    England is about the most expensive place to post from. a 50lb box (22kg in real money) could cost around $36 just to send domestic - internationally it'd be horrendous.

    That's a great drum. If memory serves me right, they were the same as the MHX, in as far as 4ply/5mm shells with 4ply/5mm rings, but the Ltd Ed Classics had mahogany rings rather than maple that the...
