    Default Thinking of ordering a 16" floor tom

    I'm considering ordering a 16x14 Reference floor tom in Inca Gold Burst with black hardware to go with the rest of my kit.

    I've been quoted $1150 AUD ($855 USD) and 5-6 months to get a new one from Pearl. Is this a reasonable price?

    I've been looking for a second hand one, but they seem hard to come by. If has one or knows of one for sale, let me know

    Hi There,
    That is a fair price. I just bought 16x16 and 18x16 Reference floor toms in Scarlet Sparkle Burst on 1 April. They are $869.00 and $1026.00 respectively. I placed my order 1 day before the 2021 Price list was published, so I saved some money (just dumb luck in my favor . I was told 7-10 months wait time, most likely Christmas. I recommend ordering the drum. The waiting is terrible, but it will be totally worth it when those sweet drums arrive!

    Sounds exciting! Such a long wait, but would be good if it arrives for Christmas. What size drums are you playing with at the moment?

    It is a reasonable price for Reference Series drums.

    That sounds about right. Drums in NZ and Aussie are horrendously expensive. I guess shipping big wooden cylinders around the world costs a lot.
