This Pacific CX has very little use. It has been restained and Gretsch contoured maple hoops added along with a new 3 position DW butt plate, new mag throw and 42 strand wires. Bob played it and called it one of the best maples he's ever heard. Also liked the chocolate milk antique finish and "worn" look which he said gives the drum "status". Bob's grandpa played with Grady Jones and the Texas Ramrods so Bob has a pretty good idea what's what musically. If you have any questions I'll pass them on to him as soon as his hearing comes back after the explosion in March. Doctor says he should be at 75% in a couple weeks. If you want to buy this drum or make an offer I'd be happy to package it up for you. It will also put a smile on Bob's face. (won't hurt 'cause he's on pain meds) $250 includes shipping to your whereabouts.

WANTED: Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple Drum Set with 20" bass drum, 14" floor tom, 10" & 12" mounted toms and 14" snare.
Prefer Black but will consider other finishes. I don't care if they are scratched up as long as they are in excellent playing shape (bearing edges, etc.). I've wanted this set for a long time and I've decided to get it before my health gets worse and I have to stop playing. I don't have the money for a new set so I'm looking for a used set or one scratched up in shipping.

I would greatly appreciate everybody keeping an eye open and letting me know if you know of one for sale.

Thanks to all...Bill

I've got a 2011 Gretsch Renown 5 pc for sale to anyone near Pittsburgh, PA. I'll travel up to 100 miles to meet halfway but I'm not interested in shipping. Eastern OH, Northern WV and MD, Western and Central PA would be about as far as I'd like to go. Hit me up here via PM for best deal.

Condition of the set is like new/excellent. Drums have been kept in padded cases when not in use in my smoke free home studio. These are pro level drums with 100% N. American maple shells, rims mounts, die cast hoops, Smoke colored Emperors on toms, Coated EMAD on kick, and Gretsch's proprietary silver sealer on the inside of the shells. These are GEN 1 which are considered by many to be as close to a USA Custom kit you can get for half the price. Sizes are as follows: 22x18, 8x7, 10x8, 12x9, 16x14. Floor tom legs and 3 tom holders ARE included.

NOT included: snare, cymbals, or any stands. Price is $900 cash if local pickup and $900 via paypal if meeting halfway.

Here's some pics.

Thanks mate! It is on the way - please let me know what you think.
Your book, "The Drum Curriculum Workbook" is great.
I love the little touches and bits of information. It's concise, clear and takes you along the drumming journey with great suggestions (e.g. tracks to listen to). I've accumulated a pile of drum related books and different books do serve different purposes but this is staying right at the top and will become well used. (y)

I built this snare in early 2010 and the rest of the kit in late 2011, and they've had a great home and excellent care with a career pro who's letting them go after almost a decade. I'm not at all involved in the sale, but I'm posting the link in hopes they'll go to another owner who understands what he/she is getting. Absolutely stunning solid wood with inlays on all the drums, and the wonderful sound of canarywood.
