Since you're pretty new here, please understand that we're a cynical bunch at times; we're sensitive about people trying to charge high prices, and we react negatively when we see individuals asking high prices. Your set may well be worth the asking price.

Delusional sellers are all over Reverb and Ebay these days; people asking nearly $2000 for MIJ 60's drums; people asking stupid prices for player's grade sets that have been altered; people trying to get premium prices for very common drums in common finishes. The sellers usually get desperate after a few months and drop their prices. Some don't. A lot of us keep very close tabs on the used and vintage drum market.

In any event, best of luck to you. Maybe you'd like to become a regularl member here and contribute. It sure wouldn't hurt your cause.
Wait, this is coming from one of the drum police who search the internet for dudes asking far too much for vintage drums? I thought you were on a quest to stop this from happening, to keep prices reasonable so us poor folks can afford to buy them. I would say this kit falls in that category.

Very odd market these days, but if someone advertises a price that's in your opinion a little [or a lot] higher than normal, so be it. No one is twisting your arm to buy, but if you do you must have a good reason. I forgot to add; This is the buyers business and no one elses...NO ONE. I shake my head at times but its not due to the asking price, but more because someone actually paid crazy high for it...None of my business.

I do think this set is overpriced, and it's been sitting for a year unsold. If you had read my earlier posts regarding this set, you might have realized what I meant.

So, what's your theory on my Leedy kit? It's clean, pretty much all original and no extra holes. It's been sitting at $800 or make an offer with no bites here or on Reverb.
