I'm a teen and I'm up all night so right now is mid-day LOL! I do understand though, I always wait until after 10am to call; anything before then or after 9pm is rude! What are you selling?

I had a Yamaha YD drum set that I cleaned up and passed along to one of my students (who saw it on craigslist). The set sounds pretty good. Maybe the caller wrote down the number a few days ago but didn't call until now. It has been off of craigslist for more than a day.

BTW, is Coda a high level drum set?

I was going to contribute to this thread, but after 5 min on CL I figured, whats the point? Its like shooting fish in a barrel, EVERY Sound Percussion, CB, etc. kit I looked at had something laughable in it.

They just want him for his Zilgidans.

Apparently they don't understand physics lol

I have a friend who has played drums for 2 years and has the toms at a 90 degree angle.
It is the biggest P.O.S. Pearl Export I have ever seen. It depresses me

But the tom angles are similar to the Starion kit from the tampa bay ads.

One of his cymbals is a crappy TKO that sounds like a china because of all the dents along the side, one of the bass drum spurs is missing, the heads are a year and a half old and still has the stock resos (the kit itself is about 4 years old) and the bass pedal spring is stretched beyond belief. I had to gig with it once and not only did I want to just put this thing to rest, but I knew I was being judged on the condition it was in. One thing is for sure, it had one of the best kick drum sounds I have EVER heard. That was pretty much all it had going for it.

I don't even bother, if you've been playing drums for 2 years and play a setup like that, there is something terribly wrong with you

http://baltimore.craigslist.org/msg/2143488813.html

Made by TKO This great, affordable 5-piece set is perfect for young beginning and advancing drummers looking for a first 5-piece drum set! This set provides a full 5-piece setup and features the great sound and quality that has made TKO one of the top names in beginner/intermediate drum sets. This drum set is made specifically for smaller drummers (age 7-11) who have advanced beyond the 3-piece drum set stage but are not yet ready for larger, more expensive advanced drum sets. Hi-hat cymbals * Bass mounted cymbal stand & cymbal * Throne & Drumsticks included. This item is slightly used in great condition. One of the Drums has a hole in it that can be replace cheap but the whole does not effect the sound.... a 300 dollar value.... Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns Thanks!!!

Talk about a contradiction.
One word implies that the head is in one piece and the other implies the opposite.
Isn't english stupid?

That is without a doubt the ugliest drum kit that I have ever seen in 40 years of playing and looking at drum porn.
My God Man, What were you thinking when you chose that color scheme?

Those drums certainly are as advertised.... Custom Painted.

They look like an orange creamsicle.
