If you’ve spent any time browsing used drum gear on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace, you most likely have seen some pretty jank kit setups on listings. Here’s some of the best ones I’ve found.

It’s common to see non-drummers selling drum sets, and they tend to mount the tom arms backwards.

Another non-drummer set this one up

I don’t even know what’s happening in this picture (I believe that’s more than five pieces, my guy)

Just add a new top, bro
