At least it comes with cymbals, hardware and the rack. But no way does he have $2800 in that kit. If he does, he made some really bad deals.

If the hi-hat stand is this nice, do you really need to see the rest of the set?

That was probably the only day the kid played it.

Saw this on Sweden's equivalent to CL (blocket). Tama Imperialstar drums in "good condition", for only 3500 kronor (530 USD). Those toms look so comfy I want to marry them and live with them forever. I'd love to take that snare out for a spin too, unfortunately I've already had diarrhea this year.

I think Craigslist people learn in excrements, not increments.

Default Re: Roland Owners...Here's Your Chance!

http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/msg/3595818148.html

Here's a kit that's tough to resist. The part I liked best was where he expects extra E-cymbals and E-head to be thrown in on the deal. N no off brand stuff...Is it just me or is this a good chance to get rid of that Roland kit in the garage?


i'm in hagerstown thats an hour east of indy right off I-70 on st rd 1 & st rd 38.....if u cant make the drive please dont waste our time because i doubt i can deliver

thinking about trading my drums for an electronic set (no off brand stuff) needs to be a complete set with module ready to play n prefer an extra tom n cymbal or 2

also may trade for a dirt bike or 4 wheeler / quad / atv prefer 2 stroke yamahas but will take any real name brand 2 or 4 stroke no china stuff ...... yamaha suzuki kawasaki honda ktm polaris husqvarna

I just bought the pearl double bass pedal n tama throne from the music store they were $300 n are still like new

I have a vintage set of pearls that are made in japan and have all maple shells with a 22" virgin bass drum (that means there are no tom mounts on the bass drum) a 14" all maple wood snare 13" n 14" rack toms instead of 12" n 13" and a 16" floor tom (needs a new head) also have an 18" pearl world series floor tom that i use with this set....these are old n show signs of many years of use....they can be played as is but the toms need hoops n heads on the bottoms also they are scratched up n could use a new bass drum hoop cause one is messed up

CYMBALS

14" paiste rude hi hats (1000 top 3000 bottom)
8" or 10" sabian b8 pro splash
14" zildjian A series crash
16" zildjian A series crash
20" zildjian scimitar bronze ride
have all stands theyre nothing special just standard stands most are double braced

also have a 15" zildjian K series crash (has been repaired) also has writing on it from a marker 12" and 16" wuhan chinas (also has writing on em from a marker) writing is mostly metal band names n whatnot


call or txt any time 765-524-3O67 u can email me but i rarely check it

Hey don't knock my post!

Just kidding. I wonder sometimes if people are serious about selling stuff on Craigslist. They spell half of the worlds wrong and say stupid things. I don't know that I would buy from a moron- unless it was a really good deal of course.
