I love good stories like this. Congrats, but I troll the Goodwill stores everywhere and have never encountered drums. DW Deal of the Year, so far...

Nice, I've never seen anything like that when I'm at Goodwill! Was it just luck of the draw or did someone tip you off that it was there?

Both kinda, I was dropping off an old bed room set for donation and I saw the drums sitting in the loading area and asked what was up with them. They weren't on the floor yet and hadn't been priced. I asked what they wanted for them and the guy said $200. I said "ok" and then he said "If you're serous about buying them, I'll let you have them for $150." I said "deal!"

Awesome find! My old man went into a Goodwill in my town about 12 years ago, and sitting in a box in the corner, was a fully disassembled 1960's Slingerland 6-lug silver sparkle snare...for $10! It's a great drum.

$10 Slingerland snare? nice.

So the lesson of this story is to hang out near the loading dock area of your local Goodwill donation center.
