    I would say yes on the 24" bass, the 18" FT and the snare alone! Not meaning those three are worth that much but they're part of it.

    I'd love to own them that's for sure.

    I knew the sizes made them more expensive. I just wasn't sure in a vision series was worth that much used.

    I see masters kits come up with stands for around what the asking price is for that kit. Smaller sizes of course, usually a 22" kick with a 14" or 16" floor and 10" and 12" racks. They might also have been birch shells, never payed that much attention to them since I can't afford them anyways lol

    But I found a REAL deal here https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/msg/5952411900.html

    I used some contact cleaner that my guitar player uses on his stuff. It made a difference but it still cracks a bit.

    My bad. In my ignorance I ignored the " vision ". Seeing the snare my brain was thinking the kit was Masters series!

    I though it was at first as well. But I did a really quick search and it seems those sizes would be about right in the $1000 range depending on what the snare is worth. I just guessed it in the $300 range.

    But none of this talk changes the fact that I cannot afford them

    Just my .02, but unless I had to have those sizes, I wouldn't pay that much. Maybe like BA said, I would go 1000.00 tops given they have cases and all.

    And I totally get Fullers perspective....we all like to look and dream regardless of whether we can buy or not

    The compression pot had been broken at some point in its life (pieces fell out when I cleaned it), but we don't use it anyways so no big deal.

    I think it's just time for a new amp. I bought this one used about 8 years ago i think. My wife wants something smaller anyways so she can actually pick it up. Not that an Ibanez sound wave 25 is that big, my wife is just rather short lol.

    I'm looking at a fender rumble 15. My step dad has an older one and it sounds pretty good and has some volume for such a small amp. Depends on what we can afford though, the wife wants a new amp, not another used one.

    My wife keeps getting on me for buying drum stuff as it is, let alone a $1500 shell pack lol. I just had to fix her bass amp last night as it quite working (just a bad connection luckily) but it makes nice crackly noises when adjusting anything even after cleaning, so I guess my next gear purchase will be a new amp for her. At least she only wants a little practice amp like fender rumble 15.
    Behringer makes a pretty decent 15 watt bass amp. They run about $80 new. I bought one about ten years ago and it works well. I actually own several Behringer amps. I've got the larger size 300 watt bass amp, too.

    Edit: I just noticed that $80 is about the same price as the Fender Rumble 15. I'd probably go with the more established brand (Fender) then, but I have to say that I do like the Behringer amps I own. I even have the Blue Devil guitar modeling amp that is nice because it is versatile.
