Default Need help shipping a kit from MA

Just kidding. Very cool kit though. Kinda resembles a space capsule. Tama motherlode.

I live in a college town and I have a friend that has a bunch of rental units. He's always complaining about how hard it is to evict bad tenants. I've told him he just needs to let me use the apartment below them or next to them as my practice room and they would be out within a few nights. But, I think just sending a pic of that kit to them would do the trick!

Cool Re: Need help shipping a kit from MA

A little on the expensive side, but, a cool set nevertheless...

Here`s a copy of the listing for the archives:

Hello Everyone!!! Thanks for checking out my Drum set for sale, whether you are just passing by or interested in it.



First and foremost, I have to bring to your attention that I am not looking to part it out, but to sell the entire set.

Little story behind it: I had a band in the late 90's. I got together with my old friends and proposed a reunion; they all agreed and were very excited. I started to buy the instruments (to include this drum set), but do you know what happened? Exactly!!! they found other priorities, got married and I now have this drum set that I am not going to use. It is taking lots of space in my house and since I am not going to play it, I decided to let it go.



My loss is your gain, I am posting it trying to get some of my money back. I am a very laid back person so you can feel free to make me an offer; the worse that I can say is "no, it's worth a little more "

This Drum set is a 21 pieces made in Japan Tama Imperialstar with 16 zildjian cymbals. This is a professional drum set.

As you can see in the pictures, it is a well maintained set. Just keep in mind, it is over 20 years old and it does show sign of usage (scratches, nicks) Lots of the chrome are newer. Few stands still have the store tag.

The bass drums are 24"

I have all sizes of toms; from 4" to 18"

The cymbals are too much to list, I also have all kinds of them .

Most of the skins are brand new never played, just here you are taking close to $500.00 in skins alone. You are getting at least $5000,00 on cymbals alone, plus the stands that are close to new condition. I do apologize in advance; I can't let anyone to play on it due to it being all cleaned up and the skins being replaced, I hope you understand. Thank you.



The last 2 pictures are extra stuff that you will be taking as free items. The double bass pedals is Pacific brand.

This is a monster set and it will require at least 2 people to move, you will also need a medium size transport van. I can help you to load it.

My name is Ryan, you can reach me at seven 8 one, 2 four nine, 92 eight zero

Absolutely NO SOLICITORS!!!

ATTN: due to the size of this drum set, it is impossible to ship it. BUYER'S PICK UP ONLY.

Cheers

It probably is on the high side, but that's a lot of cymbals and drums and I can't even begin to add up the value/cost. Either way, he might have to part it out eventually.
I like his style though- full tilt. I can't imagine setting up and breaking down that kit. I use a 4 piece + snare and that seems like a lot to me after playing a 3 to 4 hour show.

Might backfire. That would make me want to stay and not move.
