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.
Please tell me that was on purpose... ;)

I know Gruntersdad collects misspelled brands and parts - this one takes the cake. He actually misspells "cymbals" in two different ways. No photos, unfortunately. From Boise Craigslist:

DRUMS CB 700. OBO - $150 (KUNA)
I'm moving and don't have room for these. I have the base, the floor Tom and 2 mounded tons as well as a double base petal and sybal petal. No symbols or snare asking $150.00 OBO for the remainder of the set. Please call or text 208-XXX-XXXX thank you and have a great day. Can send pics. Also these drums have Evans skins on them.
NO SPAME OR BOTS

A stunning one indeed!

By the way, I notice some say skins, some say heads. Is that a question of
USA vs Australia vs Europe, or do all use both names equally?

It's not a Vs thing at all.It's simply and AKA or slang term.Before the early 60's,drum heads WERE animal skins,and counter hoops were know as FLESH hoops.Then the Remo mylar drum HEAD was invented.You really can't accurately call a piece of plastic film a skin,but some still do.

The same as a lot of different drum terminology.Bass drums were being called kick drums,a term which started in recording studios that differentiated a bass guitar from a bass drum on a mixing board label.Bass drums were always played with a beater,and NOT kicked as some would say.Most if not all drum companies use the term bass drum,and NOT kick.Ludwig,Tama,ect.

The same with "rack tom" A term used when drums racks were in their hayday.Most if not all drums companies STLL use the term mounted tom or tom tom.Ludwig,Tama ect.

Drums were also know as "tubs",trap sets,traps,the skins.Cymbals were also known as plates or pies.

Thanks :). So skins would just be the old school name coming from the times
when skins actually were skins.

Yeah I hate when people say kick drum. I know it provides some clarity, but to me
it sounds kind of insulting.

I wonder where the term 'tom' (let alone 'tom tom') comes from, anyway...!
...Wikipedia says:
Although "tom-tom" is the British term for a child's toy drum, the name came originally from the Anglo-Indian and Sinhala, the tom-tom itself comes from Asian or Native American cultures. The tom-tom drum is also a traditional means of communication. The tom-tom drum was added to the drum kit in the early part of the 20th century.

Now here’s a puzzler. Is it a typo or not?

Are they looking for a “kick ass” drummer, or, as written, a “kiss ass” drummer?

LOL - drums for a car, or an arcade game....

Quote:
I have a one year old burgundy 5 piece drum set for sale or trade. The set is in near mint condition. I also have an extra set of heads for the drums. The drums are Groove Percussion made by Gretsch drums. The set comes with upgraded Sabian symbols. The symbols alone were $300. Drum come complete with a throne. The drums are set up so you can try them out. Asking $500 OBO. Would trade for working pinball & arcade games. Would also trade for any type of car. Let me know what you have. Thanks
He can't confirm it was used by Yes?? Say it ain't so!

Quote:
Large drum case 37"x16"x30" stenciled with "yes" logo. Custom built by Humes & Berg Chicago. Heavy 3/4" base with solid rubber s casters. Rolls beautifully. 5 compartments inside for cymbals stands and drums. Great condition. Cannot confirm this was used by the band but the size and quality of this case says professional. I played drums in a band for 6 years and never used this case because it is just too BIG and I don't have roadies. $80.
Yes - these are certainly worth the $75 he is asking for!

Quote:
Drums misc 70's Mad in Japan. - $75

Metal Flake Orange but the Floor Tom is peeling. Willing to Trade for any guitar fender, or effects, amps Vox, Orange or tube only, but I also have a bass drums pedal and extra bass drum black, no name but sounds great. W/an older Drum throne as seen in pics also the Peeling you can see in the one picture on the Floor Tom. Real cool look though. OPEN TO ANY MUSIC TRADES THOUGH, THE WORSE IS I CAN SAY NO, AND NO LOW BALLERS. These are from the 70's and worth the money I'm asking. Thanks a lot.

Sick Drumset Brah



Quote:
I'm not a drummer, but I can appreciate the sound of someone really bringing some heat down on a set of drums.

My friend said I've got a pretty decent set up here that I'm selling..

Siabian Cymbals on a Pearl Tower, a Pearl snare, a no named snare, and a bass one made by a company called CP..

5 in total.. There is a double pedal for the bass drum, but the second pedal is missing.. Also I think you'll need a metal bar to mount the drums on top of each other.

Otherwise the heads are in pretty nice shape.. The pictures will do a better job describing them then I will.

250 O.B.O
Sorry Brah, but your friend is wrong.

Oh man, this is my finish too



Quote:
DW Collector's Series Drum Set complete with hardware and cymbals.

Everything included! This is a rare opportunity to own a high quality, rarely used Collector's Series kit in great condition, with all the hard ware and top of the line extras included. In addition to the 5 piece kit you get:
General Value:
DW Double Tom Stand w/ Cymbal ($ 190)

Zildjian Thin Crash ($ 200)

Sabian B8 Ride ($ 115-120)

Ludwig Cymbal Stand ($ 61)

DW Double Cymbal Stand ($ 230)

DW Double Tom Stand ($ 150)

Pork Pie Drum Stool ($ 160)

Tama Tom & Cymbal Stand ($ 111-120)

DW 5000 High Hat Stand ($ 220)

Ludwig Cymbal Stand ($ 75)

DW Drums Collectors Series (5 p) ($ 4,500- $4,875)

Drum Workshop Snare ($ 585)

DW Snare Drum Stand ($ 80)

A $ 6,700 total value for only $ 3,000!

Oh yeah, comes with "top of the line extras" like that nice Sabian B8 ride there. That will match the down right silly tom placement and angles.

To make matters worse, this is the finish of my DW's which I love. Its like watching my set be tortured. Perhaps I should save them?

OK, technically this isn't Craigslist. It's from shopgoodwill, which is probably worse as far as people having no clue. Does anyone recognize this brand?
