Hey, guys,

Here's an excellent + condition Tama Starclassic Bop Kit in a natural satin finish. Phenomenal sound and appearance-- just perfect. Tama does these right.

Standard bop sizes: 14x18, 14x14, 8x12 with mount and floor tom legs. Heads are all in perfect shape and are as follows: Coated Ambassador batters on all three drums; clear ambassador resos on toms, and a smooth white PS3 with a Tama logo sticker (see first pic). Note: bass drum heads pictured on professional shots are NOT included.

In the interest of full disclosure: There is some slight finish checking on the inside of the batter bass drum hoop in the form of a few little lines that run across the interior of the hoop. These are invisible from most angles and in most lighting, but can be seen under bright daylight. They are NOT structural-- the hoop is solid. I've positioned these under the bass drum pedal and will install a Kenner leather hoop protector over top.

Extremely thorough photo album of these drums at every angle is here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/53NTUVYAbxTonpXC9

$1299 + ship in the CONUS.

Love that color and cast hoops! Alas, I'm not a fan of bop kits, though. GLWS.

Too bad you arent looking a round badge bebop kit.

I might be tempted to trade/cash

Dang those are beautiful

Beautiful! Love the coated bass drum batter head! The color looks a bit more brown in some pics and more yellow in others.

That's a beautiful set, and I admit I have a soft spot in my heart for a natural maple finish. I like the way the natural colors in maple become richer and more enhanced as the shells age. I would definitely buy this if I had any need for those sizes.

Bump. Would consider trades for some mics +/- cash (Neumann KM184 pair, SM57s, other great snare mics) or some K Cons (especially crashes and older MTH/MTLs).

Throw a price out at me. Let's get this show on the road.
