Re: Craviotto Nickel Over Brass #2/5 Black Diamond Snare - $6000 shipped

Rarity often doesn't equal $$$. This is a common myth. You're right, the market does set the outcome...which is why its been dropped by 50%. The market changes.

Re: MIJ Drums with Die-Cast Hoops

One year later...still not sold, still $14,000. I'm sure there's no correlation.

Re: Vintage Premier 2000 Snare Drum 68/69 Great Cond

Nice, COB. My understanding is the beer barrel hoops and badge are the marks to look for.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

I have many vintage MIJ kits (one of my Star kits is in the gallery section), and belong to numerous vintage MIJ groups. That price is insane. Even by Reverb standards.
