Morgan Rose Unveils New Masters MCX Masterpiece

Rock drumming legend, Morgan Rose, has unveiled his latest Pearl masterpiece for the upcoming and first Sevendust tour of 2015.  The kit, a Masters MCX in Shamrock Green lacquer, consists of Morgan’s signature 2-up, 2-down setup, with a 20” gong drum serving as a third floor tom, matching 6x12 and 6x15 Rocket Toms, a matching 10x6 popcorn snare drum, dueling 20x18 bass drums, and is centered by a 14x8 Hybrid Exotic snare drum.  The truly special aspect of Morgan Rose’s new Masters MCX setup is the custom and highly complex ICON Rack System designed by Morgan’s tech, Johnny Fantozzi.  In regards to the design of this kit, Johnny told Pearl:

"After weeks of brainstorming and picking apart Morgan's previous setups, I was able to come up with a design that I am extremely stoked about. Taking the "low-rider" rack design that was originally executed by Morgan's last tech Poochie (who I had the pleasure of learning from) and putting my own spin on it… Adding different components and streamlining the look to create this new kit. Huge thanks to Kevin and the rest of the Pearl Family for helping me make this kit a reality!"

Morgan Rose will be unveiling this kit on Sevendust’s upcoming fall tour, which comes in support of the band’s forthcoming and tenth studio album.  This trek is currently scheduled to kick off at Carroll Park in Baltimore, MD, on September 19th, and will make its way around North America for the following 5 weeks before the concluding date at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, in Hampton Beach, NH, on October 23rd.  Ticketing information for this must-see tour can be found at
