they've taken some pretty serious hits form the guy i bought em from, but no visible damage except your basic loss of luster. i took em to Guitar Center and they assessed all three for $170. i walked right out. i know i can get more for them. new they would cost more than that a piece.
the guy told me to polish them up before trying to sell them.

why not ebay? if you set up an auction for each cymbal and start the price for each cymbal at let's say $150. I'm sure people will bid and jack up the price on each of them. your looking at $450+, maybe even $500. to $600.

I would sell them in three separate ebay auctions. You will find more buyers that way and will maximize your $$$$. Selling them as a group limits your customer base because some can't afford the whole shebang, or thaty don't need em all. Cheers

Man find some sucker kid dont cheat him but find somebody that will give you more. Theres always someone who will. YOu have to be a pretty decent salesman though stand behind what your selling no matter what! Try to make the Pros more noticable than the Cons.
