Guys....how about this scenario......the guy now selling them is not completely upfront about where he got them (basically telling stories about being the original owner), so he decides to use the pics of the drums from the UK website he bought them from, because, well, the drums are the actual drums and are now his and he is being lazy about taking new pics because maybe he's not as good a photographer as the original photographer was, and he is asking such an extreme price because he paid too much for them and is trying to recoup his money for both the drums AND the cost of having them shipped over from the UK.

Possible, yes. Likey & probable......no.

What could he possibly gain from having a fake add? I don't get why someone would do this. He won't get any cash without producing the kit.

The ad mentions a SNAR (I can only assume they meant a SNARE), and a few other bits, but the picture shows only the 2 toms and bass drum. I thought it might be fun to speculate as to what that snar and other bits might be like in order to justify the $4000 price.

My first thought...the bass drum is filled with meth.
Don't forget, it comes with a stool!

Gary sometimes it really does get ridiculous" social media," Brother I'm very happy for you getting the price you did for your kit. The market will bare what it will bare, You had a buyer that wanted the kit, Period.!!!

I completely agree with this. I believe we've made levity of it (the Cuyahoga Falls drums thing) because it's what most of us would never pay but when one has plenty 'o money, it's the highest bidder.
