Default Shells cost me $100

Well I picked the bass drum and the tom for $100, I prob got ripped in the process but since I sold my old kit I needed something to fill the void for now. They are Tama Rockstars, I think the custom series. They are a blue lacquer finish. Apparently the guy who owned them got into a car wreck and these are the only two drums to survive. Sorry about the bad quality, it's taken with my camera phone.

That's all you need, I'm sure they sound good too- I'd surely drop a hundred bucks on it.

that kick sounds awsome, I know, I have one ;). And that's a pretty nice price for what you got.

Thats a nice little Hiphop kit right there. plenty to practice on.


One of my bands guitarist got into a wreck with his whole guitar rig, the only thing that survived was his amp head, cab, guitar, everything lost.

Yeah, hes now just the frontman. lol

Hey man, with good heads (and it looks like the bass already has that) those drums will go anywhere you need to go musically. The only thing I'd do differently with that kit is replace the snare head - I've got an Acro, and IMHO it just wants to SING; I don't think it can do that with a Pinstripe. Excellent, functional kit though.

The pinstripe wasn't my idea nor do I even like it at all. I just recently traded an old guitar for the snare, and just haven't gotten around to replacing the head yet.

You didn't get ripped. Those are decent drums, and for what you paid - you probably got a deal on that stuff. Getting used drums is a great thing.

The old Rockstars are actually rather good drums. I especially like the finish and there's certainly plenty of potential in those shells, so you actually got a good price for them. Nice to see an Acrolite too, all in all a nice set. Well made and with the right preparation work could sound very good indeed.
