Dig my little brother's Christmas surprise :)

So I was browsing Craigslist the other day and saw this kit that is gonna be perfect for my 11 year old brother. He just started playing drums this year at school. Couldn't pass it up!

There are no badges on them but if I had to guess... well judging by the hardware it looks like a mid 80's-90's CB/Pearl kit that got (professionally) rewrapped at some point, or is somehow in immaculate condition. The drums are quite thin and the bearing edges (I'm using that term loosely here) are rounded over. Maybe someone can spot what they are?

Came with literally everything you see, except the jazz festival posters; all hardware and stands, cymbals, throne, even sticks and a practice pad!

Also, anyone wanna guess what I paid?

I say $200 no more. that's a massive kit for a little 11 year old. I think you'll be just breaking it in too, I bet...

I paid $350, Larry. The pedal is nicer than the one I'm gigging with, as is the bigger cymbal stand, and everything is super clean. I consider it a fair price. I knew the guy or I would have tried to heckle him down. Also some of the stuff he gave me wasn't part of the deal so I wasn't going to complain.

Well he loves it! My parents gave me a Q3 for Christmas... I'll have to get some footage of him playing and post it here :)

I set him up with some coated ambassadors all the way around and coated powerstroke 3's on the bass drum. To be quite honest, it sounds good!

Imagine his head will explode when he sees that. Then your ear drums. Nice gift. You are changing a life there you know.
