    DW Collectors used price point

    It isn't a bad price, but I'd say it's a bit on the high side. Something in the $2300 range would be where I would start with that kit.

    I've never seen a standard downbeat like that. Was that a prototype or something?

    SOLD Ludwig 6.5x14 circa 79 Black Beauty really nice SOLD

    Weren't you just trying to trade a drum set for a black beauty like yesterday? Another thing to consider when purchasing a drum is value retention. Go buy a new Pearl snare and you'll lose 30% or more right off the top. With a mint vintage black beauty like this, it will probably gain value...

    Is anyone buying or selling now?

    I've had better luck selling on Reverb and Craiglist in the past two months than I think I ever have before. Maybe prices are a bit lower but volume of transactions seems way up.

    POLL: Sabian Logo Fallout - Still Buying Their Cymbals?

    It's wild to hear all the different opinions on this. I definitely know I'm vain for not purchasing a cymbal, even though I like the way it sounds, because of a logo stamped on it. It boils down to the fact that any cymbals I add to my collection at this point are not essential and fall into...
