That hardware was done for that kit only. For $30,000.00 you too can have it.

The gold hardware is cool but you can also custom make a Dw drums set and put the gold hardware on it but it cost a shit load of money

the only bad part about gold hardware is that gold is a very soft metal, so it wouldnt last you very long. you will very easily dent and scratch it so i would only get it if you were rich as shit

You could send your hardware out for a metalic gold powdercoating job for a lot less than getting actual plating. It would be far more durable as well.

You can also have Titanium Nitride (PVD) done on Hardware, this is the same process that Kohler, Moen and Delta Faucet uses for the Buy it For Life Finish. I have worked with DW on some really cool finishes this past year. I just join this forum so I'm not sure how to post pictures or I would post some hardware from Jim Keltner's set I work on with DW..

The plating on the Peart kit was actual 10 karat. Gold colored powder coating would definately be cheaper. The first time I saw actual gold plating on hardware was Charlie watts ( rolling stones) for the Steel Wheels tour. There was a 5 star in Annapolis MD (Master Musicians) where I used to take lessons that did it for him. I was fortunate enough to see the kit before they got it back to him...I know it is pretty damn expensive.
I noticed Joey Jordisons new set up is gleaming with gold as well....don't know if that is actual gold or powder coat.
