Great! I look forward to your dry wit onslaughtYou *&$%(#*!
It's ok, I'll get my vengeance. I'll be seeing you fairly soon...
In-Tense 3 piece shell set costs £3,800 (about $6,300USD).Wow, even with a related discount?
How unaffordable are these GURU drum$ anyway?
Completely understood, accepted, & welcome.PLUS my sq2 sounds fantastic and I spent almost 8 years saving up money! I'm not gonna sell it for anything
In-Tense is fundamentally different to the Craviotto construction in many ways. Just because they're both steam bent shells, does not make them comparable. The shell construction method is very different indeed. I wouldn't normally raise this, but as you have, we're supplying two customers with In-Tense kits in the coming weeks. Both of them have sold their Craviotto kits to get an In-Tense kit. That's not a negative reflection on Craviotto (who, IMHO make great drums), it's a reflection of the customer's personal preferences.I have yet to see an SQ2 lose to pretty much anything. A total exception with regard to ply construction.
A Craviotto addict on another board just happened upon an SQ2.. Now is in the process of selling his Craviottos.
Not going to happen. I'm most against any form of negative marketing by those who have a vested interest in the outcome. If someone independent wants to do that, it's fine. if someone wants to make that comparison for themselves, they're welcome to bring whatever drums they wish to our demo room, & A-B them all day long.
Thanks IanExcellent video!
Really nice drums!
Wow, high praise indeedYes, sir. They are the most incredible drums I've ever heard.
(and I ain't just whistling Dixie)
Thanks Bo, I'm glad you like the way we present the drums. It's as honest as we can manage, & done very quickly too. I'm pleased with the resultsVery nice! Great playing and a great representation of what the kit sounds like! Nice job with those drums Guru-folks!
We have the artist shirts that David is wearing in the video. Not cheap though. We're planning on some screen printed Tshirts that will be more affordable.Very nice representation of a fabulous sounding drum set Andy. My only question is how can one get a Guru shirt? LOL
Ah, sorry, my bad. I jumped to conclusions. Glad to hear of the mad Ninja skills. Perhaps you can guest on the next Beatloaf series of videos? I had to, & compared to the other guys, I can't play for s86%t!Just for future reference, Im not THAT Florian....but I do play Sonor and I do have mad Ninja skills on the drums.
Thank you so much Abe. It means a lot to me that you chimed in here...
Andy, great to see the Guru story continue onwards and upwards. These drums sound amazing!
Lots of photo's in David's interview/article coming up in Drummer magazine. Do you want me to order 100 copies for youSwoon!
(I was tempted to say "What drums?")
I like the middle tom best, too, but I also enjoyed the cheeky "piping" sound from the little one. And I love that pale, palomino colour.
Looking forward to the article! I do hope there are lots of photos.
Indeed, and if you ask Andy about what it costs them to make these drums... The price is really fair!It's not a typo. It's a reflection of the holistic process that Guru goes through to create these instruments that are, in my opinion, some of the finest drums that exist.
6300.00 for a 3 piece? that has to be a typo.

I won't bore everyone by listing all the exceptional costs that go into these instruments, but I will pull out a few examples. We're a zero compromise creator of drums. In basic terms, that means if it makes a difference to the sound, we do it. Not completely irrespective of cost, but cost is lower down the list compared to other considerations.Indeed, and if you ask Andy about what it costs them to make these drums...
