Sounds like a fantastic deal.

But be warned this is an entry level kit and entry level cymbals, so be warned, they will probably not sound very good, like all entry level stuff. However if you're just starting out or just need a practice kit, yes, this is a great deal.

I'd also be interested to find out what the custom snare is made out of. It looks like wood. Depending on how skilled whoever made it is, it could be worth $200 alone.

The kit is pretty much a lower intermediate kit and the cymbals are low end.

That said, you cant get much for $200 so I would say a complete kit like that is definately worth the money.

Grab it if you want it. Put new heads on it, top and bottom, and you will probably get pretty decent tone.

Edit: Is it missing a reso head and hoop on the bass drum?. Not a deal breaker but pretty important. Cant really tell in the pic.

Yep, looks pretty good for $200 dollars. Check it close up, to see it looks like it has all the parts, and how much it has been looked after, just to make sure.
