    This was a dumb purchase-- I felt like I needed a dedicated bop kit, so even though I already have another Broadkaster kit, I bought these. I've come to my senses. They are FANTASTIC drums but I really don't need them.

    Gretsch Broadkasters in Satin Maple with the modern build. Although the photos don't show it, the Gretsch single tom arm and RIMS mount are included. Standard sized bop kit with the 5x14 snare. Everything's in fantastic shape and there are zero issues with the kit.

    How about $2099 + shipping or local pickup/delivery in Central New York?

    I've been going through some stuff. Decision-making hasn't been my strong suit these last couple months, though there's been nothing catastrophic.

    Anyway, looking for a much less expensive bop kit-- like, sub $800 if possible. What are the Slingerlands worth? PM me, or email.

    I'm interested, but don't really 'need' the kit either. As for a great short money bop kit, my choice would be a Yamaha Stage Custom hands down one of the best values out there right now. Great drums for short money.

    Where are you in 'central' NY ?

    Both these kits are Gorgeous! I own 2 bop kits myself. One is a recently aquired Gretsch Renown in blue metal no snare for 6 bills absolute dead mint condition too. The second is a Yamaha 8000 series that came with a matching Yamaha RC snare Drums are black laquer condition is probably an 8.75 out of 10 they were around 600 when I got them as well it was another case of GC didn't know what they had. I hesistate to call that kit a bop kit only because those birch / mahogany shells have a very nice low end so they're the perfect small foot print rock kit as well. GLWS!!

    Hey, Jerome. I'm in Hamilton, NY, about 4.5 hours from Boston. My son goes to Brown, though, so I get out your way fairly often. I also have a friend who drives to Belmont every couple of weeks. Let me know. BTW, we know each other from forums and facebook and such-- it's Mark Shiner. Not sure if you knew that.

    I have a GMS Bop Kit made in New York
    Wonderful drums
    If this is a Taiwan model it should still be quite nice quality.
    Love the color

    Added some new photos here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1UPM3TnuZQeiGAui8

    These are still available but going to Reverb or eBay within the next day or two. I just played two gigs with them this weekend and got SO many compliments. They are amazing drums. I'm only selling because I don't need two small Broadkaster kits.

    Really wish my ad hadn't been taken up by Killian's thing being posted and reposted, but I deserve punishment for my sins, I guess.

    1966bmx, Scaramanga and costanzadrums. I took down my photo. Could i kindly ask that you edit your post and delete the photo of my Slingerlands?

    Then the focus is rightly on the beautiful Gretsch Drums being sold .

    Thanks guys and sorry Mark
