We have just bought a new drum kit, (see photo) Dean went to buy it as I was busy. It was priced at £950 with a standard snare drum and no hardware. Dean, as bold as brass waved a cheque at them for £870 and said "I'll give you this cheque now if you throw in a couple of cymbal stands, (at nearly a hundred pounds each) AND a piccolo snare drum at £280. The guy said no at first, so Dean was about to walk out, muttering something about band supplies, when the guy pleads with him to stay. The deal was done very shortly after. I know I wouldn't have the balls to do that, if I see a price on something, that's the price I pay. What are the best deals you have struck? BTW, the drum kit is fantastic! and the piccolo snare is a must for every drummer, the response is unbelievable!:tup Oooh, nearly forgot to mention a complete set of Remo pinstripe skins too!
