You normally post treasure. Treasure this does not appear to be. Either you are messing with us or you found something. So I have 2 guesses. It's either some junk beginner thing you got for free or you found something like Enzo Ferrari's personal kit (he might have drummed, I dunno) in the attic of the Scuderia factory in Maranello.

It was local & I made a bid on it whilst drunk the other night. Then, forgot about it. Won it for £20. I do have plans for it though :) Normal service "May" be resumed tomorrow if I win the kit I am after :)

That's one of the best drumset acquisition storys ever!

I do wonder what it is. The arms say Pearl but the spurs say Tama.

Took me a while.......... It's a Stagg TIM+ Doesn't make it any more likeable :D Started work on it yesterday. The Chrome is all mint & cleans up like new :) The shells are like Balsa Wood, they are that thin :D Superb bearing edges though. Sanding them down is difficult as the shells seem like they are impregnated with some sort of gooey resin & instantly clogs up the sandpaper. Paint thinners & wire wool it is then...............

Picked up a Zildjian 18” K dark thin crash yesterday. Based on my initial impressions, this looks to be the beginnings of a K addiction for me.

Absolutely beautiful, and I'm generally not a fan of green drums. The depth difference between the FT's is a little odd visually, but as long as they sound like they belong together, then all's well. :)

The finish really works on this kit :) This was an Artist Endorser kit (Circa Waves) & made to his specifics. Had a quick go on them & the separation is phenomenal. Also makes for different set ups depending on the music. Will sound great as is, or, with the 12 & 14, the 12 & 16 to the 14 & 16 :)

Boy, that kit has everything going for it: beautiful finish, lovely lugs, and I really like those badges. The floor tom sizes look odd to me, too, but I could certainly live with it. Congrats on bagging another FINE set of drums.
