There was a mid-late 60s Ludwig gold sparkle kit w/ matching canister seat, Zildjian cymbals, and a Rogers Dynasonic snare. It needed a lot of restorative work including replacing missing hardware pieces, bringing two of the shells back into round, and shell delamination issues.
The guy wanted near pristine collector money for it. No one came close to that and I found out later that he got in a pinch and he ended up selling everything for less than $350.
I’m curious to know what he was originally asking
He told me turned town offers of $1,200 and $1,400. I told him he should've taken one of the offers because I was nowhere that kind of money. Water damage+out of round shells+ply separation+missing hardware = lots of time and money.
