I just picked this up for only $60. 6 ply maple, 10 lug, quite nice and a good crack.
I found only a little info on Obelisk - a now defunct company in Canada, but some reviews were that they made quite nice drums, not sure where they made them.
Anybody got any info or experience with on Obelisk snares or drums?

A good friend of mine has a full kit of the Obelisk drums, and they are great sounding, well made drums. You know about as much as I do about the company, other than the rumor that they used Keller shells. I don't know if that is true or not, but that is what the friend who owns the kit told me.

That is still an excellent find for that price. Congrats!

thansk for the info. Hmm ....Keller shells. I guess other manufacturers like Gretsch use them too.
Wonder if made/assembled 'offshore? Not that it matters to me, just curious of that.
