    Default Masters Premium Maple Redline Opinion needed please

    Hi all, I am toying with the idea of one of these to use as my main gigging kit. It's a Masters Premium Maple Redline which I know are quite rare. (Only one I have seen in the UK)
    The price that the seller is asking is 1,100 for a 22x18 Bass, 12x9 Tom & 16x16 floor in Black on Black. Have asked him for some more detailed pics & if there are any scuffs etc.
    Is this kit worth the asking price? Last Pearl I owned was a lovely MLX a few years ago.

    Some pics of the kit.

    Looks to a bit expensive, there's another MPM (not redline) asking 780 on the 'bay. Depends how much you want it and are prepared to pay for it. What else could you get for 1100?

    Yes, seen the other one but really dislike the finish. Can get the Redline down to 1k but am still thinking Hmmmmmmm. Has been for sale for a while also. I currently have a Saturn III as my gigging kit but am really in two minds about it all.

    Too bad about the price. These drums
    do not come up too often. Very cool.
    So sweet if you could pull it off.

    I don't know anything about valuation in England, but it looks like a fun set to play. Get it!

    If you do strike a deal you will love those drums. 4 years ago I found a Masters Premium 6pc used in perfect condition. The seller special ordered this kit . He also had a BRP same configuration in Ocean Blue sparkle. I got it for $1,350.00. I should have worn a mask because I felt like I stole it!:

    Good Luck I hope you get it!

    Thanks Kevauka, you won’t believe how awesome these drums are. It’s a shame they only made them for 2 years.
