Re: The Blue Book of Drums

I am planning on including every brand made, because the site will be international. I think Ebay has kind of equalized the geographical differences more than pre internet. I have sold vintage drums...

Re: Gretsch tom head problem

the drum is most likely 7 & 15/16ths which was Gretsch's specs for Jasper and Keller shells, though the modern ones are easier to fit heads on. If it is covered there is a way to cut a 1/2" of the...

Re: The Blue Book of Drums

The description is probaby the most helpful part of the book. There are a lot of people who don't want to buy or sell, they just want to know what they have.

Re: The Blue Book of Drums

I agree. The only ones who determine the general value of a general drum are the buyer and the seller, but they will both look at the comparables, so the blue books tries to report the comparables.
