good plan. like i said those drums can sound good. the old luan can have some rich deep tone....IF its in round.
I may throw $40 at the seller and see what he says.not a Slingerland. Giveaway is:
1. its not 3 ply drum, at least the high tom is not. That looks like 5 ply, cheap luan.
2. Lugs are all wrong. The floor tom has Slingerland looking lugs, but many MIJ sets imitated that adn other USA lugs.
3. 6 lug bass drum, should be 8 lug if its a 20 inch bass drum. Bad, very cheap.
4. not Slingerland tom mount.
Its a cheap MIJ. The Blue Agate wrap came in many MIJ drums. I had identical 5 ply luan in another MIJ set which actually sounded quiet nice, but the quality of build is not there....and of course nor are the badges
That could be. Don't know why someone would remove the slingerland badges if it really was a slingerland.I think it was a true Slingerland, it was say so on the badges.
Which makes me think it's a generic made-in-Japan kit that had a genuine Slingerland tom mount added to it.
Sounds fair. Thanks for the adviceThe seller not knowing what they are, what they're worth, is a plus for you. Its not your job to educate the seller per say and (if you feel) that being so, I would offer him $100
Depending on the condition, like 'if' the bass and tom were spanky clean and together mechanically, there's buyers out there who would pay $400
Deff the FT is not the same wrap, and Blue Agate Pearl is rare these day, I used to have a set in BAP.
Super rare to find a lone FT in BAP but I know for a fact its happened, had a lone one of those too, clean/solid, sold it for hundreds.
The seller not knowing what they are, what they're worth, is a plus for you. Its not your job to educate the seller per say and (if you feel) that being so, I would offer him $100That looks like the wrap for sure. Upon second examination though, it looks like the floor tom has a sparkle and not the Agate Pearl finish. Could be an old mut kit.
Anyone have any ideas on what this is worth?
They certainly look similar but I don't think its the same. Tom mount looks different tand I think the bass drums are different sizes.That almost looks like the kits that Sears sold in the 1970-1976 era. Silvertones/Tempro/Pearl? I forget.
Is this the same kit as yours?
