Determining the shell thickness, bearing edge, weighted vs. non weighted lugs, which version of YESS, inner or outer bead on the snare drums, shell composition, depth......it was all done one step at a time. And it's no like Steve was just sitting at home waiting for the next batch of prototypes to show up. We had to get him when we could. This meant sometimes shipping protos to NY, PHX, some times he could come to Burbank.
On a side note, are you discontinuing the PHX line?
Absolutely not. PHX is still in production in Hamamatsu.
