Thankyou!!

like you wouldn't believe, thanx to tama's die cast hoops it's a breeze to tune; super responsive, nice and stiff (which prevents it from warping) and so on.

Wow that's like what? £5000 or something? Amazing kit mate you must be loaded dude.
well, the kit itself (no hardware/cymbals/heads) was only about £3800 (or approx. $6800 canadian).

Hardware was approx. £850 (or $1500 Canadian). that rack+ cymbal arms was not cheap...

and cymbals were £1000 ($1800 Canadian). for a grand total of £5700 ($10000 Canadian).

wow. i never realized how much it was till now.

lol I'm not loaded, I'm 17 (I was 15 when i purchased the kit) and live at home, so i have very few living expenses, so all the money i saved from working could go towards my drums. then over a year later i purchased the rack, and for the last few years I've been collecting my assortment of cymbals. I don't think I would of appreciated my kit as much if i had purchased everything at once.

oh and i almost forgot, my awesome Dad, (as my christmas present) took care of the down payment. words cannot express how much i love him! I'm really truly grateful to have such a loving supporting Father.

Wow! Congratulations. I'm sure having such an special kit makes it an absolute joy to practise. If you're 17 and you've already had the kit for 2 years, I'm scared to think how far all that practising will take you in 2 more. Thomas Pridgen in no time. Keep rocking man.

yeah well stuff is cheaper over there. It was about 4.5 on thomann, and that was before the pound crash! Also wow 17 mate you're so lucky to have that stuff, and i'm glad to hear you worked for it too, that's really impressive because obviously most teenagers (EH included) would save up like £50 and spend it on a load of crap lol.
