New member here asking for your advise. My 13 y.o. son is taking lessons, not a terribly gifted drummer, but keeping at it, great alternative to just basketball, etc.. He is using a Dawson kit with more or less decent aftermarket cymbals. I got hold of an incomplete Pearl wood-fibreglass kit, made in Japan, in the 1970´s. It's missing : 2 bass - tom arms, 1 tom bracket for said arm, 3 rims (floor tom and 2 toms), rubber feet on bass, floor and snare stand and the Pearl logo skin (plus the 3 tom skins..) . There is no other hardware and no snare. Is there any chance to find the missing pieces for a resonable price ? I don't want to pay collectors prices for the stuff. The rims are for the bottom, so if I can't find those, the set is still playable with the rims on the top. The arms and bracket are a must have in order to even start.. I would either need to find a more or less decent snare or keep the Dawson one for the time being, I would definitely keep all the cymbals, hihat, stands, etc.. If I get hold of those rims, I can just get some secondhand or new skins, including a plain white one for the bass drum and then an aftermarket Pearl logo.. I am in Spain/Europe so shipping costs are an issue. I don't dare publish what the incomplete kit has cost me (from a music store fed up with having it hanging around, not a junkie needing a fix) and I don't pretend getting the missing pieces for free - but I am not into spending lots of cash either.. What do you think, am I chasing a white elephant or can I really hope to complete the set, eventually ? Thanks for your input.
