A few new higher end items showed up in the WH this week. Some fun stuff too, imo. All used, you might have to dig for the used listing a bit.

Pearl
youth sized marching basses.
https://www.amazon.com/Pearl-MJB1408-CXN33-Marching-Carrier/dp/B01ERX5LN6 14x8 186
https://smile.amazon.com/Pearl-MJB1608-CXN33-Marching-Carrier/dp/B01ERX5MTY 16x8 116
travel drums/practice set. its just no-shell bass and tom hoops.

https://www.amazon.com/Soultone-Cymbals-HVHMR-CHN23-23-Heavy-Hammered/dp/B00DDLPWGU 23 inch heavy china 171.
https://www.amazon.com/Soultone-Cymbals-EXT-MBRID26-26-Extreme-Mega/dp/B00DDLUTA4/ 23 inch Extreme Mega Bell Ride 140

https://www.amazon.com/Meinl-Percussion-HE-3012-Engraved-Synthetic/dp/B000GEE7BI/ - meinl doumbek 92 (I'm never sure what is a good price on hand percussion like this, seems cheap for a meinl item.)

Musoo
https://www.amazon.com/Musoo-Mute-Splash-Cymbals-Practice/dp/B08MDWDKK2/ - low noise cymbals. hats, 16/18/20. I like when they count both hat cymbals and call it a 5-peice set.

Yamaha

https://www.amazon.com/Istanbul-Mehmet-Cymbals-ML-R22-22-Inch/dp/B00JYFA0QG/ -Istanbul Mehemet Legend 22 inch jazz ride, thin (I have enough jazz rides but the longer this sits there....)

Amazon needs to do a major price adjustment on that 22" Paiste 2002. It's used and cosmetically damaged but priced higher than a brand new one. I've noticed wild prices in the Amazon warehouse. Sometimes some fantastic deals are shown and some are not.

I see that these newer 7 ply Gretsch Catalina Club kits get a lot of love here. Here's a bronze sparkle bop kit for $449. "Used Like New" in my experience means new with damaged boxes or returned in perfect condition. There's also a bigger kit with 24" bass drum for $577.

Worth the risk as the returns are free...but many of these way under priced sets are showing up missing a box, so if you grab one don't get too excited until it's delivered.

Just bought a Bosphorus 18" New Orleans flat ride for $128 + free shipping. They have another for $124 and free shipping. Been curious about these. Can't wait to get it. I also saw a New Orleans crash for under $140.... View attachment 512695
Whelp, the Bosphorus New Orlean flat ride for $128 never made it to me. UPS lost it in Lenexa. That hurt...really wanted that

I'm the one that got the NO flat ride at $124. I'd offer it to you but have already traded it away.

Amazon had a return on a 20" Mehmet Origin Dark ride for $200 that I had been pondering. Pulled the trigger this morning after listening to a few youtubes.

I sold 14 cymbals and have now bought 15 Bosphorus and one Mehmet. Need to sell a few more.

Aww man thank you for saving me on that Origin ride! I just bought two other cymbals or I would have already grabbed this one. I would love to hear your review of it when you play it.

I got that, but you were replying to a post about a different cymbal, a Mehmet Origin Dark Ride:

I probably would too. And I keep having too many rides! I sell a couple and then end up buying a couple. Those Nostalgia cymbals are nice, but probably not what I want.
