I know people are going to A-B the new RCs to these ones to death, and I think it's unfair. I liken it to getting a Toyota from Japan vs. one assembled in the US. It's still a Toyota, and you wouldn't know the difference if I didn't tell you there was one. Take each drum line for what it is. The video demos of the new RCs that I've seen, the drums sound fine (with one exception that I've noted in a different thread). It's not like these drums need to be hyped anymore, they have 40 years in the drum community and stand as a bar for other lines and brands to match and perhaps even raise their game. The new RCs will be just fine.

An update on these drums.

 

They are still available. Lots of interest, but shipping has proven to be a stumbling block. Local pickup seems to be the only reasonable option. I'd be willing to meet someone part way.

 

Two purchase options:

 

1) Drums and cases: $2500 USD

2) Drums only: $2300 USD

 

I'm polite and will respond to all questions, but I'm drawing the line at ridiculous low-ball offers because the market is weak.

I would take the kit but you won't ship to Philadelphia.

I can't resist looking at pictures of this kit. I'm surprised it hasn"t sold to a forum member up north.

These drums remain available and untouched since placed in the cases.

 

Unfortunately shipping is cost prohibitive, so I'm looking for local buyers. I'm willing to meet someone part way.

 

If you're in the Buffalo area, I'd be willing to bring them across the border, but I'd want to get a handle on the import fees before doing so. If the tariff is reasonable, I'd be willing to absorb it.

 

Price remains at $2,500USD. Drums and case only. No hardware (or cowbell).

 

I'll be listing locally, Kijiji, in the next few days.

In the pic posted, the bass drum looks to be 16x22, not 14" depth. Is this correct?


I love mine! And Treviso is accurate with it being a buyer's market at the moment, I'm afraid. It won't move for $2500, cases or no. But best of luck with the sale!

14 inch depth is correct. I won't be splitting that kit up.

It looks soooooo 16" deep. Nice drums!!

There is only a couple of drum shops in Toronto that would handle this professionally. Others im afraid would make you feel like you have a nice MIJ kit and offer you 700 because they have to make a profit!..Ask around if you are not sure, and believe me when i say prepare to be insulted if you walk into the wrong store.

I give up.

 

I don't own a 20" deep drum.

 

FYI - Those are PHX and still made in Japan.

Whoever's on the fence with these should grab them. It's truly a kit you'll regret not buying.
