Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

I just went back and read the text. It's obvious that the seller has a personal attachment to the set, which he feels justified in charging more. That's the first mistake we should never make! Next,...

Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

Shipping has skyrocketed in the past few years! As to the eBay offering, the shipping price of $200 is more than reasonable. I sold a 1968 Slingerland BR80N set, with the complete hardware pack,...

Re: MIJ Snare: $750 YIKES!

I also sent a nice message to the seller, in regards to pricing, and have yet to hear back. I have a feeling I'll never hear back!

Re: Too Bad Not to Need Another Kit

Dan!

Now, that's just a cool Rogers "Top Hat" set! Yes, the Green Satin Flame/Aquamarine Satin Flame looks 60's to early 70's period correct! While Rogers never offered satin flame wraps, I'd...
