Default craigslist score

$200 for a 4 piece premier set with 4 cymbals, three stands, a throne and a double pedal..which i have no use or desire for.

i have no clue when they were made. I dont think theyre that old but I plan on reading and am super excited to add another kit into my arsenal

I plan on sourcing all of the missing parts like my bass hoops

I think the sizes are as follow

12' tom
14.5 floot
14 snare
22? bass


cymbals are all kind of garbage but theyre something to destroy and play while I collect funds to continue the resto on my star kit

Cool. cymbals could make a kid happy for some cash. Double pedal worth some cash as well. Might get the drums and throne for $100 from that sale alone. Good score.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

yep!

I took apart the snare because the head was acting funny only to discover a crack in the shell.

i am trying to use some wood glue and clamps to set it better

I think it's only a 3 ply snare so it's pretty thin

anyway, Ill post some videos of me shredding one of these days

The tom mount suggests 90s, like an APK. Wood should be Birch, possibly along with something else.

Great score - those hats could be great? What's wrong with the Sabian (what model is it?)

Some people have built entire collections on flip deals like this. Sell off that which you don't want and be left with what you do want - for nothing or even sometimes making money while adding drums to the collection. Really amazing how possible it is to do this in recent years (in the last 5-10). Was a bit easier to do this a couple years back, but these deals are still out there.......when you know drums.

yeah im slowly learning

the cymbals are all fine, theyre just fillers until I get the line up im looking for

16' pro sonic sabian crash
20' pro sabian ride.
13' wuham s series hats
busted up 17' paiste full crash thats fully broken

but the bell has that trashy china sound to it...yeah...

the snare that came with my premier kit is messed and broken, my bad..
the shell is collapsed on the top end between two lugs..... and is definitely out of round...

is this thing even worth saving or should I scrap that parts and move on?

I was really looking forward to this snare, ive read that the star snares that are associated with my blue sparkle kit leave a little bit to be desired.

more projects


speaking of my star snare I am trying to put back the snare strainer, piece that adjusts the snares.

I am not sure I am putting it together the same as I took it apart...should have taken photos..my memory is no camera lol


i should upload photos because this whole description thing isnt working so hot..
lol

The cymbals you have are not that bad at all. This would be a great set to gig with, the wuhan hats s series are very good hats. I owned an entire set of S series they are modeled after the K zildjian series of cymbals, I was very pleased with the entire set I had.

its funny because the more I learn the more work I have to do. Simply because I am becoming aware of the things I missed in the first place!!!
