So. Ive been watching this set.
I asked for more photos of the 12" mount and the bass drum batter rim and the tom arm.
Guy said "thats all the photos I have"

I lowballed an offer and commited IF I saw the requested photos and was ok with it.

I explained I just sold a round badge for the price of this kit.

They didnt accept my iffer and didnt offer to send more photos.

So? Is this ridiculous or what?

They look gorgeous and probably sound great. But that ad should come with bearing photos, tag photos etc

Why on earth does he think he will even get close to that price.

I say $2500 at the very most if...lots of ifs

I mean, if the guy doesn't want to send more pictures and doesn't want to budge on the price he doesn't have to. He can let the drums just sit on Reverb for forever.

There something wrong with those badges. They should be a darker, almost bronze sort of color. I suspect it is a refinish, and somebody tried to polish the badges, which is weird. Also, you can see extra holes from the original rail mount. Definitely not a $4K kit. Maybe 2.5K, if they sound great and the edges haven’t been messed with.

I'd run. Seriously. It's probably a refinish. Looks janky, and not in a good way.
I ran. After 3 nice amiable messages I was out.

But I was scratching my head.

He sent me a video of him playing in a dixieland band with them .

Uhmm. Well..uh...no comment.

Janky is right! Why on Earth would someone favor a Pearl/Maxwin slim hex arm mount over the original rail. Threw up in my mouth a little when I saw that. There should be a special prison! I would definitely pass.
