I think DW had a "signature kit" that you could buy for $30,000, but the figure that I saw at one point in a music magazine put the whole shebang (everything from the riser up including drums, cymbals, electronics, and mics) at over $75,000. I don't remember where I read that, though.

I seem to remember a site selling a R30 kit or 47,000$ (without cymbals?)

Which I don't know about you guys, but that's actually a lot cheaper than I was expecting.

That sounds about right.

Neil's kit is highly customized, and all that customization would be very expensive to duplicate.

I was upset that Neil's kit has the stands with no legs that screw into the riser and the replica kit did not. It really should have been EXACT!
