About Craigslist: A Brief History
Craigslist was launched in 1995 as a simple project by founder Craig Newmark. Its original intent was to be an email list for friends focused on the SF Bay Area. Word of mouth grew the list and eventually a website was launched.  Craigslist was officially incorporated in 1999. The popularity of Craigslist grew and today, the website has sections in over 570 cities across 50 countries. It is one of the top 100 most popular sites on the internet and still maintains a minimal staff of less than 100.

Cocktail Drum Sets on Craigslist & Hang Drums

Variations from the modern drum set are common and include cocktail drums sets.  There are a more portable version of a full kit that still provides a comparable amount of percussive variance.

Hang drums have also become popular which feature two deep drawn, nitrided steel sheets that are attached together. These drums are played with the hands to create warmer tonality. The hang drum is similar to a talking drum in that it can change pitch.

  1. Hi All,

    Is Ludwig Accent Fuse (JF-LC1708-KIT-1) 5-Pc Drum Set with Hardware, Zildjian Cymbals, & Accessories, White Finish is a good quality drum set for a beginner/intermediate drummer. Can you please let me know.



    • This kit is no longer available new but they can def be found on Craigslist. Originally those were in the neighborhood of almost $1K for that package. At that price range for what you are getting they would def fall more in the intermediate range. Ludwig overall makes high quality stuff so short answer yes and yes.
