Yup. I just saw it for $849.00 from Sweetwater. Yeah, that would be a pass from me. As Jack mentioned, you can get a Noonan for less money, which Ash played for years, and this drum is based on. Also, there's quite a few excellent stave builders in North America who can build you one for par, or less, and you'll have more choices on finishes, hardware, etc. IMO, if you want this type of drum, for that sound, stave is the way to go.
Gretsch costs 1079€ in Europe. That's equivalent of 1237$. LOL.
Noonan version seems to cost 539£/633€/723$.
