Default Kansas City Drum Works, USA

Has anybody heard of these drums? The shells are nice, wrap is so so, hardware looks a little weak. I've had these in storage for some time and I am thinking of getting rid of them, just not sure how desired they are. Any thoughts, recommendations?

Being from KC I can say they are GREAT custom drums.Ive played a KCDW snare before,it was awesome.The one that can tell you more about em is drummer Jim Riley.He was a drum builder for KCDW before he got the gig with country group Rascal Flatts

Keller shells with Pearl Hardware most likely.

I've never understood why some "custom" drums were made with the most generic looking lugs and mounts.
