Default Pink oyster

What do you guys think of a slingy pink oyster kit?

I would prefer that to the Black or Blue Oyster that about as commonplace as a silver Camry.

Slingerland's "Oyster Pink Pearl" is totally cool...and rare! Here are pictures of a few kits I've seen on eBay over the years.

If the few extra holes aren't too noticeable, a good price, a really beautiful wrap and killer sound.... IMHO I say they should be on their way home to you!

How about posting a photo or two of this kit you're looking to buy. How do you expect us to really give you an opinion if we can't see it?

And the address and phone number of the guy selling them...then we can really ascertain what you're looking at


The extra holes and other issue would have to be pretty serious for me to pass up such a set in that particular wrap at that price. Short of the wrap falling off the drums or there being double-digit extra holes (swiss cheesed) I think I could deal any minor faults in order to afford a set in such a cool wrap.
