Keep in mind that nothing Donn Bennett sells is ever a bargain. You pay dearly for the celebrity-owned merch.

The guy who buys these will have paid $40k just to tell his house guests that “these timbales were on a beach boys album.”

Even for non-celebrity own stuff as well. I see that he has an LS403TD67WMAVH1, aka the 2009 (Ludwig 100th Anniversary) Alex Van Halen rosewood snare drum listed for $2,995. OUCHIE!!!

I've dealt with Donn in the past. I won't again.

Yeah, hard to justify this purchase/price for something you probably wouldn't play. Does Bennett own them or is he selling for the estate?

Though we all know Blaine, the average Joe doesn't. Not sure one could ever resell these at a later point...

I don't get a good vibe from Bennett either.
