i wouldnt pay 900 for it...its nothing more than a beginner kit in my cymbals, not real expensive drums, and what the hell are "professionally muffled" drums? to me they look like the remo foam muffling inserts, but i could be wrong. i wouldnt buy them but its not up to me as im not searching for a new set.

i aint too quick on USD but $900 is roughly about £450 putting like tha t yeah i would pay about £400max so try and take it to around 750 - 800. good luck.

thats if your a beginner - average drummer. if not i wouldnt bother the pedal doesnt have a plate on the bottom so will be lousy if your a hard hitter. dunno what the heads are but probably need replaced. the kit looks like a good cleaning is in order. the hihat looks a bit flimsy. so an upgrade to harder thicker hardware.

i dunno if you have a biginner kit then i would go for it. but if not i wouldnt bother.

There's tons of Tam Rockstar stuff on eBay for pretty low bucks. Even when you consider the gibralt er rack that is included in your deal and the semi-pro cymbals, $900.00 for that whole setup seems a little bit steep. I'd offer the guy 650 for the whole kit and if he says no, I'd keep looking, I think you can do better for the $$$

Yeah this is not a good deal.

You can do much better.

I wouldnt even make a counter offer. If he wants 900 he overvalues this kit to the point iw would be pointless to negotiate.

Dont get too anxious. Wait it out.. .fine a good deal. Dont be sorry afterwards.

For 930 you could have this:

Gretsch Drums Catalina Ash Fusion Shell Pack with Free 8 Tom ... sku=445671

With This: ... sku=448968

Hardware Pack

And this: ... ku=445950X

Thats new. And a better kit.
