Default Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

1950's--1980's Rogers drums were more expensive than those other brands mentioned in this thread largely due to the most innovative and most versatile hardware that the industry is still copying. Rogers drums were the DW of the industry before there was a DW. Of those American-made brands mentioned, Gretsch made and sold the fewest drums. The law of supply and demand comes in to play here. When you mix collectors' hype with short supply, the prices go up.
No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
