The cymbals alone would be likely to cost around £2,500, I wouldn't hold your breath :/
#3
so like, $300 total?

Hehehe not by a long way. Cymbals at least $3000 (assuming you're buying them new), you could probably half that if you found all the stuff used.

That kit has been discontinued, but the nearest Yamaha do now is at least £1800 (~$3000) here in the UK for a 4-piece. So probably at least $6000 for the drums.

So, that comes to $9000 -ish, and that's without stands, pedals etc.

Way too much.

Is this guy a troll or...?

But yes, I'd say this is nearly the pinnacle of what you could get. Top-of-the-line kit, the same with the cymbals. I'd be very happy if someone bought this for me, although I probably wouldn't even use half of it

I have about 10 thousand (US) in my Pearl Masters Custom.

Sizes: 8-10-12-13-14-16 (2)24" kick drums.

I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

Have you ever even played on a large kit before?

Personally, I hate them. 95% of the people that owns kits this large don't even use half of it and, if you're not a professional in a big band, it just makes you look dumb IMO.

Give me a 4 or 5 piece, hi-hat, 2 crashes, a ride and a china and I'm good to go. Always makes me laugh when I see a drummer on stage with a local band that has this giant set. I would kill myself if I had to lug that thing around every show. Screw that.

Pah, amateur! Kick, snare and a 20" crash is enough for me

It's workable, although the smallest I've gigged with has been that + hi hat and floor tom. I find that you can substitute the closed hi-hat with rim clicks, and open hi hat by riding on the crash (or crashing it).

I first tried it after seeing these guys live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3Bmwtx2KBY, he makes a huge f*cking racket on a tiny kit haha

I dunno, i think I'd rather listen to all that on a hi-hat, cause you can do more intricate work up top to make the beats sound more diverse. I really like the music, but I got bored of the drum sound about 2 minutes in
