The celebrity drum market is a totally different market from the used drum market, so the Steve Gadd acrolite hypothetical is moot. The celebrity market is based on historical value, collectability, fan base, the market at the time and people with big bucks who understand the perceived value to other collectors. It doesn't have much to do with us peon drummers. Ringo upped the ante when he sold the Ed Sullivan kit for 2 million plus. Your 200% mark up is way short of the mark. Celebrity drums are nowhere near as expensive as celebrity guitars though.

I really hope that went to some museum and not a 1%er’s personal collection.
