    Default Not a very good fade...

    I'm not trying to be a hater, but I kind of wanted some more opinions on these drums to see if I was the only one that felt the way I do. Frankly, this is one of the worst fades I have ever seen on a drum kit.

    The guy had been trying to sell this kit on craigslist for quite a while. Blue and grey are great colors here, but to call this a fade is a bit misleading.

    I looked up that capone kit that you were talking about, and I am going to have to revise my statement. The capone kit is the worst fade ever, and this one is the second worst.

    Ugh! No kit should have to go through life with a finish that horrible.

    Is there any surprise that South Park is on the tv in the background?

    As for the AHA....well.....even though they're out of business, their reputation precedes them......uh, no. This could be the proverbial straw that finally did them in.

    Then again, the buyer must've choosen to go with a hard transition. That can't be an accident.

    I love how no matter what happens on the PDF, the Capone kit manages to sneak its way back into the conversation. Whoever built that set is an honest genious, he's probably recieved more marketing for his brand just through viral internet mockery than any other no-name builder out there. You may not buy Capone after seeing it sparkling on the NAMM floor, but you'll sure remember the brand. Even poo can sparkle if you've recently eaten glitter.
