Default Custom Drums

I thought I'd post for feedback a custom set my son and I made for gigging. I play a set of Yamaha Maple Custom Absolutes--we made these on a custom basis from some beautiful 6 ply Keller shells, and I have to say they sound better than the Yamahas.

Hope you enjoy--pics and a sound sample (not the greatest quality, made on a Zoom recorder with some compression, but gives an idea). Would love any feedback.

Sound Sample here:

Thanks!

Nice kit there, lovely - very envious.

Anyway, what is it like having a 16" tom to the left of your snare?

Oh dear...Insane looking set.
How much did it cost to put that thing together in the end, if you don't mind me asking?

Ha! Insane as in a good way? So you'd like dollar figures, eh?

I'll share, but only after I hear guesses. I will say this, the sound is in my opinion higher quality than my Maple Custom Absolutes, which before these were my favorite sounding drums.

Thanks for the compliments--it was indeed a very satisfying project, to the point where we may decide to build a few for sale to friends. Lots of fun, and nice to do with your drummer son (who, by the way, is a whole lot better player than the old guy).

Sweet looking kit! Did you run into any problems that you didn't foresee when putting it together?

Hmmmm. Without the rack, or snare and superfluous hardware, and depending on the dimensions I would guess around 2500 USD... Am I close?

Shells, Wrap, Heads, Drilling, Lugs..... Yeah,
