Stuart is in the process of spring cleaning his drum cupboard, in which he has amassed many drumkits and drum parts over the last ten years and would like to give you the chance to buy stuff before he puts the gear on general sale! If you are interested in buying any of the items below, please email info@dumdums.com for more info. Should you purchase any item(s), you will need to be able to collect from the central Birmingham area, as posting drums isn't very easy! All of the items below will be on sale here for one week only until 3RD MAY 2005 at which point they will be going on eBay. So if you want anything, make sure you email us before 3RD MAY!

Yes, you can get decent enough starter kits for £300+ but the majority of Stu's stuff is top of the range because he's a pro drummer and therefore has pro kit and/or stuff from endorsers!

But even so, drums are more expensive them most instruments, especially cymbals!

Don't I know it!

18" Zildjan Power Crash = £250
16" Zildjan Fast Crash = £220
14" S/Hammered Zidjan Hi-Hats = £160
22" Paiste Low Ride = £280

Shell Kit (Bass, Hi-Tom, Lo-Tom, Floor-Tom, Snare and associated clamps)
Mapex Pro-M Series in Ice Blue = £680

Throne/Cymbals stands/Snare stand/Kick Pedal/Cow Bell/Sticks etc) = £250

Cases so they don't get damaged in my car = £100

Total cost = £1940

Then there's stuff like having to buy a bigger car to be able to carry them around in, then replacement sticks at £11 a pair, and skins at average £9 a time etc. And cymbals crack with annoying frequency!!!

I never saw it written down in total before!! :shock: :shock:

Vater Ltd Edition in Black with red hatch undercurrent.

When you hit the hi hat's and the little bits of black paint chip off, then they're red underneath.

Plus they're one of only two sets of sticks that don't absolutely knacker up my hands. Vic Firth wax tip 5BN are the others, and they're about £7 or £8 a pair.
