It seems Tama has downsized their Gong Drum production, probably due to their move to China a few years ago.
You can only order one with a Bubinga shell in Piano Black...no other options.
If you wanted any other finishes you are out of luck, also they won't make one in Maple anymore either.
The Bubinga Gong Drum was a US retail price of about $1,399.00, depending on where you purchase it, it could be higher.

It is sorry to see a company like Tama downsize a drum they have offered since 1978, and they are the only company
that makes this unique drum.
Other drum companies try to imitate it, like Pearl, DW and a few others, but only Tama has a patent on their unique lug
design that allows a 22" head to sit on a 20" shell..making it a Gong Drum.

Maybe this will change in the future, but for now this is the only thing they offer in the U.S. market, Japan may be different.
