Default PEAVEY RBS-1 (6 Piece)

Hello to all drum collectors,

I have a rare PEAVEY RBS-1 (6 Piece) drum kit for sale.

Condition: great
Price: $3000 or best offer

The Radial Pro 1000's were originally called RBS-1's. RBS-1 started out life with a Radial Bridge constructed completely from maple ply. The ply was chosen to provide absolute stability. What makes the premier lines of Peavey drums unique is the patented Radial Bridge System. The Radial Bridge System creates head tension without weighing down the shell with lugs and bolts that interfere with its resonance. The head tension is taken by heavy wooden hoops that support the heads with no mounting hardware attached to the shells. This allows the shells to perpetuate a louder and longer sustaining sound.

Peavey tom-toms were made with thin 1/10 of an inch thick, three-ply shells, and the bass drums with five ply shells. Conversely, Peavey's snare drums are made with heavy 1 3/4 inch thick shells that bring out the high overtones in the snare sound.

If you are a serious buyer, feel free to contact me via email: or mobile: 570.239.4912

Also, as I'm sure you know, these drums are considered collectables. Therefore, I prefer not to ship the drums b/c i don't trust the carriers. It has always been my top priority to keep my instruments in great condition. I can guarentee that this drum kit has minimal wear. For it's entire life, I've only transported the drums a handful of times b/c I mainly used it as a studio kit. So if you are a serious buyer, we can work out a deal in terms of transportation.
