Default Camco

I'm thinking about taking the plunge into my first Camco kit. How does this one look? As far as I know it's all original with no real issues.
Thanks.

Naaaaaah! You won't like them. Those drums are too small, They aren't shiny enough. Those lugs are copies of DW. The tom mount is too flimsy. There's a hole in the bass drum head. Leave 'em alone. Some fool will overpay for them. (sarcasm alert)

I can't say I'm a fan of there lugs. I like more traditional style lugs, but that's just me.

Those shells look to be in great shape though, but that tom mount is really rusty, which seems strange given the condition of the drums overall. The matte finish is ok, but I like my cars, guitars and drums to shine.

Do we dare ask how much? Camco's can be really expensive!

a few things don't look right.
Bottom rims look non original.
Finish looks like it has been redone.
White painted interior is usually a wrapped kit.
Bass drum hoops with inlay (WMP) are suspect.
Claws and tension rods on bass are not correct.
Floor tom legs are not Camco.
Should be a nice sounding player kit for sure.
Are they Oaklawn? can't tell by the pictures but looks to be. (USA)

It's an Oaklawn kit, I'll have to ask the owner about all the issues you pointed out.
Btw, he wants $1,500.

I agree with DRUM69's analysis.

Tension rods also seem to be only on the reso head and they look like ludwigs.

That looks like a nice players drum set--a ten footer to people who know what that means.

So, $1,500 is probably too high?
