Hey Bob! That's a low start bid for 10,500 USD, don't you think?

It would be a cool kit to own.
I can't afford it, LOL
It will be interesting to see what it goes for. Or if it sells.

I understand putting a bit of an extra premium on the kit because Neil played it.

But face it, it's not a kit Neil took on tour, or recorded a Rush album with. He played it once. It's not worth double because Neil used for a day.

Yeah, but it's a DW so you have to inflate the price to start with any way. :P

I'm sniping, $10,500 and one cent. Anymore would be a waste.

The fact that one tom L rod isn't plated in gold is the deal breaker for me!

Actually, given the collectors interest, the custom plated hardware, I don't think the package price is silly crazy, just not for me. I'd be surprised if it wasn't snapped up by a NP fan.

There isn't a NP fan out there that has 10.5k American to blow on a drum kit?
A rich Jazzer will buy the kit just so that he can smash it because Neil played jazz on it. :)

Don't forget that the kits that Buddy played most were White Marine Pearl.

Who would want a 23 inch bass drum?

It was a joke!
I understand the reason for Neil playing that size drum.
This whole thread is a joke.
Neil playing at the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert was a cruel joke.
Someone paying over $10,000 for that kit is a joke!

We should all boycot Dale's for having the nerve to put that kit up on eBay for that price.
It is an insult to the memory of Buddy and to all of the great drummers who played at that show.

That drum kit should be auctioned off for charity with the price starting at what it cost to make at DW. As Bob said it's an embarassment and only lends itself to someones greed, the seller, and someones stupidity, the buyer. The performance was poor.

I agree with the Mayor.
That kit should be auctioned for charity.
That would make it worth it.

Be nice. At least he tried to play something he admits he is not that well versed at, for the whole world to see.

Perhaps Neil will wait til the last seconds of the auction and buy the kit so that it looks like a fan bought it! ;)
Please remember that this thread is all in good fun.
Let's not get ugly.

In all seriousness. To buy that kit new, which I would never do, in Canada would probably be about 8 thousand dollars, before tax, from DW, as a special order.

I figured about the same price for new too.
I don't like all the gold hardware. It's too much!
That kit used is worth about $5000 in this poor economy.

I don't have $10K to spend on a drum set of any kind, but I don't think it's a crazy price when you consider the intangibles. I admired this kit the first time I saw it because I think it looks nice and the modern take on a classic look appeals to me.

Bob, I think you're right: it's some pissed off jazz drummer who going to just burn the frigging thing! (either that or it's Neil...)
