Default Big R Price Check

I'm on the hunt for a second kit, saw this Rogers Big R kit at Music-Go-Round for $699.
It has a 12,13,14,15,16,22,14. They have the 5ply shells with rings and grey interiors.
Any opinions are welcome, thanks.

Nice price, but do you need that many drums? There's a guy around here selling a Big R set in that orange finish and he won't budge from $999. It's 12/13/16/22. They're in great shape, but overpriced, I think. I saw them in person and was tempted, but he wouldn't bend at all.

Nice drums, solid, good price, but ya a lot of drums,but you can just set up 12,14,16,22 or 13,15,16,22. So lots of good options, and if that
Dynasonic comes with it that's probably worth 1/3 or more of the price .
I'm surprised you are looking at so many drums since you're always playing 1 up 1 down

Hey, if I can get seven drums for that price, why not? I'd never use them all, but they could come in handy or I could flip the 14,15.

Look at our boy johnnyringo going all Neil Peart on us!

Seems like an incredible price for all those drums. I've seen 4 piece Big R's going for that much If you have the room, I'd say jump!

They are all fitted with Evans hydraulic heads on top and the bottom heads have a big hole cut. At least they didn't ditch the bottom hoops.

I haven't bought the kit yet, but if I do, those heads are going in the nearest recycle bin.

Intact 7 drum set with Dyna is worth $699 IMHO. 14-15 might take a while to sell, but they are popular color.

$300 Dyna included? Shipping will be pricey if you cannot pick up. $300+

Might get price down if they have had them a while.
