I think Yamaha Stage Custom covers too many different options to be able to tell if that's
a good deal - plus you don't know the cymbals... If you can find out the model of cymbal
(as opposed to just the brand) they might be easier to judge, and also might give you an
indication of whether the seller is likely to have looked after his kit.
this is your first drumkit purchase I don't think it's too important, as the chances of it
being the drumkit you really need if/when you become serious are pretty small. Looking at
the models online, they don't look like jazz kits. But if you just buy it, you'll learn a
lot of things about drums you won't be able to find out otherwise.
round to check it out with $350 in one pocket and the remaining $150 in another. If you
really can't get him to move much on the price, then it's probably not a bad deal.
