Default Wrap issues on possible Psych Red buy

Have a chance to grab these.
These are the only 2 issues.
Slight seam separation on tom.
Small crack in bass drum.
Repairable?
22/13/16
price seems fair considering the condition which is very good.
Thoughts?

Not much you can do for the bass, other than make sure the wrap around the crack is glued down to prevent further damage. Maybe get creative and fill with colored wax...

The tom is a fairly easy fix...

Not an expert on this finish but those two wraps don't match.

I think I understand what Slingerfan was referring to. In the image of the bass drum the red seems to dominate more than the green. On the tom green seems more dominant then the red. This of course could be the result of the lighting when each photograph was taken. Perhaps when viewed together under the same lighting conditions the wrap on the two drums does look identical.

Exactly. And I passed on them. Made offer without snare too.
The tom issue not disclosed in listing either. Way too HIGH in my book for a kit with any issues.
Have at em..

They are kind of high but they look all original and the color looks fantastic. Those are some strong greens! It's also common to see color patterns that don't match. The colors were different from batch to batch and some had more blue, some had more green, some had more red. IMO they look terrible without green but these greens are vibrant. I'll bet the lifting wrap is a pretty easy fix but that crack sucks. I'm sure it could probably be sealed up to prevent any further damage. I don't really think the price is all that crazy....
