    Titanium does not have to be thin, it's a metal and can be cast to any shape, I would have thought anyway.

    Just my opinion, the kit does look amazing regardless. I love the finish.

    What's the weight like?
    I play Panda Percussion and Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals with negligible talent.

    At any time let x be the number of kits I own, then x+1 is the number of kits I want.

    Cost must be no object for you.

    I agree, the raw finish has a great natural look to it. Thanks.

    EDIT: The weight is super light.

    yeah, titanium could be watever form you'd like, any thickness. Part of Dunnett's philosophy is ultra thin, so that's why these are really thin I'd assume

    Thanks y'all. GMS is one of the 2 custom companies, along with N&C, that started this trend of custom drums back when it meant boutique.

    I blame that partially on artist like myself. In my case, I am artist that should be touring more and helping the exposure. The last 2 years I have been playing the waiting game more than on the road like I used to.

    Come over. You can hit the beach while you're at it. I invited this entire forum last year over for a meal & jam and the only my non PDF friends showed. Let me know as this thing will never be played live.
