    I'm considering buying a set of 20,12,16 Dayton Rogers in red sparkle and need your opinions on what would be a great, a good and a fair price. And how much you'd never pay, but considering the fact that I'm in Europe!
    Thank you!

    I’d reckon you’re going to have to have some pics or at least a description of kit you speak of to have any idea of pricing.

    Yes, the set allready is in Europe where old American made drums are much more rare and therefore usually cost a lot more. Here´s a pic that I´ve gotten to look at. Seller says there´s some snare rash on the 12" and corrosion on the screws /washers inside the drums.

    I'd be asking for a lot more photos. Close-ups of anything they're saying is bad. From this shot they look like they haven't been monkeyed with but good to see the insides, and details.

    here are some pics of the rash and the inside screws. I´m just looking for general information pricewise since I don´t really have any clue... 4e65dde7-e536-48af-acd9-fe492cf05c5c.jpg b5bb6707-72da-48f9-8914-cb00b80ac177.jpg

    without seeing any details of the other drums, I'd offer this advice:
    Pay what you feel you can afford paying. Don't justify the purchase if it doesn't feel right.

    Here in the states those drums sell in the range of $800-$1200
