They've been played very little during the past thirty some years. I'm assuming that he didn't spend much of that free time in a library. "Base drums, peddle, rotor tom, symbols, and ready for mowing" I'm hoping that this was put on CL as a joke.
Assuming that he has not lost the bottom heads and tension rods, I'm wondering how easy it would be to install bottom heads at this point. I remember buying a kit in the early nineties that had not had bottom heads on it in fifteen years, it was a bear to install bottom heads on.
That's funny, the guys posting it all over Virginia Craigslist. I guess he's having a hard time unloading that thing. He needed to include the Simmons but then again he says he already sold them. He's actually selling the least interesting part of that kit!
The seller including a list of all 6 digit vintage keystone badge serial numbers is priceless. Apparently, it never occurred to the seller that their drum has 7 digits....and doesn't appear on the pre-1970 list.
I see stuff like this on CL all the time in my area. I don't even bother looking here anymore because all the sellers here think that they are holding on to gold. Funny thing is that the stuff never sells because I see the same adds for months. It's ridiculous! If I'm gonna pay more, I might as well buy new.
