Default Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Here's another eBay listing that just has me scratching my head...https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-60s...kAAOSweGRdZw37

This is nothing more than a $5-$10 yard sale find. I just don't get it! That's all I'm going to say, because my blood pressure is going up!

But Mark Fenberg is cleaning and restoring my brother's rogers kit and we plan to offer it for a good price.
I am grateful for all the information here and have seen in person Mark's collection. Beautiful!

Hi Catherine!

Thanks so much for the compliments on my collection! It was fun having you over. I'm sure you enjoyed seeing your brother's Ludwig snare drum all cleaned up and ready for sale!

Yes so nice all the care you gave it. I saw that snare drum you sighted for 121 dollars. American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow. So where are all those collectors.

Now everything truly is supply and demand, cause and effect.


It is what it is.
I used to run a ad in the local paper 365 days a year wanting Drums /cymbals...The deals used to be out there!.Example ...from my ad....bought a unmolested 1941 Ludwig Top Hat Snare for...$100!.....also...A Gold plated hardware... non engraved Ludwig 4 by 14 1920s Black Beauty and gold plated hardware 14 by 24..with factory painted oil scene on front head...$200!..They paid $75 at a yard sale they told me when I was leaving with it!...

But the one thing consistently here is the knowledge that we have as a community and the collection are beyond what you would expect , you can spend days going through the gallery and see the collections here done very rare others just nice , some are still coveted but others have been sold off , some here myself included buy and sell, what we all are learning is the deals are slowly disappearing as also prime stock .. because of that , prices can be very high and some times they sell for that , but thatís not the norm here , usually you sit on them and to sell fast you need to find a player that also likes vintage and at a fair price ,unfortunate as it is most up and coming drummers want new so I wish you luck on the sale
Gary
Thank you! I would imagine as we pass away from the 70's even the not so great ones will sell, but that is in the future.
