Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Yeah, that's where I found the tourquoise piece, in his scrap pile. He has some crazy nice custom wraps to, and can pretty much make the custom wrap of your dreams, but man, you pay for them!

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Thanks, I think I've rung every bit of good out of this kit, and it's been a great ride and a lot of fun. This kit can gig now, I'm sure.

While the red glitter wrap is good on this kit, I saw...

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

I saw that you were a big proponent of redoing the edges of the MIJ kits and had done several with great results, so I...

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

So, I drove up to Precision early this morning, 89 miles from Queens, and met up with George, one of the owners and the guy that does most of the work. Super nice guy, and he took me and my kit right...

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Yeah, can't wait to get them done. I'm going for a stock round rollover, unless he talks me into something else. I like the sound of the drums as they are, but they can sound a little wonky at times....

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Your supposed to talk me out of it Bob! LOL!

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

OK, so I'm within a couple of days of driving my MIJ Norma kit up to Precision Drums to have the edges re-cut.

I've done a lot of research, and I can't find any good reason not have them done....

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

I don't think it can hurt any to do it. I don't think originality matters in your case, which can be a consideration on a more expensive kit. I sometimes think about having my MIJ edges done. I'm...
