Anyone know where these went??? I want to get my hands on a set of these, but it seems they have dissapeared from the market...

Awesome drums. I'd love to purchase some if anyone has any or knows where I could get a set.

Hey man,

As far as I have heard they stopped making them.

My dream set would be a monster set of these. I know Bobby Rock was endorsed byt hem for sometime. Though I think they couldn't get anyone to even listen to them. Which is way too bad. If i get any amount of fame and they can do it I would commission them to make me a monster set and endorse them world wide.

The sound is like THUNDER, and the crack of the snare is incredible, I have one on my set. I wouldn't trade it for an entire Set of any other drum.


OK did some more digging and here is the scoop
The Radial Bridge design was created by inventor Steven Volpp and, until 2002, was manufactured and distributed through Peavey Electronics. The Radial Bridge drums are currently out of production and, with the exception of a few lingering kits here or there, unavailable.

Bummer, but you can check out the best set of them out there here

If you see em anywhere and can't buy them for yoruself let me know so I can get a grab at em'

Thanks!

I used to have a set in my studio, they were pretty nice- easy to work with. We eventually sold them. Haven't even seen a used kit now for a few years.

since i posted this topic ive found a few of the kits on Ebay. I dont really have the dough right now though.

They are my dream drums though. The drummer from EVE 6 swears by them, and i don't blame him. He has played his set of Radial pros forever. Even in his new band. Same kit for like over 10 years.

Great drums. I will. oh yes. I will own a set of radial pros some day.

A kit of PEAVY Radial Pro 500's sets in my apartment. It's the only kit I have. I have not heard any other kit out there that sounds any better. I got these used at Guitar Center in Grand Rapids Michigan. They had another kit of PEAVYs in there prior to this kit and it went fast. As soon as this kit came in, I had to snag it. Anyway, there are other kits out there, so keep your eyes open and a stash saved for just such an opportunity to come around. Hope you find your PEAVY's. Mine are a little loud, but I like them. I don't know why they quit making these drums. Does anyone know?
