Hey guys, just wanted to share how I got the Toontrack Superior Drummer for $100 at Guitar Center.

I received an email from ToonTrack yesterday that read
Superior Drummer 2.0 Crossgrade
$99.99 – SAVE $150

Really?! I read the fine print which read (in retail stores only)
Dealer participation may vary and is not guaranteed. Prices are subject to change and may vary between dealers and throughout the promotion
• Price savings are approximate and refer to current list prices at
• Promotion not valid in Toontrack's webshop (

So what are the "current list prices on the site, i wondered?
I went to the home page where there was a banner that read
Great Webshop holiday deals UP TO 40%
--> link to Superior Line

So I clicked the link, and the prices were in Euros
Superior Drummer 2.0 crossgrade
Regular price €189

I googled the conversion for 113, which came out to 153.21 US Dollars. Well, that's still a great deal in my books, so I logged in, added it to my cart and proceeded to check out... then all the prices were listed in US dollars - my cart read $249... what happened to the discount?

So I figured I'd do it the hard way. I called my local retailer (Guitar Center) and told them about the email I received. I got the reps email address and forwarded what I got from toontrack to him, and said, so will you honor this price, or at least a discount?

he called his supervisor, showed him the email I forwarded, then said "well, it came from ToonTrack, therefore it must be true. Come on down!

So I immediately drove down to GC, and paid $100 US for the cross-grade box smile.gif

I'll be installing it this evening to make sure it has all the working parts.

Just wanted to share - sometimes doing a little extra footwork can pay off in the end!


The more I practice, the more I wish I had time to practice!
