Ten. Here's a general spec page for the Archetype series. Only difference is they're using Trick throw offs instead of Dunnett R7's now. Another FYI is that while they say their shells are "ultra thin" they're actually 6.35mm in the middle and 12.7mm at the reinforcement rings which is more like a medium maple in the middle of the shell and super heavy at the re-rings.Eight lugs or ten?
Yes. A Yamaha AHM kit.For this one? https://www.drummerworld.com/forums...ur-four-piece-kits.45195/page-55#post-1846103
If you said what that cased up kit was, I missed it.
I, too, always go for ten-lug snares. Eight lugs can make sense if you lean toward an open sound, but I prefer the fine-tuning advantages of ten lugs. Maybe it's my imagination, but the two extra lugs seem to offer more precision.Ten. Here's a general spec page for the Archetype series.

They'll make just about anything you can dream up. Different woods/finishes. Check out the gallery page here......
Now this is the kind of thing that makes me stop into thrift stores from time to time. I would love a marimba and own a small xylophone instead. Used to play the marimba in HS jazz ensemble, such a cool percussive instrument. I remember playing a marimba solo to Greensleeves at the Christmas concert circa 1983. Seems like it was electric with pedals and dampeners that would open or close a spinning doohickey...but that could just be a dream..I just picked up one of these at a thrift store, partly to keep it away from indelicate attention, but mainly because the price was so absurdly low it would have been wrong to not buy it- in fact, when I relayed the price to my other half, I was told to get it.

Phornographic indeed! Do you have any shots with both the 24/14/16/18 you got three years ago and the new find? That I imagine is a fabulous looking/sounding kit. Nice audio gear btw.Picked them up yesterday. 18x14, 12x8, 14x14. Early 70s. Walnut. Exact color match to the 24/14/16/18 I got three years ago. Just got new coated over clear Ambassadors, coated ambassador kick batter, fiberskyn front, and Ludwig Atlas spurs since the guy couldn't find both of the originals. Fine by me, I have Atlas spurs on the 24, so I'm going to make this 18 match. It's getting pretty pornographic in my garage these days...

The toms have a roundover edge, but the bass drum has the modern inward-facing 30* edge. Sounds really super good.
I've had experience with 3 volkswagons in my life:I was waiting for someone to post a VW. Not the thing I purchased, but a slick vehicle for sure.
I'm more of the beetle w an ej kinda guy ?
