Default yellow vistalite drum set. Whats it worth?

What is my yellow vistalite drum set worth? It's a three piece set with remo heads, original snare and cymbal stands. It's been used but it has the original cases and my kid wants to trade it for a newer set. One of the serial numbers on one of the toms is 1539573. The bass is 22 and the toms are 14 x 10

Wanna add a little more info., like what year, maybe sizes of drums, etc. New Bonham kits run (or people ask) about $2000. I think you can score them cheaper than that. That's for 26, 14, 16, 18. Smaller kits ..... well ..... lower prices. A virgin kick is worth more than a kick with a tom mount. And then there's spider cracks to be concerned about, and rash on the shells.

The bass is 22.5 inches wide and the toms are 14. I don't know what year they were made but the junior college I bought them from bought them new. I'm thinking they are original because of the serial numbers (1539573) on the tom and the fact that the b&o badges have the sharp corner on the top right side of the badges like the ones from the early 70's but also has the serial number on them and were started in 69 and carried over into the 70's.

22" kicks are the run-of-the-mill stuff. Your floor tom, if it's a 14x14, is your cash cow. If your toms are both 14x10, that's kinda too bad ..... being not a great selling point. Here's a 16x16 http://www.ebay.com/itm/70s-LUDWIG-1...#ht_4364wt_952 at $395, and no bites. A kit here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Absolutely-S...3#ht_691wt_952 sitting at $710.
If you really want to sell your kit, I'd sell the individual pieces. The floor (if it's a 14x14) might fetch as much as the kick and rack, combined. 16 and 18 inch floors are much more common.

I guess the ludwig vistalite set is yellow and not amber. My mistake since I didn't know they made them in yellow.
