The kit looks sort of okay, but it’s the poetry of the description that really makes this one different:

A nice piece of kit,but there the'll sit

Till the seller stops, whatever he's been smokin'

If the price were cut in half,it would be less of a laugh.

and out of the basement,the'd be goin'

This isn't drum related, but nonetheless bizarre

About 10 miles from my place, there is a craigslist add for a mummified cat that somebody found in the walls of a local coffee shop.

EDIT: I removed the link, as some may not find the ad or the photos appropriate.

I just found this on my local Craigslist. 18 inch, Medium Thin A Crash. 100.00. Brand new. Seller bought it and said it was too big for his taste, so to the closet it went. It's now on my rack.

This is funny. I like this.

There's a posting around my town for a PDP FS series 6 piece kit. 4 rack toms, 1 floor tom, and 1 bass drum. Guitar Center sells those in a four piece for around $350. This guy's asking for $875, as if the two extra rack toms are worth $525.

This is crazy.....and he is justifying the price with the pedal, so THAT pedal is absorbing 2 years of depreciation and wear of the kit + $50!!!!

Here’s a listing that actually looks pretty cool: “Ludwig vintage 1920's gold snare drum”

Not sure about the price though: $2600

....

It's possible that could be a very good deal, depending on what the cymbals and double pedals are.

Not enough information to go on.

1. Those are not DPD drums.
2. They are not even PDP drums.
3. They are not 7 piece.
4. They are not blue.
5. There is no way those cost $1500.00 new.

Nice try!

Hahahaha!!!! He flipped the bass drum head upside down, read it that way, and called them DPD! Wow, what genius would ever pay $1,500 for that garbage?

Also: There are like 2 DW kits in my town. Only one is that color. What, you think someone's going to just go buy a mismatched 8" tom?

He puts it back up every day or two, but he *has* corrected most of the spelling errors.

Looking For Dedicated/Reliabel Drummer, (35 min). $10.00 per hr
Are you a drummer who wants to perform live?

Are you a drummer who likes music?

Are you a drummer willing to play any kind of music?

Are you a drummer who is at least 35 years of age?

Are you a drummer with transportation?

Are you a drummer who is drug free and doesn't have a restrictive female in your life?

I am looking for a reliable drummer, who is dedicated to music, and can play or is willing to
learn how to play specific parts. Or at least your version of the parts as long as I like it. You will be expected to show up on time and use my drum set. You will be expected to show up on time on Sunday afternoons from 1pm until 4pm, Tuesday evenings from 7pm until 9pm and Thursday evenings from 7pm until 9pm.

I will pay you $10.00 per hour plus a $50.00 song mastering bonus. Once you can play the song completely, five times, and without any errors you will get a $50.00 bonus.

There are 12 songs to learn and master. I can play the drums to them so a dedicated drummer should be able to play them much better than I. You will be paid for Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday on the following Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. This is to insure that you are going to show up. No show no pay.

If music is just a hobby for you please don't waste my time. If you want to be in a pro band and;"go to the top, the very top", I would like to work with you.

You must give me your first and last name and your phone number. I will not respond to just an email. If you have wasted my time in the past I will not respond to you. So sorry but you had your chance.


This dude needs a drum machine

I like how the pic itself is over three years old. Or at least the guy doesn't know how to set the date in his camera.

Of course I wish I knew what I was doing myself and was able to make the attachment clear.

Has anyone else noticed that everyone selling PDP stuff lists it as DW in their headline?? Like anyone is going to be fooled by that.

3200 dollars?! This guy is on crack. I had the exact same model Tama Rockstar in the early 90s. Same color with that same garbage looking wrap.I think I paid 400 dollars when Bush 1 was in office. And it came with some decent Sabian cymbals, crash, ride and hi hats. I don't think the dollar has devalued that much has it??
