Hello citizens of the drum community, and welcome to Guitar Center Albany's Used Drum Blog!
Here you can find information regarding some of our favorite pieces that come through the store. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us via the information provided on the page.
USED SONOR 3005 FORCE 4 PC BLACK AND GOLD SPARKLE
Featuring a limited Black sparkle finish and flawless 9-ply maple shells, this kit also has another unique characteristic: the shells are HUGE! The sizes on this kit are considered 'Bonham Sizes' (a 14x14 inch rack tom, 16x16 inch floor tom, a 16x18 inch floor tom, and an 18x22 inch bass drum). The final cool note about this kit is that it has an XLR input on the bass drum itself. That means that you can put a kick drum mic INSIDE of the shell, eliminating the need for an extrernal stand and fiddling with its' position. You will be the sound guy's best friend. At $399.99, this kit is a steal.
USED PEACE COCKTAIL KIT
This one is interesting.
The idea of the cocktail kit came to fruition in the jazz clubs of New York City. Many of the smaller jazz clubs are just that - small. To save valuable space of stage, someone decided that playing drums standing up instead of sitting down would make for a more efficient solution. This kit features a bass drum that actually doubles as a floor tom and comes with a free bass drum pedal that kicks up instead of down. Attatched to said drum are a snare drum and rack tom, as well as a hi-hat mount and a cymbal mount. If you are looking for a solution to space problems or a decent kit for bop jazz, this could be the kit for you.
USED GRETSCH NEW CLASSIC 4 PC BLUE SPARKLE
Here we have my absolute favorite kit in the entire store. The finish on this is beautiful, and I have never seen another kit like it. The choice of die-cast hoops and classic Gretsch round badges on this make it truly live up to it's name as the New Classic. Every thing about this kit screams vintage, but with the quality and durability of a modern drum set. If you're looking for class, you want this set.
