The making of Neil Peart's R30 kit...

thats really cool. i dont like the finish that much, but its an amazing kit. wonder how much a replica kit would cost lol.


New member
huh, I'd never seen that video before - very cool! Thanks for posting

the price was a little steep at first, esp considering it's only half his kit really...
but I've heard the GCs came off the $30 asking price recently.
Not sure if they have many left- maybe that prompted them to lower the price.

thats nifty. i wish they'd let me in their factory and just tell me i can make whatever i want. that would be AWESOME!!!

Very interesting - that was pretty much what I saw when I was there - not Neil's kit being built, but the assembly process.

The GC set is a scaled down kit if you start counting drums and it also leaves out the electionics he uses for 30K I could build exact replica and have about 10K left over. DW and GC just really screw people sometimes. It really just makes me sick.

so how much did Neil pay if anything?
i'm guessing nothing... lucky b*** - i'm sure dw drums wouldn't mind giving him the kit if it enhances publicity for their name!

well i guess the guy deserves a kit like that though. 8)

Not sure how much he paid for them, but the full kit cost around $70,000 from what Lorne (his drum tech) was telling me when I met the guy.
