I was bought a black wrap R360 by my parents when I was a nipper in 1982!

Ok I'm not saying you should rush out and buy one, and I realise that they beyond suck on the vintage drum market BUT WAIT..................that kit was truly amazing.

Cheap wood (luan?) or not I don't care, I played that kit to death and it sounded bloody brilliant. Better than alot of the top end stuff I've bought since (Modern or even Vintage ssshh). I built my career on it, and it never let me down. Come the end it could hardly hold itself up the spurs were so worn with the wrap crinkling all over the place but my god that kit sounded great. I still have demo's I did on it and they sound GOOD. Really thick and woody. I quite miss the low end those drums had. Sod the wood snobs, it was PHAT.

I had that kit from age 11 to 24, did probably at least 1500-2000+ outings in the car (and van touring)and stood up to the bashing of a noob teen. Jazz gigs, restaurant gigs, shows, cabaret, first Rock bands, kit shares, demos, first tours and of course endless rehearsals that kit sorted me out.

Ok buying one today is kind of equal to buying an old Pearl Export(equally legendary and from the same factory), but lets not consign this marquee to the "no bueno" department quite yet, these kits were built for a job, which mine at least did so well to the end. The drums were balanced, no resonance issues with the toms, the kit was great, really great.

On a ending note, I stupidly sold it to buy a shiny new Premier Projector kit. WHAT A DOOOSH. The Prem was total dog poooop in comparison, really really god awful and really expensive too.

If you want a bar donkey a decent R360 kit will sort you out. You'll get it for next to nothing, but it will sound great and look pretty good to.

I salute my old R360 wherever it is and in whatever state it is today. (cue band of brothers theme music)

I'm pretty sure the Ringo wrap (Oyster Black, called Black Strata by Rogers) was only available on the 60's R-360's.

It could make a cheap "Ringo'esque" set for someone that just wanted a display set although as far as cheaper drums go the early R360's were much better than most other imported sets of the era.

There's definitely a place in my heart for the R360 since it was my first drum set.
Always sounded good to me.

R360's are great drums for what they are worth. $300 tops would be my opinion. The ones that Yamaha made were high quality imports. But still imports nonetheless.
