Man you were definitley in the right place at the right time! It sounds like the previous owner had a couple smokes with some Fleishmans and then decided to give up drums entirely.I bought a whole pile of trap cases and a rolling hardware case off of this young woman on Craigslist for $50. It all belonged to her husbands Father who had passed and he told her to get rid of it.
When I showed up to pick it up she said that she had been inundated with replies. I gave her the $50, loaded 7 or 8 cases and went on my way.
inside was a Dayton era Rogers kit, a pile of Zildjian cymbals, and Acrolite , a pack of half smoked marlboro an open bottle of Fleishmans and an envelope with $25 in cash.
I believe I win.
