Oh wow. Gorgeous. I love that finish. The reso head on the bass drum is a beautiful visual complement to the finish, too. It's gonna be a tough wait!

the seller says they are absolutely perfect. I got him to take 4400.00. That's a lot for a shell pack, but at the same time, I think its a very reasonable price for a DW exotic. I have seen 5 piece kits go for more than that.

And yes its gonna be a long week.

Wow that's a lot of dough. I would have waited till he lowered the price. I really don't think that kit would have moved until it got in the middle 3's. When someone buys exotic finishes, it's assumed that they will never get close to what they paid for it at selling time. I have an olive ash burl exotic veneer on my DW's. The grain on your kit is way nicer than mine. It is a beauty for sure. Congratulations, they're gorgeous.

Stunning kit! That's about what you should expect to pay for a top-of-the-line, exotic-finished kit.

Super Cool kit. I really like the burl. Beautiful.
Please don't put a cymbal stand in front of your bass drum like the previous owner did :)

Interesting, usually as soon as the paypal payment is approved the listing gets closed.

I have cases for the move. I wouldn't think of moving those drums without them.

BEAUTIFUL drums! It's unfortunate that so much of the finish on those rack toms is covered up by those STM mounts. I've heard of people switching out those mounts with RIMS so the audience can see the finish better. They deserve it with this kit...
