The 10" was $225 plus around $100 for the shell. The 13" was $425, including shell cost (about $125-150 for the shell).

The drums will actually be shipping later this week...maybe tomorrow.

Just a note: my original idea was to have a 6"x13" maple ply snare with birdseye outer veneer. The shell arrived 7.5" deep and then the stain turned out blotchy and nothing seemed to remedy the problem, so I decided to get the stave shell instead. When I did that, I also decided to get the segment snare 'cuz I saw another one similar in design (with the wenge stripes...) I designed it to both tie in the various elements of the kit and to stand out as an individual piece. The tie-ins are the maple from the toms and bass drum, and birdseye from the stave shell. I kept the middle more blonde as an accent. The wenge stripes reflect my love of auto sports.
