  • The $1000 Custom DW Kit

    The local GC screwed up a custom order and got the wrong finish. I just picked up their mistake for $1000.

        Wow!!!

        You Dog !!
        My color too!!
        Fantastic snatch.
        Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy(all the guys got together to thank you for putting on Future Drum !)

        PS: Michael, here's a shot of Jo Jo Mayer @ a master clinic I attended...I've got some good shots & 3 short videos if you are interested in seeing them. Great guy, & an unbelievable drummer in person. Check him out if you get the chance.

        Best to all, AlienFunk

            Thats a killer kit Michael, and I love the color.
            I can't believe someone would pass on that 'mistake'...

            Good for you though!

                The mistake was that it was a satin finish instead of a laquer finish. GC has to reorder the proper finish for the customer. So this kit sat in the showroom for a year. They needed to make room for some Pacific kits, so voila.

                This was the exact same configuration I was looking for. I was about to drop some coin on a Mapex Saturn Studio when this turned up.

                I know they have a few more DW kits in the back, I will check if they are selling those also.

                And AF, bring on the Jo-Jo, He is a monster.

                            Aww, you would just convert it to eDrums.
                            Wait.... that's not such a bad idea!
