    Fifteen holes in my cover, in a 3 by 5 pattern. Used a Dewalt drill and it sounds excellent.

    Re: Drilled my pearl!

    I have ordered 3 covers (2 extended and 1 OEM, which should be on its way) with holes. I don't wanna void my warranty in any other way since, with my history of BB's, I will probably be replacing it soon due to some other defect LOL (I still love BB though).

    Re: Drilled my pearl!

    Ok after starting this thread I am all self-conscious now with my boring drill pattern I think it's back to drilling after work today...too bad I was a dummy and put my skin on before drilling...*sigh*

    (boy do I wish I had a drill bit smaller than 1/16")

    drilled mine from the front so I could see how the end result was coming, also used a small piece of finished maple to stabilize it on. You have to be careful not to let the bit drill into the plastic too fast.

    Re: Drilled my pearl!

    ok so i figured a way to drill a hole without drilling a hole haha. if you have a case just or skin or whatever just remove the back door and drill the skin or case and leave the door off..

    ~via BBhose (wap.pinstack.com)~for those who want to see how the difference is, yet taking your cover off and play music. I'm sure that will give you a good idea

    for me its a little easier. im a diamond setter apprentice so i used a amall bearing 012, or 010 or a round 010...it works ...i know it would be difficult to find since its a diamond setter tool but hey thats the way i did it ..
