I have a rusty LP cowbell that I think is worth $5000. What are my chances of getting it?

The seller is on drugs.

Just out of curiosity....What WOULD a Rogers Luxor in that wrap and in really good shape expect to bring at auction?

And what would a really nice wooden Dynasonic in that wrap in really good shape bring at auction?

And whatever the price discrepancy is between the two models, what, exactly are the features that make one more valuable than the other?

My opinion is $400 and $2,000 respectively. My further opinion is that someone else could pay the ridiculously high prices for Dynasonics. I would rather play a Luxor, anyway. And, a nice clean $150-$200 Luxor in two-tone Duco, sparkle wrap, or pearl wrap would be just fine.

Interesting...


I'm going to play Devil's Advocate here for a second...


What, exactly, do you figure determines the value discrepancy of approx. $1600.00 between the two models?

People pay "ridiculously" high prices all the time for old K Zildjian ride cymbals and I never see people get up in arms about those prices.

I'm just curious as to the origins of these valuations. What are they based on?

Thanks, Wayne. There's a very interesting story about that drum. I rehabbed some Leedy orphan drums--7x11 1940's tom, 12x16 1950's marching tenor drum converted to floor tom, 16x18 1960's floor tom converted to bass drum. I wrapped them in White 3-D material obtained from Canal Plastics in New York City. Shortly after completing the rehab project, a friend, who managed a Guitar Center store, told me about taking in that snare drum as part of a trade in or street purchase. Shortly after that, the drum came home with me. Here it is with the little bop set.

O-Lugs!

I believe the value "discrepancy" is from hard data from sales over the years. Wood-shell Dynasonics are rare in terms of numbers produced. While the current economy has lowered actual selling prices, good examples can still command in excess of $2000. Luxor snare drums, regardless of how any of us personally feel about them, are "student" models and they are not "rare". I purchased my silver sparkle Cleveland-baged Luxor, with all orginal parts, except for snare wires and the batter head, for only $200.

Condition is everything, and the snare drum in question is very clean. The black onyx wrap, in my estimation, adds MAYBE another $200 and I'm being generous with that estimation. Can a seller ask whatever they want? Of course they can! But, at the end of the day, a dose of reality needs to set in with regards to pricing!

Many of you know that I've download 1000's of drum pictures over the years, mostly from eBay. I also usually include the description and a selling price if sold. I went through my pictures to find the Luxor snare drum that sold for the most money. I came up with this Cleveland-era Luxor, wrapped in original Green Sparkle (actually a glass glitter wit no fade!) and it sold back in October 2010 for $456! I have pictures and "sold" prices for other "rare" finishes, such as Blue, Black and Pink Strata and Wine Red Ripple. None of them sold for more than $375! Each one was in Exc+ condition!

Just food for thought!
