from craigslist:

The kit here is broken down in a normal way, but I'm adding this for worst pic ever. Too bad, cuz it's a Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute.
You'd have be a moron, a thief, or both to attempt selling a $4k kit with such a ****ty pic. Btw, he says "make an offer" in the ad. I'm leaning towards him being a moron-thief. But I'm cynical.

Hey... that Linndrum is quite allright I know I love using mine.

on the weird toms.... well I actually know a guy who plays like that, he plays pretty well but he learned it the way he set it up and that is with a big wide gaping hole between the two mounted toms.. I can't play on his kit, but he can and I've been saying for years man would you set that up a bit more practical, but he refuses.

Me I got my own preference and it goes like this...

WOAH man WOAH!!!....take that thing back about "chix"....that is mean and sexist....ever heard of Kim Thompson, Cindy Blackman, Terri Lyne Carrington, Cora Coleman-Dunham, Sheila E., Vera Figueiredo, Camille Gainer, Evelyn Glennie,Carola Grey, Susie Ibarra, Hilary Jones, Sherrie Maricle, Steffi Skolik....

let's see your kit and hear some of your playing.....sorry to be an ass, but that was really out of line man, so I am calling you out.....

Most of these kits are (obviously) not being played... they probably ended up with someone who doesn't play drums/care to play drums, and are just being sold off.

Lets see some (terrible) kits with people playin'!

The pics are funny to me either way. It's goofy and lazy for a seller to post a pic of his kit looking the worst and least playable that it can.

Here's one kit that the owner quite possibly never used. Ironically, the setup is reasonably playable, for a change.
