well, the kit itself (no hardware/cymbals/heads) was only about £3800 (or approx. $6800 canadian).
Hardware was approx. £850 (or $1500 Canadian). that rack+ cymbal arms was not cheap...
and cymbals were £1000 ($1800 Canadian). for a grand total of £5700 ($10000 Canadian).
wow. i never realized how much it was till now.
lol I'm not loaded, I'm 17 (I was 15 when i purchased the kit) and live at home, so i have very few living expenses, so all the money i saved from working could go towards my drums. then over a year later i purchased the rack, and for the last few years I've been collecting my assortment of cymbals. I don't think I would of appreciated my kit as much if i had purchased everything at once.
oh and i almost forgot, my awesome Dad, (as my christmas present) took care of the down payment. words cannot express how much i love him! I'm really truly grateful to have such a loving supporting Father.
