    Him: "See that drummer? He's no good."

    Me: "How can you tell? He's just setting up."

    Him: "He's tossing his drums around like they're junk. Any musician who doesn't respect his instrument isn't any good."
    It's true. My father and grandfather always said to judge a man by how he treats and keeps his tools.

    I think your father and grandfather were right. Drums are inanimate objects without feelings or minds. I get that. I think the main reason that you respect your instrument is to honor two kinds of people: those who cannot afford what you have and those who always wanted to play drums but never got the chance.

    I have a few battle scars on my drums from touring. I even had to replace an entire shell once. It hurts when it happens, but then I get over it.

    I find it amusing how gearheads like ourselves cringe at such things happening, but some guitarists actually play extra to have their guitar intentionally abused to have some sort of character. That's as cheesy to me as someone who buys brand new jeans with holes in them.

    I just wonder how the damage happened. Fall over with out the hoop on? Really, how double you damage the edge on any drum with out destroying the hoop?

    Someone should ask the seller some questions , This is a nice kit and Yes Things happen to musical equipment. I will raise a 3rd hand on the drum heads.
    1. Are you the owner who damaged the shell?
    2. How did such a nice set get some run down and have heads all out of sorts?
    3. Divine Sentiment would have treated them better and could have explained how to be more careful!

    That being said I think We all agree the better drummers try to respect any drum set be it any export or a masterworks , And things do happen out live.

    Now Who is going to ask the seller "What the Hell Happened" ?

    This type of damage could also come from an owner than never earned them in the first place.
