Condition: 8/10 – The shells are in amazing condition, some usual signs of use on the hardware and heads (see photos).
This kit right here, this VERY SAME kit, was played by Dave Weckl! Seriously. This kit was used at the Buddy Rich 100th memorial gig in May 2019 at Ronnie Scott’s (see photos). It’s had another owner since then, but here’s your chance to own your own bit of drumming history.
What a drum kit! The Absolute Hybrid Maple kits are remarkable, especially in BIG sizes like this. 24in bass drum, 13in rack, 16in and 18in floor toms. Thunderous! The hybrid Maple-Wenge-Maple shell is taken from their flagship PHX series, so already you know it means business.
Wenge is a very hard wood, native to Africa, it resonates really well. Sandwiching this between plies of maple, known for its clear and warm tone, this helps the sound resonate further for maximum shell sustain and a warm, clear, well projected tone. This kit is incredibly versatile and can easily sit in most genres, along with maintaining a gorgeous tone across all volume and velocity levels of playing. Expression to the max!
Packed full of high-end features such as the Hook Lugs which provide speedy head changes and effortless tuning, and the YESS III mounting system that reduces the acoustic dampening and allows the shell to vibrate more freely, this kit could be the mega upgrade you’re looking for!
