Default Is there any interest in Marchers anymore?

I think they look nice but if I wanted to sell some of a collection off, would there be any interest? Could give them away but again is there anyone who would want them?

Speaking only for myself, I have no qualms whatsoever of using one in place of a floor tom,
But I would have no use for a marching snare as a snare.

You don’t happen to have a sky blue pearl Ludwig that has aged deeper blue...?

I sold several over here last year - mostly Rose Morris (all in WMP), also a couple of Premier / Olympic.

Not sure what the interest would be though?
Nice size for "floor" toms?
Collectors?
Cozy Powell fans?

I'd only be interested in the really old ones from the Civil War...Or maybe a really nice rope tensioned one just for decoration....But for all practical reasons...no.

There's a great guy over here who converts marching / parade bass drums - which I'd say, due to narrow depth, may be less useful as "kit" bass drums - into dog beds!!

All marchers....I was just watching Unleaded with Michael Lee behind the kit and he was using a silver sparkle 10x 14 marcher as a snare.

I take it back about the marcher bass drums! They look great.

I think Michael Lee often used marchers, including a brass one at some point.
