Default Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Ultimately it comes down to me selling my MIJ to make room for it and the MIJ is perfectly fine, I just wanted a better built kit. To resell it would be hard and take a lot of time if something more desirable came along, plus the issue of the heads. I'll wait it out for another set.
I saw that set on NYC CL. Lousy photo. You couldn't see what the drums looked like. I stay away from anything with bad photos, because it seems like the sellers are hiding something. I do like the Premier blue pearl finish though.
