>>> Ultimately, it may not have been worth the effort buying them...

The OP apparently already bought them. I hope he did not pay much.

There was a time back in the 1980s & 1990s when I'd buy these for like $100, clean them up and flip them for maybe $250. But if you have tried doing that in recent years, you know it's not really possible anymore. The bottom on lower-end drums has fallen out completely. I no longer pick up student sets unless they're free. Then I can pass them on to kids, or donate them, or just strip them for parts. There's still some minimal value, but not enough to bother picking up for resale.
