I just got a wild deal from Amazon, perhaps unintentionally. I bought the 15" Bosphorus crash kindly posted here and wound up really liking it. So, I ordered a 20" ride from that same line $236 US very reasonable.

But!
They also sent a 24" Turk flat ride super light that is pretty amazing out the box - no break in.
So 20" Antique ride plus 24" Turk flat for $236

Of course they arrived loose in an un fitted box that was half way split open, but that's Amazon for ya.
They sent something you didn't ask for?

That's even better than the time my dad asked the ATM for $100 and it gave him 4 20s and 1 100...and the bank wouldn't take it back....

Wow!! I just purchased the Bos Turk 19" flat ride from there and await its arrival. Would be nice to see an extra something in the box, but my luck just isn't that good...

Previous generation Protection Racket sets. Great deal, set of 5 ($131.43 with free shipping at time of posting) for not much more than the cost of an individual 22"...

Those are a great deal. Last time they came up, there were other configs available as well for a good price. Not sure any of the prepacks would ever help me though.

Ok, I don't understand, do you check Amazon every seconds to find all that good deals or? Do you have any alert on Amazon? Or the best way for me is to check this thread every day? Let me know...

Stuff you look at get put into your AZ browsing history. Make a shortcut or favorite it and check it all the time.

Ok, I have never bought anything in Amazon so, I didn't know but well, yes, that makes sense,mthanks, I will do it...Also, I was for 10 years in my own in France with 2 surfshop so, I have always favored local stores compared to big boxes but I could have liked the bags for sure...

Yes, you probably could do that. Or, you could help out a young drummer who doesn't have a set to play? Just a thought. :cool:
or give away my sons Breakbeats and give him this one! I have a feeling more of these are blowing out soon, probly sitting in the warehouse since 2016, maybe they can relabel them Pearl Duo Decades..... the badges say Made in China, not very appealing then and even less now. Just dont pair them with Wuhans and make it worse.

I have received several cymbals from Amazon with the edges roughed up due to lousy packaging but you can always return them.
