OMG. I seriously laughed for like a minute when I saw this one. The tom sticking up is like 'beeeeeeeew!' BTW, I think the beater is actually aimed at the floor tom shell!
My favorite one so far!!!

Here's one where the drummer actually must've played the kit setup the way it looks. Unless he or she is around 7'6", I don't see how it makes any kind of ergonomic sense. The toms are about 5 feet off the ground, snare in the wrong place, cymbals all weird...

Don't know why this person got a new kit after owning this killer.
AD reads

I am asking $350 or best offer on this set. It has a custom built rack, 7pcs and one will need one new head, and no symbals are included. The set is in great shape only selling cause our drummer got a new set. So it's $350 or best offer, don't hesitate to make an offer thanks!

1 bass drum
2 bass drum pedal
3 snare
4 snare stand
5 rack 1
6 rack 2
7 floor
8 hi hat top
9 hi hat bottom
10 hi hat stand

It's actually a 12 piece kit but I guess they didn't want to sound too pretentious.

Looks like it could be a blue sparkle ludwig with the usual ****ty B8's. If it's an older Luddy and the price is right, grab that sucker.

Subtle, but effective in making it pretty damn hard to play.
Try doing a fast roll on those toms.

What is great about ads like this is the people selling them will add up the retail price of EVERYTHING, sticks, bags, dampeners. Then when they have a 17 piece kit, (5 Piece in real standards) they will price it for well over any realistic price and try to make people think they are getting a screaming deal! Who want's to start a craigslist drum police academy?!?!

somehow i've been on this site for a few years and never checked the drum forum until this week. i love this thread!

i actually did a "tutorial" on setting up drums for the interns at a studio i used to work at because it pained me to see the ridiculous ways they would set the house kit up before artists walked in.

Guys...

Playing drums and selling drums are two totally different things.

If you really look at the pictures, you will see that most of them are "set up" to show every element of the kit.

And personally, if I were looking to buy a used kit, that's the way I would prefer to see them...
