Haha. Yeah.. They aren't bad drums.. I've recorded with them and they sound great on the recording... I would just like to own a set that's higher quality... And with hard cases and a rack thrown in... $1350 sounds like an amazing deal... I REALLY hope i can come up with the dough..

Dude, I would work my ass off to get the dough for this deal if I were you.

The Yammies are pretty damn good drums, but Luddy Classic Maples are pretty amazing I've heard.

K i asked him again on the price and since I don't need the rack.. I got him to take it and the cymbal stand off... So Its $1100 for the drums and the cases... And I am gonna work REALLY hard to get it...

Here a similar kit on ebay with bin at $1800, and opening bid at $1200. So you're looking at a good deal.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Ludwig-Classic-Mapl ... dZViewItem

Should you buy is another question all together. I have the same set of yammies and have been very happy with their quality and sound. I'm not even close to getting tired of them.

If you sold the yammies, you could probably get around $400 for the shell pack. So to me the question would be, do I get $950 ($1350 - $400)of added enjoyment out of the Ludwigs? If yes go for it, its a great deal. If no, save your money.

If you just gotta have them, I know that feeling too! :)
