Look, you can do what you want, but nobody else here has the turnover you do. There's nothing wrong with buying drums to flip, but to say you don't, well, I find that hard to believe.
I call it being savy, I'll usally find a good or decent deal on a vintage kit, from a trade or buying it. I can't afford or even want more than two kits at a time, so I'll sell or trade a kit to get something different. I usually don't make much of a profit if I sell a kit, most of my kits have come from trades. Now, I have bought a few kits over the years with the intent of flipping. Every once in a while a deal pops up and if I have extra cash, I'll take advantage of it.

Jr how do you master a kit you don’t keep them long enough to learn it’s nuances ? Just wondering the more I play my kit the more I feel the grove
just saying you most likely would become a better drummer sticking with one kit for a while
Maybe I’m thinking you have not found your dream kit yet when you do it will be a keeper

The two Texan's always seem to have a go at each other, and this one is mild .. meaning .. they HAVE indeed remained relatively civil! If it were to completely deteriorate to the very bowels of civility .. or is that the colon of civility?! .. I would have to take control. This is fine, and as you made mention, opinions are held dear, and very passionate. Makes for very fine and entertaining reading, as long as it stays within the lines! THANKS as always Mark!

When I trade it's usually for a kit with the same sizes and a lot of times the same company. So, I may trade a Ludwig with a 13,16,22 for another Ludwig in the same sizes, but a different finish. My normal set up is 13,16,22 or 20, although at the moment I have a Ludwig Classic Maple, 10,12,14,20 and the Gretscherland, 12,16,22. I'm trying to sell the Classic Maple to buy another or I'll trade it for a vintage kit. So, although I do change kits a lot, they are all pretty much the same.

I appreciate that we can all have different preferences in life. If not, then we'd all be driving the same kind of car, living in the same kind of house and dressing in the same kind of clothing. Granted, there ARE places exactly like that, already, but I'm glad this isn't one of those places!

This place would be boring without all you characters!

Amen!

So johnnyringo sells a lot of kits? Other guys have a lot of kits and never sell any. I could ask that guy how many kits does one person need? How many can you play? Don't they all sound the same? And so on, but is it really my business? That's what that guy likes to do, so what's the problem? Good for him. And I say good for JR. He keeps things interesting, and hey, I might make a deal for one of his kits someday!

Anyway, one divergent opinion has brought this thread to 12 pages, so bring on the divergent opinions!
