    Default A deal, hummmmm.....maybe

    Thereís a chance I can purchase a use but mint (a was described to me) Pearl master maple complete that someone purchase but decided to continue his main passion for the piano, so if things are true he will let me have it for $1000. It is a friend of a friend and Iíve heard itís a nice set. It has a bass, four Toms, and gear needed to play. Right now Iím playing the Export Exx but just one really nice upgrade would be great. I do love the apple red wrap it has plus Iím the type that normally will buy something a keep it forever. Iím at 100% want but I have not spoken to him as yet. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK.....DEAL OR NO DEAL

    I think that's a pretty good deal. If you want it you should get it, but the Exports are great drums for the price and for your skill level. i don't see a reason to upgrade unless you want to. I'd upgrade your snare or cymbals before upgrading the kick and toms.

    Uh, do/did they even offer it in "apple red" wrap? Something sounds odd...
    Is it the "Red Burst Stripe" wrap?

    I have spoken with the guy today and the color is vermilion red and itís a lacquer not wrap like I mistakenly mentioned earlier. He said that he was going to give it to his 12 year old son but being that my friend told me about it already he would take my Pearl Export Exx and $500 so his son can have a set.

    I would do the deal ASAP , but I would take photos of what would be you old kit and compare the condition and sizes if the New and Maple Drums are sizes you really dig then do it.

    As a side note Skeld the drum hunter says to do it and possibly hi jack a thread

    So OP what size drum are do you have and what sizes and now that we know the Color and it is a finsh not a wrap What are you getting ?

    Cause You are gonna be posting questions about it aren't ya ?

    My friend and the seller came by my house today because the seller wanted to see my Export set ( a very picky person) but was impressed at how excellent the condition was (He actually looks like a young Beethoven) so if everything lines up I will have the maple set tomorrow . The sizes are 22, 16, 10, 12, 8 and said he’s throwing in some other stuff (didn’t say what). If the deal happens “Great”. If not “Blah” Until I have it in my house then it’s a nice deal.
