Can't be sure, but the grommets appear to be aluminum(?)...the tom's grommet hole seems slightly enlarged.

One of the bass hoops has a piece of sparkle inlay and the other one has a strata inlay. ...

Re: A new pedal for gigs

I've had a single chain DW Turbo since 1984....pretty much indestructible. The Iron Cobra is very similar to the DW 5000...again, almost indestructible.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums
