That makes sense, the "minimum" referring to what the seller can advertise rather than what the customer will pay. Suppose you found a good dealer and submitted the specs for your SQ2 with a MAP of 12k, realistically, how much off of that price could you expect percentage wise?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.
