    I've got a heavily modified Ludwig Accent Custom (One of the higher end Accent kits after CS Combo which is the cheapest but still a quality instrument and Accent CS) after finding a great deal at my local music store

    Ok a few years back my church decided to get a new drum set cause the old one "was old". I wasn't there when this happened and they sold the kit (i'm sure for a minimal price) to one of the other guys in the church and bought an entry level PDP kit which sounds horrible (it has stock heads and nothings reaqlly been done). Anyway I found out that the set they got rid of was an old 5 piece Luddy Vistalite in the clear blue finish. I haven't seen it but I want it. The guy who has them doesn't even play, he bought them to learn and now they're just sitting in his garage. What do you think would be a fair price to offer him. He says they're in good shape with a few scratches but nothing mechanically wrong with them. I've seen similar on ebay for anywhere between $600-$1,500. I really want this kit. What do you think.

    My uncle has the blue virsatle. If they are in good shape, then I would offer a little more. Make a good but low starting offer then make your way up from there.

    Maybe you should start by getting the church drums to sound good?

    I think you would be a very proud owner . My friennd bought a new set in 1978 and not only looked good but sounded good.

    Best of luck , and remember as stated already......start low cause you can always go higher , once you start high you cant go lower .

    I have a new Vistalite snare, a 6-1/2" x 14". Great sound and pop. Not as warm or versatile as a wood snare, but it definitely has a nice sound to it. I mainly bought it to round out the rest of my Vistalite kit. I've never played one of the older Vistalite snares.

    I did have a Centennial kit for a short time right after they came out. It's a great bargain for what you get and definitely a big step up from the Accent series. Booming sound and nice finish (I had the silver sparkle lacquer). The only reason I don't still have it is I traded it back so I could get the one of the new Vistalite kits.

    My drum store has some sets and they look very nice but I have not played them. I can tell you that Ludwig inter. kits are and sound very very good. I play mine more than my Maple classic kit. Nuff Said
