Default A.F. Blaemire Drum Set

I'm selling a set of three authentic A.F. Blaemire toms as well as the bass drum that's part of the same set.

I've had a hard time finding the exact value of my set but from the people I've talked to on this forum I feel like they could go anywhere from around $500-$1000 plus shipping, so I'll be taking offers and not listing a set price.

All of the Toms seem to be in pretty good condition with just a few nicks here and there, they just need new drum heads and a little bit of TLC. Plus from what I've found out most Blaemire fans would want to take the wraps off for the raw fiberglass look. The three toms sizes are shown below.
1. 14" deep and 15.5" diameter
2. 9.75" deep and 13.5" diameter
3. 9" deep and 12.5" diameter

From what I can tell the Bass drum isn't a Blaemire drum as it's made out of wood and I think everything that Blaemire made (or was at least known for) was fiberglass. I would be willing to sell the toms separate if no one wants the Bass drum. The Bass drum isn't in quite as good of shape either and needs quite a bit of work. It's dimensions are, 14" deep and 21" diameter. I do think it's of note to say that all four of the drums have a tags that say WELLINGTON CUSTOM BUILT DRUMS on them.

If the pictures aren't enough I've included a short video showing all the drums at the link below.

I'm definitely not an expert on these drums or any drums in general for that matter and have done quite a bit of research to get to this point, so if you want to see the threads I've started about these drums see the two links below.

So yeah, if you're interested in these drums or if you have any questions, send me a message. I also found a B4514 Pearl snare with the same set and would be willing to sell it with the set or by itself. Thanks, and I'm located in Utah about an hour from Salt Lake, so if you're interested and in the area I'd be willing to let you see them too.

These (toms) are great sizes to add to your collection.

Yep, these are still for sale. The highest current offer I've gotten is $325 plus shipping for just the three Blaemire toms. Thanks
