Neil Peart R30 commemorative drum kit replicaAs was reported last month, Guitar Center has teamed up with Drum Workshop and Sabian cymbals to produce thirty limited edition replicas of the drumkit Neil Peart used during the R30 tour. Details about the kits were recently released and are spelled out in this Harmony Central article:

... Each drum is made from hand-selected maple wood with an inner ply of curly maple, while the finish is an extreme custom lacquer process that involves hologram appliques of icons (inspired by Keith Moon's "Pictures of Lily" kit) representing many of RUSH's most famous recordings and tours.

Each Black Mirra Flake panel is lined with red pin striping and the entire kit including hardware and pedals are custom plated in rich 24-carat gold. The R30 kit also includes a full complement of Neil's SABIAN Paragon cymbals, which he worked closely with SABIAN to develop.

The kit comes complete with 30 pairs of Pro-Mark Neil Peart Commemorative Drum Sticks, an exclusive DVD titled The Making of the R30 Drumkit, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by Neil Peart. ...

The kits will be made available from Guitar Center at 8AM on October 30th and will cost $30,000. A complete parts list, example of the certificate of authenticity and a 360 degree view of the kit can also be seen at the Guitar Center website here. If anyone feels like buying me one of these just let me know and I'll send you my shipping address. :)
