Most folks have houses but very few have one of Ringo's kits. Maybe for an extra ten large they'd even throw some better hardware in the deal. Anyone with that kind of disposable income to throw around has more money than good sense.

LOL I would only buy that as an investment. But that's a pretty finish, I admit.

I'd buy a house then build the exact same kit for a lot less money.
Call Ringo to sleep over at the new home and while there, he could play your drums!

I don't care for the finish, I'd just slap a coat of paint on them. The house painting can wait.

That's insane. For something Ringo played on a tour in 2006? I think Bennett is hoping Paul Allen will want it...

$150K seems a little low, it 'is' Ringo. I would think at least $200K

Toxteth is actually a fairly decent area now. The riots happended 30+ years ago. This is the sort of stereotyping that Scousers hate.

Fair enough, I don't know, now. I lived there 30+ years ago. Try being a middle-aged non-white female Scouser drummer and talk to me about stereotyping.

My point exactly - castigating an area based on pre-conceived notions from three decades ago, when in really ridiculous amounts of work have been put in by the local community to turn the area around.

Let's agree to differ, and let this thread continue in its original vein.

$150K might get you an outhouse in Los Angeles.

If you're lucky.

What's funny to me is if a company made drum wrap like that nobody would buy it for their drums.
If I wrapped my drum set in that wrap, almost nobody would like it.
And I if tried to sell my drum set that was wrapped like that, nobody would buy it.

Perhaps it isn't really a Ludwig kit but one made by SJC! They seem to make hideous finishes (though I recently saw a member post a gorgeous one) that people flock to.

I was certain that was the reason I'm a drummer to begin with. God knows there's other pursuits in life that are less expensive.

When I watch HGTV and see the crazy prices folks pay on the left coast I just wonder how much money does a person have to make to live in a decent neighborhood.

$150k in the Burgh will get you a nice 3 bedroom home in an "established" neighborhood and a good school district (though if you want new construction the sky's the limit).

Haha I see what you did there.

At the end of the day it's just a standard enough kit (even if custom) with a high cost thanks to someone who played it.

P.s shipping is extra by the looks of the ad!

I'm buying the kit, and photographing it with this lens.

Unless 150k is pocket change for you....you're joking, right?

I'm blown away by young guys who I work with who make big money- a lot of them drive something like a Challenger Hellcat or Range Rover HSE, but they are renting a condo and live paycheck to paycheck because they party so much. F@#€d up priorities.

These aren't iconic drums. Now his original Ludwig's, well, that's another story. I think at times what McCartney's Hofner bass would go for if at auction? The billionaires would be all-in on that one.

It'll buy a house in Idaho. Of course, the housing prices reflect the wages.

Buy the drums then get this mandolin to go with it! I've seen Loar signed mandos go for up to 225 k-bucks, so this one's a steal.
