With the case that is a good deal. I have a 6.5 and it is a great sounding drum. They are missing the guard rails that protect the throw, but that does not affect sound of the drum and if you dont throw it around, you dont need them.

Tampa, FL - local pickup only - $1600 for everything. Though the seller did indicate "they might consider shipping."

Yamaha 1989/90 black Recording Custom 5 piece kit in force sizes 10,12,14,16,22 + pro cymbals + vintage red line Yamaha 800/900 hardware. No snare drum (actually they have the original SD-493 piccolo brass snare and wanted to keep it as a keepsake of their Dad). Not a bad package at all for $1600 / obo on Ebay. Cheapest one I've ever seen on there. After backing out cymbals and hardware drums are $1000 or less.

Boy, those are beauties! I don't think I've ever seen that exact wrap color before, but it sure is nice. The price is ok if you can pick them up locally, but the shipping is killing it. But that chrome quality . . . wow.

Local to me - Slingerland Mahogany kit in Stage Band configuration, minus the bass drum! Chocolate milk interiors, rail mount with spade tom holder, PLUS - I didn't know they made a Stage Band floor tom in 16", but there it is! Not a bad deal for $600...

That is awesome. I've loved my Stage Band drums for years. Never did have a floor tom, though.
If one desires a stage band kit, that would be a great place to start. A bass drum may be hard to find in matching finish, but not as hard as a floor tom.

This one owner, 1965 Slingerland silver sparkle 12,14,20, 6 lug snare "mostly" stage band kit was also in the Connecticut CL back in February. Sold for $700 to a resaler....parting them out. Came with vintage starter cymbals (Japan/Meinl) and nice Slingerland/Ludwig hardware iirc. Mint throne. Clamp on cymbal mounts and spurs are cool too. Good deal. Surprised no collectors stepped up over those 4+ weeks. Original owner said he bought that floor tom at the same time as the other drums. Probably original shipped as a 3 piece.

Premiers kick butt. Do it.

Also, the mahogany Slingerlands above have been corrected to $800, not $600 as originally listed.

What a cool looking kit. With the 22" and smaller toms, it would make a killer kit for so many types of gigs.
Change the tom mount and floor tom legs and you've got some serious usable vintage vibe.
