Look at the black badges(the black square things on the shell) it probably says peavy.

9 out of 10 teens listen to rap. if you're one of the ones that stays true to proggressive metal/classic rock,put this in your sig.

Well well well, what do we have here.

Judging from just looks, the set appears to be of entry level. Which has a very low resale vaule unfortunately. Were you planning on selling all the hardware and cymbals a long with the set?

Let me know what the brand is and I'll be able to help you out! :)


EDIT: Nevermind, I just saw the Peavy logo on the bass.

I'm going to be harsh in my honesty right now. You will be lucky to get $100 out of that set. They retail for around 375. Entry level sets lose half if not more of their value the second you walk out the door from buying them.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! :P

EDIT #2: If you are going to continue to play, shoot me a PM and I'll give you some tips on how to set up your drums properly so you don't hurt the muscles and tendons in your arms. With the angles of those drums, if you continue to play like that, you are going to hurt your arms and hands. Also, this is a common problem but easily fixed. You're bass drum is actually backwards. The clamp that holds the stand for the two tops should he AWAY from you and not close to you. This allows for a more compact set up, and also lets you get to those Toms with more ease. It also allow for your right foot to play with proper technique.

BUT, you were just asking for the price, so I won't critique anymore! :)

Peavey makes drums?!?!?! Crazy.

Everything there $150 tops, if the cymbals looks like crap and the heads on the drums are crap like $100 or so. Try Craigslist and see what you get.

I just got the PDP X7 set w/ a rack and Paiste Signature cymbals. Gotta love a great paying summer job.

Yeah thats way off topic.

Edit: Just over 6 years of play for me.
