Default Red Sparkle Foor Tom

Hey guys, I have an old MIJ Norma kit in red sparkle wrap, and I'm looking to add a second floor tom to it.

Preferably I would like another Norma floor tom to match the set, but I know there aren't many just hanging around. So, I might also be interested in other MIJ floor toms in red sparkle as well, anything from 14" - 16" would work fine.

Pics of the kit can be seen on my User CP page if you want to see the wrap.

Thank you!

There was a guy out on Long Island selling a MIJ red sparkle set for $99 recently on CL. You should check there. You could put the two sets together, or just sell the rack tom and bass drum. Can't beat the price.

UPDATE: Here you go. Now $85 for three drums. He's in Patchogue. Go get them!

Bob, believe me, I've been eying this hodge-podge MIJ kit since he posted it and I'm very tempted at that price. I mean the floor tom is worth that price to me.

But I just can't take the full kit at this time even at that price. I have no place for it. I'm working on a deal with somebody else at the moment, but I might try and wangle a deal with the Patchogue guy for just the floor tom if things fall through.

Thanks for looking out!

My brothers first drum set or "kit" was a red sparkle!

Mine to...this one!

But truth be told, I'm a little bit older than when your brother had his first red sparkle drum kit!

It's not fancy or exotic, but all the "cool kids" had them in the 60's!
