  • To TD20 or not to TD20

    Guys

    I'm looking at giving my TD6 a brain upgrade to a TD20. I've gotten at price of $3200 AUD from Billy Hydes. Currently the RRP is $4K. Has anyone got a better price in Australia?

    The full kit has come down from $12K to $7.8K but the RRP on the brain has not followed suite ( bummer)
    :D

    Give Music Workshop a call on 03 5221 5844 and ask to speak to Daniel. Tell him you are from the vdrums.com forum and that Titania from SuperPuss sent you

      Thanks SuperPuss. He wasn't in but they still gave me a better price. Still haggling with the locals. Got it down to $2900 at Allens so far.
      :D

        That Allens price is amazing - not quite the $399 which was on offer momentarily on the website (long story), but very good considering the tight leash retailers are kept on in Australia. I should get you to do the haggling for me! Let us know if you manage anything better.
        Good luck.

                Good on you Engine Room - you won't be disappointed and you got a very good price for in Australia.

                They're still 1K cheaper in the U.S. (including freight...) but you wear the risk of no local warranty.

                  I thought about that but as it's a working kit I can claim on my tax ( depreciate over 5 years etc...thanks Kev)... I will when GAS strikes again look at getting pads from the US. Do you know of any stores that send (or even know of) down under.
                  :D

                    Interesting to hear that you can depreciate it over 5 years. . Do you work in the music business? I wonder if I can claim mine

                      The band plays every second Saturday at a Pub. To get paid we have to provide an invoice with our individual ABN numbers. So I usually earn about $2K a year. You can expense items up to $300 ( double check the amount) (per item) on parking, sticks etc. Big ticket items you can expense over it's expected working lifetime. I'm deprecating my TD6 kit and studio gear over 3.
                      Last year the Tax department owed me $1K but as the music income was under $40K etc..etc.. I end up with a tax credit to use if suddnely I become famous. The main point is that I did not have to pay any tax on the band income and it gives me a great excuse for GAS
