Ok, well, i was talking to my music teacher last night at a school gig, an we ended up talking about the school kit, and the two old ones in the school cupboard, an i've been looking for a decent kit for a while, so anyway, i offer to buy one, and he says that if i replace the bass drum head and the snare side head of the current kit i can have both!!!:D

So, I took them home today, Specs:

Kit 1. Hayman vibrasonic drums:

14x5 premier snare
22x16 bass
12x8 tom tom
13x9 tom tom
16x16 floor tom

Kit 2. Tama Rockstar:

14x6.5 snare
22x18 bass
12x10 tom tom
13x11 tom tom
16x16 floor tom

tama Hihat stand, half a cymbal stand, and ludwig speedking pedal

the hayman bass drum is cracked, and only has one hoop, and the rockstar toms have no reso rims


so... what should I do with it all, the hayman has a nice gold coloured wrap underneath the black (it looks like somone went over the whole thing with spray paint, you can see the gold on the tom at the back, on the throne) so i'm thinking of just stripping the paint, and leaving the wrap, and fixing up the rockstar to keep as my giging kit, and maybe after fixing up the hayman selling it, what do you think?...remember, all for a 22"pinstripe an a 14" snare side...it's who ya know;)

Thats KILLER, do a nice clean up job and you'll be set man.

10-28-2005, 05:11 PM
Well i scraped off the spray paint on one of the toms off this morning and this is how it ended up:

10-28-2005, 05:14 PM

10-28-2005, 05:54 PM
Yes, it looks better

10-28-2005, 05:58 PM
Are you sure that's the same tom?

10-28-2005, 06:04 PM
Woah, nice. That's a big improvement. That should turn out nice! :thumb:

Plan B.
10-28-2005, 06:06 PM
Huge improvement!

Looking really good, go for the whole thing. The finished product will be awesome.

10-28-2005, 06:11 PM
woah man

thats hawt

hurry up and do the whole thing

10-28-2005, 06:14 PM
I thought so, lol
some one had just sprayed the kit with spray paint, and that tom only took 3 hours, so hopefully i'll finish the whole thing over the weekend :)
Anyone have any idea if hayman kits are worth anything? i think i might sell it

10-28-2005, 11:26 PM
why would someone spraypaint over that???

bill bruford used hayman drums for a bit.

bonham had a hayman in a midnight blue.

i dont know about prices, but if you got that nice you could make some nice money, they have a lot of fans and collectors.

you know what, restore it, get it nice polisehd and shiny, see how it sounds. I would recommend keeping this as i do with most collectors kits, you wil regret it later, you have a piece of hisrtory, something everyone wants. How are the edges? you mgiht want them redone, but i dont know about that it might be a bit risky as far as value and sound goes.

10-29-2005, 12:03 AM
yea, i think i'll keep it now, i've put 12 year old heads on the two drums i've finish and they sound awesome, so new heads should sound even better, the edges are screwed, but a little wax will fix that, no one really redoes edges here in NZ, and if they do it'll cost a fortune

10-29-2005, 01:04 AM
That gold is awesome man. Keep the set! It'll be worth more later

10-30-2005, 12:12 AM
OK, I finished all the drums, it all got easier as i went,
and i had to make that half cymbalstand into a tom stand cause the bass drum isn't very strong, cause of the crack :( anyways:

Much better, killer restoration.

10-30-2005, 12:17 AM
i think that looks fantastic, get some new heads on and tell us how it truns out.

10-30-2005, 12:17 AM
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!, you did an amazing job, when I saw the first pics of the sets up top, I thought it was one of the worst things ever, now they look sweet, put some new heads all around and it will be an unbelieve able set, Good Job :thumb:

10-30-2005, 12:22 AM
yea, only thing is it'll cost me about $250 to get new heads,
NZ prices suck!

ill have enough money in about 2 months

10-30-2005, 12:27 AM

ouch, try ebay, you could get like all brandnew sets of heads for like 50$.

10-30-2005, 12:30 AM
NZ ebay sucks, there is www.trademe.co.nz, which is basicly a NZ version but no heads on it at the moment

10-30-2005, 12:35 AM

you are in a predicument lol, well just save up then, its always worth it, or try begging for the money, when your parents see all the hardwork you put into restoring the set, they should have merci lol

10-30-2005, 12:38 AM
na, my dad said "what's wrong with my kit?"
then he said "good job, it's pretty nice"
but no way he'd give me money for it,
but if i get most the money for it then i can owe them $50 for a while till i pay them back

10-30-2005, 12:41 AM
hmm, soundscool I dont know what you should do tohugh lol, but agian, good work on the kit:thumb:

Little TLC on it and you'll have yourself a nice rig.

10-30-2005, 01:41 AM
yep, the other kit i'm guna sell as parts, it has a black plastic wrap and i dont feel like i need another kit after the surpise of the hayman, and it's not that good anyway, espesially cause i'd have to get new hoops and lugs for the toms and bass

10-30-2005, 01:25 AM
man $250 for new heads that is shyt!
