having a ton of fun on a Ludwig Breakbeats kit. Going from a 16 in bass drum to a 22 is unreal. That bass drum is a cannon.

I like the coated Amb over Clear Amb with the Pures.
I posted my favorite tunings on the other board where you were asking about it.

Nice drums. The Fat Tone hoops are neat too. And the Pure is the one that varies the shell layup according to the size of the drum:

Congrats.
