What's on your "wishlist"?

For me, it's this:


7.5mm thick solid maple shell. gorgeous glossy wood finish. The tone and responsiveness of this... *Homer Simpson drool*.

Just need to decide whether to get the 5" or 6.5" depth, but at £1,200, it ain't cheap.

What yours?

I smashed my 2021 wish list with my beautiful blue bell, but I am currently sniffing around British Drum Company for my 2022 wish list!! (y) :D

That's fancy!

I liked the BDC little segment in How It's Made the other day. Did make me want one....

1200? I don't know about the details, but thomann has quite a few cheaper Philharmonic models at a discount: https://www.thomann.de/gb/concert_snares.html?price-first=0&filter=true&manufacturer[]=Pearl
I hope that helps. :)

Thanks. I bought my current Philhamonic aluminium snare through Thomann. Because of Brexit they no longer charge VAT which, along with customs fees, is paid to the courier at the time of delivery instead. I did the sums and it works out roughly the price as everywhere else.

  • 12” side snare (like the Tama SLP oak) with adjustable Pearl S1030 stand;
  • New bass pedal....selling DW 9000 for either Yamaha or Tama pedal;
  • 15 or 16” high hats. Like to try some Istanbuls;
  • My new Pearl Decades in cobalt blue. Not sure this counts as they are already ordered and paid for.

I’ve just switched to the Tama Iron Cobra 900 Power Glide...a stunning pedal! (y) :D

To live long, healthy and prosper with more family and friends. Get to play drums in public instead of playing with myself. I added a 10 in tom to my Pearl Decade maple 13/16/24 and now I wish I had added an 18 in floor tom-so hmmmmmmm. Maybe I do have a wish list-I did have a hankering for a bop kit and a Gretsch but I passed that GAS.
Dang Ronzo you still haven't received your Pearl Decade in Cobalt blue? What kit sizes did you order?

No sir.
When I ordered I was told 6 months to get the shells in Canada. I was hoping it would be quicker but I am approaching the 3 month mark. I ordered 24/16/13/10 with virgin bass.
You had to mention that 18” floor tom eh?;):LOL:

I am still looking at something with a Gretsch badge. It won't be USA Customs or a Brooklyn or anything of that ilk, those are out of my spending comfort range.
If I had the money, I'd love to pick up the Maple/Walnut Catalina limited edition.

That 24 in kick is going to blow you away. It comes with a ported head because a solid head would probably blow out from the huge gush of air moving LOL. The low mass and relatively thin maple really sings too. I’ve tuned both 10 and 13 in toms to a large range using my pitch phone app and sound great- the 16 in doesn’t have as big a range -sounds better mid to low range. I don’t know why they aren’t more popular - my guess Asian rather than North American maple but these sound like maple drums to my ear. I’d love to mic my kit up rather than single mic Zoom. I bet it would sound awesome.
