They don't appear to be out on the market yet. I wonder if they'll be priced to compete with the Black Beauty and also, how different they will sound from each other. I like the floating snare rail.

Used classic Dyna's in very good to great condition are $300 to $500.
DW True Sonics are $600.
$800 is pushing it.

Not with wood shells. And yes, I know the re-issue shell is different from the original. My reissue still plays like a Dyna-Sonic, and its a perfect sonic match for my Ludwig Legacy Maples. In fact, it knocked my LB416BT Black Beauty off the snare stand and into its case.

Totally worth $800.

We're talking new brass metal Dyna's.
I own a Big R I paid about $250 for including new bottom snare hoop and cradle.

I think the pricing is right in the sweet spot for these drums. I was expecting them to cost more, honestly. I have the 6.5x14 Gold Glitter Lacquer wood one and it's a GREAT drum. Shockingly sensitive, but not choking. The big question is whether to get the 6.5x14 or 8x14! I want them both!!!

I was able to play them @NAMM. Was not impressed. Imho they could of done a better job on the shells.
What was it specifically that you didn't like? I am curious because I was thinking about ordering one, but I haven't seen, played, or held one in my hands yet. I think they did a fabulous job with the wood version.

Hi Treviso1, I was hoping for a thicker, heavier shell like the old COB's. I'm pretty sure the shells are made in Taiwan. I'd get a Porkpie brass & install the bridge system, save some money.

I get it. The one thing they should do is make sure the specs of the brass shell match the old ones...having a lightweight shell would disappoint me too.

Nice! That's a good looking drum. It's expensive but it is what it is. If someone likes it and can afford it then it's worth the price for them.

It's so funny, I had a real COB dyna in 1969 and NOBODY wanted the wood ones. They cost $110 bucks back then, which was a lot of money considering a Supra cost about $60. I believe the COB and the wood were the same price. If only I'd known. :(
