This kit's conversion cost a total of $1,537.50. However, if you don't need a fancy module like the TD-12 used in this conversion, you could spend as low as $537. This is equivelant to:

(1) Roland TD-6S V-Tour Kit(Details)
(about 4) Roland KD-120 12" Kick Trigger
(1) TD-20 Module

So, by paying 1.5 grand, you're buying a 5-piece, 4-cymbal conversion kit (remember you still have the cost of a used acoustic drum kit), using a module just a step less than the top-of-the-line TD-20, which costs the whole conversion. Plus, you get to have fun with the conversion and experiment!

The cost breaks up like this:
