Coe:I wonder...is it possible that, of all the musical instruments, drums are the ones most likely to be unceremoniously dumped or sold at bargain-basement prices because of the noise they make? They take up a ton of room. They can't be moved easily, they usually can't be used in apartments. Parents hate 'em. People who don't learn to play 'em only make annoying noise with 'em. People who learn to play 'em STILL make lots of noise with 'em. I figure many a parent or wife or girlfriend pressed to have their significant other unload their drums as fast as possible. Food for thought...
I think you may be right about this. No idea what they have. (Then you turn around and see that some parent is selling a "barely used, almost new" CB700 or other such nonsense for the retail price they paid for it because little Timmy or Janey gave up the lessons to go smoke crack or something).
And the schools dumping gear because it has been in a closet for x years really lights my rockets when the schools then cry they have no money or need more of the tax dollars....oh man, don't get me started there....
Back to the regularly scheduled program....
