Default Latest Score: Stewarts In Orange/Gold

I'm picking these up after Labor Day from a gentleman in the Philly area. They're that orange/gold sparkle in good sizes for me; 12/13/16/22, and in very nice shape. Final negotiated price for the shell pack was $350, which I think was fair considering condition. He agreed to meet me halfway, at a spot we'll agree upon.

I just couldn't bring myself to spend an arm and a leg for any of those ridiculously-priced, beat-up Pittsburgh MIJ sets I brought up last week. You all know how I feel about that situation. Highway robbery.

I think you got a very fair deal.

To me, a good price point for a nice clean set of MIJ drums is right around $300 to $450, so yeah, I like the deal you struck, and he is meeting you halfway. So good all-around I'd say! When I see folks tell us that they got there super clean MIJs for 50 bucks and a 6 pack of Bud...well, let's just say I'm a little bit skeptical!

Very pretty color!

My very first kit as a kid was a set of Stewarts. I think they were a stencil of Pearl. True? Anyway, nice score, sir!

I,ve seen many Stewies on professional stages over the years, and only drummers know the difference, well, some think they do. They sound fabulous!
They sounded every bit as good as anything available. It was [is] the cymbals that I hear first. I can hear a clunker a mile away.

Hi DrumBob!

I think you did good! Condition is everything and the wrap looks great on this kit. My first set of drums, a Lyra kit, had the same orange/gold sparkle.

Got the drums home tonight and here's a photo. They're in superb shape, I think. All they need is a light cleaning and new heads and they'll be ready to gig next weekend. And yes, that towel has got to go! I'll get pre-muffled heads front and back. I have no plans to play it as a five piece, so the 8x12 will probably sit unused, like all my other 12" rack toms.

Hey, I'll take that towel if your getting rid of it!

Seriously, they look great Bob.

I'm sure they'll sound as good as they look on stage. Have a great gig!

Thanks. I'm putting a black head on the front of the bass drum. It'll go well with the orange/gold sparkle. perfect for a Halloween gig. I have a gig locally this coming Tuesday night.

Uh, the towel will be sliced up as rags!

Last night, I realized these drums are gold glass glitter. The sparkle is incredible.
