    First, to Trilock_Gurtu and Gunnellett - My apologies for taking things out on you guys. This discussion got overheated, and that's on me. Here's what got things going for me - we had what turned out to be a collectible drum set show up in a craigslist ad. It apparently got the attention of...

    Well, ultimately that's what it comes down to. One way to find out is to contact the new owner and ask. And just because the deal didn't get done the way you and a couple of other forum members hoped it would get done doesn't make it unethical.

    You're the one that posted about the "1000% markup", so it only makes sense to conclude that it really upset you that they're out of your price range now. Since it seems like a big deal to you, I just suggested that you make what you would consider to be a reasonable offer. Apparently, you're...

    It’s the things we want to get rid of and sitting around unsold thread

    I look at it this way - if I put something in the For Sale section, that means I should have everything ready for sale. Not necessarily boxed up, but at least ready to be boxed up. I should also have good pics of everything, with serial numbers and all that kind of stuff as well. If someone...

    So your only interest is in complaining about the possibility that someone might make some money on the drums?

    Then make them an offer of what you think it's worth.

    It’s the things we want to get rid of and sitting around unsold thread

    I have 2 Slingerland projects - one is an Avante kit in Black Sparkle with some issues on the bass drum, and the other is a set I rescued from a friend, 12/13/16/22 that the interiors were painted black and the wrap stripped off. I think it's a 60's kit because it has the push button floor tom...

    Morello: Master Studies

    Without knowing which things specifically you're referring to, one thing I would say is pay attention to the rhythm that he uses. One example - he has a series of exercises of single strokes into double strokes, back and forth. There's a natural tendency to want to play the doubles twice as fast...

    Nothing shady or suspicious going on. Those kind of deals catch the eye of people all around the country. Maybe the local guy contacted the Florida guy, who he knows would be interested. Or maybe the Florida guy contacts the local guy, who he has dealt with before, and asks him if he can pick it...

    It sounds like you figured it out pretty well!

    Medical surgical tubing

    I think you can apply that line of thinking all across the board. Why use a top of the line kit, or even an intermediate level kit? An entry level kit with new heads would work just as well once the band cranks up. Same with cymbals - actually, they might be an advantage because they're a little...

    de-yellowing before and after

    Johnny C. has a great, well deserved reputation for being a great guy, but I think if you had approached him and asked him to show you every step of his steam bending process with the intent of using what he had showed you to start making shells on your own, his response might have been...

    Ebay Nightmare

    I think you can create a whole set of problems when you buy something on ebay, there's a problem, and you try and go around ebay and contact the seller directly. Ebay is not Craigslist - there is a fee for the seller to use ebay, and those fees go to pay people to deal with situations like...

    Evans. Damn, They Did It Again..... Logo Change!

    And then we could ask, why do you care about what anyone of us finds important? Maybe it's just a topic of conversation on an internet drum forum.

    Ebay Nightmare

    And this situation was not the fault of ebay; in fact, if it wasn't for them, it would have been the nightmare of all nightmares.

    Ebay Nightmare

    Exactly! Don't have a drum shop in your area? Drum shops DO ship! Neither Ebay or Amazon are drum shops; a drum set is, to them, just another SKU, and it's treated just like any other piece of merchandise. I'm not going to say that none of this would have happened if you had bought from a drum...

    So, are you saying that because he posted pics of his work, that he owes us an explanation of how he gets his results?
