I always thought that "minimum advertised pricing" meant that was the LEAST you would possibly pay and that it could be higher?
no way.. that means that is the lowest price shops can ADVERTISE the drums at. Most shops like to keep you in the dark on this subject, because understandably..... they want you to just pay the price and move on.. Very few are willing to come clean.
Lower and mid level kits are more difficult to get anywhere with on lower prices.. but upper mid level and higher are easier.
