    Man, this kit is my nemesis. I found one at the Guitar Center in Atlanta a few years back. 7pc kit, same finish, $750. I was in college and I put the money down, but then decided I needed the money more than the drums. I've always regretted it.

    Beautiful kit, man!

    Thanks. I wonder how many are left out there that haven't been trashed since the late 90's. I know there can't be too many. They were/are pro-level. About twice the price of a Stage Custom, but much more affordable than a Recording or Maple custom. These have the 6 ply snare/toms, and 8 ply bass. Larry Mullen Jr. went to town on these on.

    I'd like to add a 16" so I can get a double tom stand and then free up the stand that has the 14" and 20" crash on it. That way I'll be able to position it better. There's other options too though...
