Sadly, the pics aren't showing up for me. It's a good price, not a great steal or anything. I believe the drum goes for around $200-$225 usually, new. So, yeah, you save $50 or so.

Uh, the drum you linked to isn't available in 14x4 (on that site, at least). I'm not trying to be a dick here, just making sure you don't get taken for a ride. If it is what they say it is, that's a good deal, though.

I think this is an older model of the FF. I'm not 100% on that, but it is pretty beat up. I would say this is a mediocre deal. If it was 5 1/2" with no scratches for that price, I would jump all over it.

they look pitted pretty bad...but, my acrolite looked like that, and some steel wool and some crome polish fixed that...

so, if you like piccolo's, i'd say get it..

yeah, im definitly gonna steel wool the rims. but im currently using a 12x3.5 steel picollo, so i think its gonna be a hugeeee difference. i wouldve liked the 14x5.5 as opposed to the 3.5, but for 170 bucks...i dont think its bad

it seems alright but again it is an older version of the Free Floating series by Pearl.

The shell seems newer-ish but i'm not sure.

In terms of great deals, I recently got a Black Panther 13 x 3.5 Birdseye Premium for $100. That deal i had to jump on it. $175 though for a snare seems decent but I guess go for a try if possible to see if you want it.

My verdict: it's an ok price. Though the only beef i had with the Free Floating was that at one point i used a Brass shell Free Floating Pearl snare and the strainer gave me a huge problem.

So good luck with that.
