Finally a pro level kit I can keep for yeaaaaaaars to come,and its only a 1 year old Ludwig Classic Maple with bags.
Gettin it for a whoppin $1,000, It matches the exact same sizes and finish to a T that I was looking for, Patients really does pay off!
Yeah, another drummer brother scores a "gently used" pro level kit rather than throw his cash (away) into a lower tiered new kit. Great score. Whether to go L-arm and tom mount. I personally don't like either. I like total flexibility. But if you either like the traditional look or don't want to carry the extra hardware, hey, it's your kit.
