Got an opportunity to pick up a mid 70's Pearl drumkit with UFIP hi hats, ride and crash, for £100. Anyone know if it would be an OK ish kit just to mess around with?
you aren't gonna get any kit for less than that, so I'd get it if I were you. Chances are, if it's still around 30 years later, it's probably pretty good. Could be an absolute steal.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

http://the llama forum because its gone forever which sucks and I hate it.
Old Pearl kits are BUILT TO LAST. I should know i had one for 15 years from the 70s era. I toured with one actually, as long as you put pinstripes and just get thuds and dont need tone its perfect.

UFIPs sound like sheets of scrap metal so i wouldnt expect much from them.
