This was in the original post " I kinda love it, I think, but only time will tell if it's true love"Huh??
I have some 88 model Power Tour Customs I bought them in 88. I recently picked up a couple of Tour series shallower toms to go with them 8x12 and 9x13. I don't care much for power toms anymore. They are from 83 I think, plastic wrapped, with different bearing edges but match my 88s pretty good and sound real good. Those 8000s are some good drums. Congratulations.Found an 80s Yamaha 8000 kit in rough shape about 2 weeks ago. Currently bringing it back to life.
Any idea of what I might ask for them? The badges tell me they're 1984=86. Piano black, players kit. 10, 12, 16, 22. As much as I can polish the chrome and buff out the wrap, they still show plenty of scuffs and scratches, and the batter side bd hoop is likely not original, as it is bare wood and cracked. I'll repair and it will at least be playable till the new owner can replace. Will also need the left spur.Love those 8000 drums. I have a 20, 12, 14 in Natural Wood.
I use this to do my snakes being my keys, for the drum kit and between the stereo guitar pedalboard and the two amps:Not a big deal to most folks, but I just ordered a bunch of new XRL cables. I gang them together in a sort-of snake, for my kit mics, and adding cables for my vocal mic and monitor feed, as well as for the overhead mic. Makes my setup simpler, and a bit neater, so I'm kinda looking forward to updating that tonight.
Had a couple rolls of gaff tape added to the order as well, since it was gonna be free shipping at that point anyway.
Only real way to find out is put 'em up for sale and see if anyone offers you anything. I got a Slingerland kit up on Craigslist right now, and no bites. And I lowered the price, twice. Thinking about splitting up the kit, and selling individual drums.Any idea of what I might ask for them?
