Beautiful - that'll be a kit you can enjoy for a lifetime! (Or until you get the bug again for a new one!)As of last Friday my kit was drilled and awaiting hardware.
Karl Menzel, was aiming for an end of month timeframe as to having the kit fully ready, in a container, and on it's way to me. May be slightly delayed.
Nevertheless, here is a picture of the shells standing proud two weeks ago.
African Marble in high-gloss finish.
Pending updated pictures with kit complete, I'll post another pic or two in the coming days.

You're a true standup guy, Larry, and I appreciate your words in a really big way.Holy crap. They are drop dead gorgeous man. Nature at it's best. I like the light/dark thing a lot.
Stroker I am so happy for you man. You definitely earned these from all the good vibes that you bring.
With a kit like this, you truly won’t need anything else. Congratulations in advance! Best finish they make and I agree that for that investment, they better not be Alpi. I have an African marble snare, but will have to live vicariously through you for the rest of the kit.Many thanks, NC.
No more drum kit bugs for me, this will do it.
Many thanks, WB!Meh - drums are drums.
You know I'm kidding. I'll bet the wait is hard to take.
All the better when you finally have them to play (and ogle) though.
I'm hoping nothing has changed in the way Sonor boxes their drums, for last year when I received my Sonor SQ2 cast bronze snare drum from DCP, I couldn't have been happier with the way the drum was packed.And the initial inspection upon receipt of shipment. Especially if you see a nicked/dented box.
