Drums for sale

I am actively selling off my childhood-into-early-adulthood. So, unbar the basement door! All memories must go!


Pearl Fiberglass Drum Kit
Four piece, black, 1980’s-vintage drum kit with cymbals, stands and hardware (plus cymbal and hardware cases).

Specs, drums: kick drum, 22×14″; floor tom, 16×16″; rack tom, 13×9″; Pearl snare, 14×5″.
Specs, cymbals: Sabian 23″ ride; 14″ hi-hats, 16″ crash and 12″ splash; Wuhan 18″ China.

All corresponding hardware included: multiple, double-braced Pearl (standard) and Rogers (boom) cymbal stands, plus kick pedal and hi-hat stand/pedal, drum keys, etc.

Kit was purchased in the last year of the Pearl fiberglass run, from 1973-1983. Despite years, kit has been played relatively little and the set could serve as a solid secondary/home kit, a club’s open mic kit, or as a very playable beginner’s/youth set-up; that said, this kit has been played out as recently as last Christmas. Very little exterior surface marking, aside from some minor scrapes/nicks. Cymbals are in very good shape; like kit, they need a TLC cleaning. New top heads needed. Stands are in great shape and, with the cymbals, are probably worth as much as the kit, itself. Original owner of all pieces.

Have researched prices online and at Drum HQ and would like $500.00 for the whole lot. Would prefer not to sell in parts.

(I also have a set of both congas and bongos, each with stands, fwiw. Tell your hippie friends.)

Please pass along, if you know of a potential interested party. Thanks.
