    There are 2 things that will make me walk away from a great kit at a great price without glancing back over my shoulder: concert toms and power toms.
    Mmm... Saturns.

    Thanks man. There aren't too many "New to Me" threads on DC so I'm looking forward your follow up.

    Shots of the kit set up prior to me looking at them. They are currently in my basement. I still need to look over them and check bearing edges, etc., but they appear to be in pretty darn good shape for a 26 year old kit. Total tally is 10x10, 12x10, 13x11, 14x12, 16x16, 22x16, 14x6.5 Snare plus an extra 14x4 piccolo snare and an extra 18x16 floor tom (Export series in similar color that I may make into a gong drum), 14" Zildjian New Beats, 16" Zildjian medium thin crash, 22" Sabian AA ride, a set of older pearl double pedals, all hardware in the pictures plus an extra boom stand, and 2 thrones for $800.

    I'd say you did really well. I'd guess the cymbals alone are worth close to what you paid for everything.

    Congrats!!

    Thanks Bish, the bummer is I have to take my youngest to guitar lesson and then come home and cut the grass/weedwhip before I can look at them. Really want to take everything apart and make sure it is in good shape. The Pearl hardware/stands seems on par with the Yamaha set I have, which is nice. They will all need new heads and 3 of the hanging toms will need ISS mounts switched to RIMS or Optimounts, but outside of that it should be all elbow grease.

    There in lies most of the fun. Really getting to know your new gear. I would take the time and remove everything you can and really wipe them down and give them a good goings over. I would guess it to take several days and in terms of wrenching on the gear, at least it won't be noisy so you can stay up later at night. I'm a night owl so that works great for me.

    Keep us posted on the progress. Looking forward to your reviews!

    So I typed too fast on my description post, there is no 14" tom on the kit. It is a 10, 12, 13, 16, 22, with a 14x6.5 snare.

    That sounds more like a normal rock configuration anyhow. Still some beastly drums shells, huh?

    Update: took all the lugs and legs/spurs off of the shells and gave them a good cleaning, then polished with guitar polish. 10" tom has a slight divot on top bearing edge but besides that all are structurally fine. A few battle scars from the past, but actually really great shape for it's age. Shells are incredibly light! I have a wedding to go to, so that's all I can do for today. Soaking tension rods in mineral spirits. Will try to get all the lugs and hoops polished up tomorrow. The whole kit needs new heads, not sure when those will get ordered. Will post pics when I am done!

    Yeah Bish, the shells seem killer. Can't wait to get everything back together, tuned up, and start playing on them.

    Thinking Clear G2s over G1s and an EQ3 on the kick. Haven't landed 100% on that yet, but how I am leaning now. Input/advice from anyone is always appreciated.

    Word - OUTSTANDING!!!

    Are you having fun yet?

    As far as heads go.....I've always liked clear 2 ply but more and more my kits seem to sound better with coated 2 ply. I'm not sure what has triggered it but I'm finding more and more I'm moving away from clear heads. Must be an age thing.....RICK?

    Thanks Bish. I actually am enjoying it. Need to pick up some wood filler for the small fleabite on the 10" tom. I think I will re-assemble everything sans heads and then start on the bass. I like coated heads as well, just not sure how I would like the look of a white head on an ivory drum. I do have a new Evans coated snare head I can throw on and see how it looks. My drum instructor stopped by to see the kit and said I stole it. He said the shells alone could easily get $1500 or better as is.

    - OR -

    You could try these....I just out-fitted my Stage Customs and oh man, I've never heard them sound better. I got them for my Tour Customs as well. I'm liking these heads a lot. But it's early so time will tell.

    Nice looking kit Bish. I considered the black heads but ended up going clear G2 over G1 to start with as several people on the PDF had used that combo on their MBX kits. I can always try the black heads next time they need to be changed. Heads should be here by Friday so hopefully next weekend my new kit is ready to go!

    Wow! The kit looks great. Congrats on the score! Good choice of heads; 2 ply clear over 1 ply clear. I have EQ3 heads clear-batter/ebony-reso on my Collectors with the Evans EQ pad and it sounds killer.
