I've been looking for vintage drums that I can fix up and eventually make an orphan kit for myself. I came across a guy out of Rhode Island selling a stripped 14x24 mid 70s Tama Imperialstar (3 ply with rerings). It was a great price but local pick up only. So I figured what the heck and I emailed saying I'd be willing to pay the shipping. He emailed back a day or so later and said he was relisting it with shipping cost so I looked back and found it. The shipping was minimal so I snatched it up. Another day later he emails me again and says he has the 8x12 and 9x13 inch toms too and if I wanted them I could have them at no additional cost or shipping (the toms fit nicely in the bass drum). I thanked him and said absolutley and that that was really cool of him. So the end result was 3/4 of my orphan kit in shells that actually match (age and woodwise) for a grand total of about $45. I think that's a win!
