I am noticing that I am paying sooo much freaking more for cymbals and drum kits on this australian website (drummersparadise.com.au) in comparison to musiciansfriend.com.
For instance the zildgian k custom hybrid ride is around 350 on musiciansfriend.com as opposed to drummersparadise at 510....that's a big difference...same thing with the drum kits..for example they have the tama superstar hyperdrive six piece at 2199 whereas musiciansfriend has it at 1199.
Am I the only one who finds this bloody ridiculous lol?
