Yeah, they are expensive. They are also really exceptional drums. I had the pleasure of playing a kit last year and I was really impressed with the tone of the drums. There are a lot of really great drums on the market for less money, but these seem like drums that can justify an elevated price. I think of them as being in the Sonor Designer price range and they are a far superior drum so I can see the value. Out of my price range for sure!

I don't doubt the quality, they look like amazing drums but $957.00 for a snare? I did the quote for a bass drum and a 22x24 bass drum starts out at $2000. So for a bass drum and snare alone I'm sitting at $3000.00.
