Picked up a Mapex Venus kit

Picked up a Mapex Venus kit for $50 on CL yesterday. Very nice lady bought it used for her kid who never used it. Was in a bit rough condition, needs some work and a few new parts (bass drum tom bracket) but it should serve as a nice beater kit. Also came with two cymbal stands and a snare stand. Not sure if I should re wrap it or leave it as is.

Great price and a great beater kit. As GruntersDad said, flip it - but I'm talking about the bass drum. Flip it around with the spurs toward the front, and put the resonant head where it belongs. Now. Looks better, eh?

Yeah I already noticed that when I started stripping it. That pic was the one she posted on CL. I might flip it, I certainly don't need it as I have 3 good kits already, but then I was thinking if I join a band and ever want to leave one at a rehearsal space I'll kick myself for getting rid of it.
