I just got a set of B hammers , bored, tapered and I believe it was $1500. I will say that the latest quality of hammers has risen significantly. Some light juice needed from notes 55 and up, and that was it. No shaping was required. The felt is a much denser felt that in years past and I was quite happy with the hammers. But the price gouging....that's a big nut to swallow.
