    Man, I know used drums depreciate pretty badly, but that seems awfully low for a kit that size! Am I missing something Late?

    Bob, Pearl Exports don't fetch much on the used drum market. I priced comparable kits with hardware and cymbals and folks are asking way too much in my humble opinion, in some cases $800+ for a beat up Pearl Export kit with single braced hardware and B8 Sabians or Zildjian ZBTs all over the kit.

    I found the perfect buyer; a guy who walked away from his kit 20 years ago and was itching to get back to where he had left off. He didn't care for the color but that didn't matter. He just wanted two bass drums and a bunch of rack toms. The timing was perfect. The buyer was meeting a guy at the local hardware store to buy a rack when I returned his email. I rushed down within a few hours and met the buyer at the same hardware store parking lot where we made the deal. I peaked into his car and noticed a old rusty rack with a bunch of mismatched parts. I knew at that moment this buyer was on a budget.

    I'm done searching for "the kit". I got three that I'm keeping till it's time to take my dirt nap; Gretsch, DW and Ludwig.

    good choices for your perma sets my friend. I could see my way to the end of the line with any of those sets.

    all the best...
