If I priced it at $700 shipped I would be getting about $375-$400 for the kit. Not going to do that. I decided to keep them. In fact, even a local sale I have decided to take no less than $750 or, perhaps, trade for some cymbals like Sabian Hammertone hats and ride. But shipping is out of the question. It is now exorbitant and will probably start affecting eBay and Reverb sales in the neat future if the trend of crazy shipping costs continue.This kit falls into the age old situation of Slingerlands not bringing in the same dollar as the other three brands of vintage kits!
I would bet that if you dropped the price to $650-700 shipped it would move. I’m a firm believer in the mahogany shells sounding phenomenal as I have two full kits and some miscellaneous orphans.
And to reaffirm the 12” deep bass drum, killer drum right there.
As others have said, if I didn’t have a WFL kit in like sizes it would be mine!/
With all due respect, it cost me $90 to ship three drum cases from FL to CA, so I challenge your assertion. Three soft cases!With all due respect, one could ship that kit anywhere in the US for less than $100. As good as they may sound, it is still a mismatched, re-wrapped kit with extra holes. I sincerely wish you all the best.
