    Selling my Yamaha Beech Customs. What should I ask? (pics)

    As much as I hate to do it I think I'm going to sell my Beech Customs. They have a few minor dings but nothing major. I think they were made in 2000. Not sure what the color is...kind of a maroonish brown wood grain. Not sure what I should ask for them. They are 8,10,12,14,16,22. Here are a few...

    Fair price...?

    I have an early 2000's Yamaha Stage Custom. The color is matte raven black. The sizes are 10, 12, 14 (rack)...16(floor) and 22x2 bass drums (no snare).

    1970's Ludwig Vistalite? (pic)

    Any idea what a kit like this is worth? All the drums are in good shape. I know a lot of the value depends on the color. There were a lot more clear sets made than any other color.

    Fair price for Yamaha Oak Customs?

    I'm looking at buying a new Yamaha Oak Custom kit (musashi black) from a private seller. Its still in the boxes/plastic and never been assembled. It comes with 22x17 kick, 10x8, and 12x9 mounted toms; and 14x14, 16x16 floor toms (no snare). What sounds like a fair price?
