Default Camco L.A. Moss Green eBay 9K!!!

Found this kit on eBay. Seller asking $9K BIN. Is it really worth this? I'm thinking wife is saying "you need to get rid of some drums". "OK, no problem"...I'll just price it high so it won't sell.

Then, again, am I just out of touch with Camco drums and this configuration? 12/14/18 Let me know your thoughts!

I thought the issue with posting web links was resolved! Ok, here's the item number... 171869898246

I dig the color. Really close to the Yamaha kit I had on tour years ago.

The color is awesome. Un-ignorable. What's with people being so attached to boring and super common ol' silver or champagne sparkle but averse to these much more eye-catching finishes? If I owned a kit this nice I'd sure want everyone to notice it!

I'm not feeling that price tag. They're not famous drums as far as we know, and its been pointed out that they could be re-finished. Re-Finish or not I wouldn't go there (9k).

Re-finished or not, it's still a 12/14/18 Camco kit with no extra holes or modifications and in a moss green stain which was a catalog color offered by Camco. Price is always subjective, but the kit is worth quite a bit.
