I would personally go to the original! Don't get the new one! It looks GREAT from far away..... Up close you can see the sloppy seams. Get an original!

That's the "Tequila Sunrise" .... I never understood why Ludwig had the red on top ... when the grenadine lays "on the bottom" of the glass. Still ... $3K is way too much. You could piece that kit together for half that, $2K tops.

Harry's right: $3K for a Ludwig Vistalite is more than ridiculous--it's outrageous. You could have Precision Drum make you an acrylic kit for much less with very good quality. Plus, Precision uses RCI acrylic shells which, I believe, are welded and sealed--they do not have the support tab/strip of plastic holding the seam of the shell together like Ludwig's acrylic shells.

For $3K, I would demand at the least that the acrylic shells be cast and 100% pure with no seams like you can find on Sonor SQ2 acrylics and the like.
