    Thanks To both of you. Doug is sending me the shorter shank.

    Hi Mike.

    The original setup I purchased was too bright. Doug then sent me the 102 rim with both I and J cups, both with short receivers. The I cup seems to be the best compromise. Nice sound and easier in the upper range than the Wick 4X.

    Hi Mike,

    Glad it's working out for you. Doug makes good pieces.
