    Default $20 steal of a deal...

    So I snatched up all of this for a mere $20....

    I got 7 toms and a Ludwig snare (forgot to take photo of)


    The guy took all the bottom heads off for a classic horrible sound apparently lol
    But they were all included (just not the tension rods... boo)


    Also a couple of misc stands, hardware and a hi-hat and BD pedal (not pictured) that match the kit.



    Not sure what my plans will be... but for $20 bucks who would pass that up?!

    Awesome! I would have snatched it up too. I can always find a use for that stuff...even if it's for making lamps, clocks, end tables, trash cans or a cat tree.
    Too bad the shells and hoops are 4 and 5 lug. Although........they would work fine for a jungle kit. 5 lugs is probably enough for a 16" bass drum. My home made kit has a 4-lug 8" tom and a 6-lug 16" bass. I keep them tuned loose and I've never had any issues with it staying in tune or breaking lug cases.

    Man, that's awesome! One of those cymbal stands alone would've been over $20 in a music store.

    Yea that Yamaha cymbal stand is worth the $20 .
    There's a guy here in town that buys junk stuff like this off of Craigslist . He puts it all together and makes it look nice then he rents or sells it to the small "independent film makers" around here . There are a lot of small movies and band videos filmed around town here . Lots of money being thrown about . This guy is smart enough that he found a way to get some of it . He does pretty good too . Most of the stuff is used for props .
    He sold three kits to a guy who was making a music video where they were supposed to set the drums on fire . Turns out it was a lot harder to do than they thought ! Well...they didn't burn like he thought they would . So it took three times for him to be satisfied . LOL !

    That's a Ludwig Rocker Steel Snare if I'm not mistaken
    A simple, elegant design is good engineering.
