Following the philosophy of the CoreLine, the CLblack comes with a standard comfort tuning rim and an EdlauerSelect skin.
I am sure these universal features will keep you happy for a long time. I consider it important to take the time to try out as many different drums as possible first to find out what your favourite sound and feel is, and to then get the combination of tuning rim and skin that’s best for you.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense to start experimenting straight away.
Take your time, play the CLblack as it is, give it time, see how the drum improves, and how your playing improves and changes.
And then, once you know exactly what you like, get the skin and tuning rim you like. Usually, the delivery times for extra tuning rims and skins are very short – mostly not longer than 4 weeks.
So please don’t rush it - take your time.
