  • W00T - Got a Great Deal **I Think**

    Well I have not owned a drum set since I sold my 11 piece Pearl set back in 1985 to help purchase my first car. I made the mistake of buying the video game Rock Band for my teenagers. As a result, I got bit really hard by the drum-fever bug. I went and demoed several kits at Guitar Center and came really close to buying a TD12 kit. However, I decided to wait and keep checking the local classifieds. I am glad I did because I scored my new set tonight

    It is the older V10 series but at least it has the expansion card in it. The set is mint, and I mean mint. There is not a single scratch anywhere on it and the heads look brand new. I bought it off a guy that has a little studio set up in his townhouse where he recorded and mixed his own music. It still has all the manuals, boxes, and original 6k receipt from Sweetwater. I got it for $1800 and it included the throne and an iron cobra pedal. I think I got a very good deal, what do you guys/gals think.

    I am glad to be back in the saddle again. I will be setting it up tomorrow. I cant wait to start practicing again

    Oh yeah, I forgot... Hi - My name is Chris. I look forward to making some new friends on here.

    Yes that is about the best you could have hoped for in price. If that kit auctioned on eBay it would have fetched $2200 to $2500 from a decent seller.

      A good deal, indeed. And RED, too!

      Congrats on your purchase, and welcome to our little club.

                Hey Chris,

                Welcome to the forum from the other side of the world. You got a great buy there.

                It's nice to see another returnee to the drum world - I gave it away in 1986 and have recently returned to the throne so I look forward to hearing how you're progressing. And yes, more pics please.
