Ah, ok, I get it. Your search is very specific from a collectors POV. Good luckHi mate- yeah thanks for the tips.
For starters I collect rare and unique metallica items. Im talking cliff burton autographs, stage used items, rare promo posters, etc.
This kit hits the heart- its lars in his best form- its when metallica ruled the world- to me its also the best looking piece of kit ever made. (obviously drums have come along way since)
I was going to buy a kit off someone that did what you have mentioned but when it came to it id rather spend the extra and get the real thing!
besides it being a metallica thing its also the only full signature kit Tama has ever done so its pretty rare!
I would start my search at the Tama forum.Just join up,and check out the forsale wanted section,and make a few posts.
Howdy folks can anyone help me track down one of these powerful beauties?
Im willing to spend the $$$ to get one from any corner of the globe.
True according to that thread but when you are short and use deep toms, you have no choice. Those toms are huge.Yes,but refering to a recent thread, judging from the tom angles,that drummer would suck...just keepin it real.....>>
I sat behind one of those kits when they were new, it was a display on the floor. Now I'm 6' tall, and felt like a munchkin behind the thing. Seriously, a 16" rack tom and 2 18" floors, the kit is ridiculously huge. I will say it does look pretty damn cool though.True according to that thread but when you are short and use deep toms, you have no choice. Those toms are huge.
and the overkill with the weighted cymbal stands and the smallish cymbals
Hi mate,I saw this exact kit for sale on ebay (Australia) for sale a few months ago (some guy from Perth I think). From what I remember, only the snare drum wasn't the real deal.
Not much help I know but I did go through the completed listings to no avail (don't know if it sold or not).
I also love this kit and think it was one of his best- if we all band together across the world I'm sure we can find one dammit!!
