Default I found another gem!!

I went into the same Pawn shop that I went to a few week ago ( the one that had the DW Jazz Series snare for super cheap) today after work and I came across two more gems! Someone had brought in not one, but 2 DW Edge snares, one 6x12 with white powder coated hardware and the other one was a very special one. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it! It was a Neil Peart R30 30th anniversary Edge with Black Mirra finish and 24kt gold hardware, and it was in great condition... just a little dusty and in need of a good cleaning. They only want $219 for the 6x12 which I'm most likely gonna get as well, but they only wanted $499 for the R30! The lowest that I've ever seen one go for was $1000 with most selling between $1200-1500. I told him that the price was a little too high, and we settled on $420. I out it on layaway. (Layaway is the best way to get things I want, being a single father with 2 kids... especially around the holidays)

I know that some here don't like threads with layaway or a long wait, but I had to tell some drummer friends that would understand my excitement. I had left my phone at work so I didn't get a picture of it, but it's a beauty! Below are a few a links to 2 on the bay just like it though!.
