The Grtesch sounds nice. Needs different ride and crash...actually, Pst is a good crash. Maybe augment it with an Alpha or a 2002 ride....of course, this is for your kid so if the cymbals are in good/decent shape, they'll suffice. AA hats are good cymbals.O.K, a couple more used kits to choose from, a Ludwig and a Gretsch, opinions please.I am waiting for the Ludwig owner to tell me more about the set.
Beautiful 6 Piece Gretsch Drum set (Catalina Ash Series)
very good Evans Ec2 Coated Drum Heads
Sabian AA Hi hats
Paiste Pst Ride
Saban B8 Crash
Yamaha Single Kick (real nice)
Hi hat stand
i think you did good walking.........Had an interesting experience today guys! I went to a drum store to see some used kits and the store ended up being in the guys basement of his personal home. I walked away from a deal and wanted to know if I made a good decision or should have taken the deal.
The kit was a 2011 Tama Imperialstar (poplar not birch) shell kit $450 (5 piece). The hardware was all new (didn't get the name) and the cymbals were Stagg SH (16" crash,20"rock ride,14"high hats).I looked up the Stagg's and got good reviews.
So all in all everything was included, stands, pedals, throne, cymbals and kit for $800
Deal or No Deal???
