Wow. Just saw some SE 14 hh for $450 on reverb
k, thx, bye... :laughing3:
:bs:

Seriously, you can get any brand-new professional line hi hats for this price.
Used, say 2002s, in like new condition apart from the prints and colour for half the price i guess... at least in Europe.
I doubt 404s, 505s or what ever entry or mid range cymbals, again no matter what brand, will be the next BIG R -ehm, thing....

:rolleyes:

505's are sought after cymbals. It's one of the lines I don't own, but people swear by em.
When I do see them for sale, they're not cheap.
Seem to have become a collector's item

People swear by them because they had been/are nice cymbals regarding the price you had to pay back then (again compared to the 2002s) and should pay still today.
It´s pretty much like todays discussion about the PST-7 compared to the 2002s. Great value for the price but STILL NO 2002s....

I see it more like any bubble in any economic sector:
-Items of relative low value suddenly go up because someone is buying off the market (hobbyist, collector, for what ever reason -where is the money -more to make a just a comfortable living).
Others jump onto that train because they think those pieces gone up and up through the last -say- 2 years...
Will those items ever be used like they where supposed to? C´mon we are drummers and we want to PLAY our stuff other than LOOK at it -or even worse.... SHOW IT AROUND all over the place XD
Need to stop at this stage, might get more cynical if i don´t.

Chers,

I assume that's what someone is asking for them?

Wow. I had a 20” 505 heavy ride I couldn’t give away not that long ago. It eventually did sell for $80 or something like that.

A quick glance at eBay's sold listings on Paiste 505 shows a fairly flat market.

The SE hats in the 505 and 404 lines seem to command a bit of a premium but I doubt that seller sees $450 for those..

I don’t think those will sell for 450.

Yes it’s Terry’s fault. Lol.
no one is getting 400 bucks for a 505 ride but some used guitar centerguys following this trend too. I may have to sell mine while stock is up

$450 ridiculous.
505's are fine, I even like the green label, but why pay top money for the 'poor cousin' to the 2002.

^^^this^^^

I refuse to pay "collectors" prices on budget line cymbals regardless of how "good" they sound (i.e. 505's, 404's, 2000's, Alphas, etc.)

Some individual sellers loose their marbles and price some cymbals at TWICE their value......certainly should not make anyone garner any speculations about any 'stock going up'. 505s are no different than any other model - just happens to be the item of someone's misinformation.

Love my 505s. Big fan! No panics people - not rare and not overly coveted.

Asking prices on Reverb are often FAR off true market value. I recently called on a Tama drum kit that started out on Reverb for $3000. A week later it was down to $850. Then lowered to $550. Seller told me if I came and got them right away....$450. The majority of items on Reverb are priced well over market. You need to look at the bottom 10-20% of all the similar items listed to zero in on what they are probably worth.

There are a pair of excellent 505 15's on Ebay for $400 + shipping. But they could be same ones that sold earlier this month for $215 shipped in spirited bidding. Though only 2 of those bidders were above the $105 level. Those were real nice hats. That's more indicative of their competitive market value for that day. Had one of those 2 bidders been missing....they might not have reached $150. Who knows? The same seller also had a pair of mint 14's that sold for $170 shipped. Again, probably more indicative of their real value. Average ones could bring 2/3 of those prices.

Ebay 15's SOLD
