The way the pad is designed..you don't need rims. The size of the rubber and the size of the drumhead aren't exactly the same..the drums' sizes on the pad are smaller. The playing areas are set up so that if you hit them..you would be on the drum. I don't know anything about the laminates though.

If my explanation sucked someone else on here can explain it very well..Bill I think

You're right Kaitou. Rims are cool and look fancy, but are unnecessary on tenor pads.

The way Bill and Chris designed them is that if you hit wood, you'd hit rim.

This is the reason I like my ProLogix pad. The "rims" are rubber, so when you hit them, it just stops the stick. They're not intrusive otherwise. I've hit my rims probably more than they would have liked to have been hit, and they're still in great shape.

Look at me bringing this thread back after 4 years. Anyways, I have a question for anyone who has experience with either the Pearl Championship or CarbonCore drums, preferably both. I'd like to know what the differences from a user standpoint are. I know there's an inner carbon ply, but what difference does that actually make in terms of sound and weight, relative to the standard Championship drums?

From the players perspective, you won't feel much difference. Weight is negligible as both shells are 6-ply maple shells. The sound ion the CarbonCore is going to project better than the Championship series, but again, the player won't really hear much of that.

Good to know. I'm looking more for a drum with which to practice for myself and use for solo performance, rather than in a drumline and outdoor performance setting, so this is very helpful

If it's for personal use, go with the cheaper drum. Find a good used one online and buy that.
