the set looks fine, especially at that price. It looks like the shipping is all fucked up though, based on the reviews

At that price this is pretty much a perfect little touring kit.
Take all the resos off and stack it like a Matryoshka doll. Throw it in the back of a van cause like, who cares?

$176!?!

I have the distinct feeling I'm buying these before the day is out. And I don't play drums.

I say if you are or plan on being in a band that plays gigs in the near future and you have the space to store them, a drum kit is never bad thing to own.
Especially a beater kit that you don't mind letting other bands use and stuff.

Honestly, maybe this is just my own bad luck here but every occurrence of my selling a kit has been followed, in a matter of weeks, by circumstances in which I needed one like, yesterday. Again, this might just be bad luck but experience tells me that trying to get a good price on a decent quality, fairly complete used drum kit is insanely hard. Drummers always seem to have an exaggerated perception of what their setups cost in the real world, as opposed to how much they have invested in them...

The experience of trying to find one in a pinch has been frustrating enough for me to never want to sell mine, even if it ends up sitting in a closet for 10 years. I'm not going through that ever again. Ever.

All the feedback from 2012 is positive and says they got all boxes. I assume they got their shit worked out.

Plus I applied for the amazon credit card and got another $50 knocked off the total and didn't even have to use the credit card for the purchase. Got the whole shebang for under $130.

BARGAIN!

I did indeed. $127 bucks total. should be here by the 20th.

Package weighs over 130 pounds, makes me really appreciate the free shipping.

Pretty fucking awesome deal.
