Should I list this drum set as a kit or in pieces? Here are the sizes:
16x22 bass drum 8x10 tom 10x12 tom 10x14 tom 16x16 floor tom
I've been listing it as a complete set for a few weeks but no takers. I have had, however, many people interested in the floor tom. It's a Yamaha Recording Custom in deep aqua color -fairly rare color.
If I list it in pieces, the floor tom and 10" tom will probably be in the most demand. The bass drum would be second in priority. The 12 and 14 inch toms would probably have the hardest time selling. At least that's my thought.
I'm inclined to keep listing it as a kit and see how it goes. Anybody else have any advice?

I have sold kits both ways - complete and in pieces. In that latter scenario I was, however, trying to shift an 8 piece and found that many pieces were not taken up so I built a mini kit out of the 16" tom and converted that to a bass drum, and mounted the 10" tom on a self drilled mount and suspended a 12x12 as "floor" tom. The 24" bass drum and an 8" tom I finally just had to give away. So the risk is there with a piece by piece sale.

Thanks guys. I'm in no rush. My plan is to wait for till the Christmas rush is over as I don't want to stand in a line snaking out the door trying to carry 4 big boxes! Not sure what I'll do as far as listing the kit. I'm leaning toward listing as a set a few times. If it doesn't sell, then I'll try it in pieces.
