Default used DW kit & ZBT cymbals for 30K ?!?

Came across this ad on Craigslist today; guy wants 30K for a used DW kit, gold Gibraltar hardware and Zildjian ZBT cymbals. They were supposedly made for a famous drummer..but that info is a secret.

The Exotic finish is Twisted Tropical Olive, which is no longer available. Aside from that, I wish the seller all the best in garnering the asking price (tongue in cheek).

I wonder if he'd sell the ZBT's separately for 5 K?

A lowball offer like that would be insulting don't you think? I mean come on, $5K for all those cymbals? :)

He did say genuine gold. Doesn't that add at least 50k to the kit and ZBTs being in the presence of such perfection.....priceless!

Meh, my compeltely BS vote would be $5K for everything and maybe something closer to $10K with signed proof of use etc. by said famous drummer depending on who the cat is......

Maybe he meant that the cymbals were actual gold plates.

I would argue that the craigslist add and the promo picture show the same set, just with very different light.

Seriously though, isn't there a law that prohibits ZTB's from being used with higher-end drums?

For such an 'incredible sounding kit', why all the Moongel positioned on each drum??

This thread reminded me to look at CL today...

There should be a Humane Society, but for drums. Someone needs to rescue these.

Either that, or send them out to the farm.

I see the seller has dropped the price down to $29K. Must not be offering the throne with the kit now.

I'm going to e-mail him tomorrow as a "serious buyer" and try to find out who this "mysterious famous drummer" is.

This is Twisted Tropical Olive:


The kit in the ad is Twisted Rainbow:

I think you nailed it. Same Twisted Rainbow finish with gold hardware, same gold Gibraltar rack with curved riser bars, same set configuration, same gold DW badges. Looks like this is the kit.

I guess if you are a big Chicago fan, then this may be something you want, but surely not for $30k, or even the sale price of $29k.

Just for posterity purposes, here are images of the kit for sale:

LOL!

The seller states in the ad that, "the set sounds incredible". I think the seller should have spent some time photoshopping out all the layers of moon gel before that statement was made. Then again, this whole ad is pretty hilarious!

But he swapped to Evans heads.......the famous guy played Remos.....but the Evans...man they sound great with 10oz of gel stuck to each one......

Seriously 3 gels per batter head? What's in the bass drum for muffling, a dead body?

Here's a more driver's seat perspective which seems to make the case.

This thread is seriously missing the DW defender to yell at all of us and tell us to stop picking on DW drums.

It's still a funny thread but it is sadly incomplete with him.

Gold is $2,188 an ounce today, so I think the kit is a real bargain. Besides those hoops would be way too soft to stay tuned, so you'll want to rip them off anyway!

Here's another set played by a famous drummer in a famous band. However, a slightly more reasonable price. ;-)

He's listing it as a 20pc---obviously not a drummer---and the hardware is corroded! The sad thing is he will probably find some even more clueless idiot to buy it :(

Wow... There's 22 full visible moongels in one of those pictures above. Why doesn't he just hit a cardboard box?

I still think there is a dead body in the bass for sound "deadening".....since the gels wouldn't stick to the vertical surface and all....

Oh and when played with Chicago (assuming that is the right guy) I don't see the metric ton of gel used......

I still think you guys are over-reacting to the price. I already pointed out that there's over 25 US dollars in moongels alone* on the kit so you really can't lose.

*(assuming $6.99 per 6 pack and averaged)
