Default Keep an eye on your Estate sales, kids!

1962 3-pc with original hardware and cymbals! Yep, the Supra is COB and is absolutely pristine, as is the rest of the kit! Happened across them in a back room at an estate sale...Already sold the 2 sparkle drums for what I have in 'em, and adding the Supra, my first of the 'holy trinity' snares, to the arsenal for free!

Thanks y'all. I seriously think they spent the last 40+ years in a closet. The bottom of the bass drum was perfect with no scuffs...like it had never even been set up & played. I hit the wraps with Novus #1, just to see if they'd shine up even a bit. Made no difference. Truly a time capsule!

Every time I try to buy drums or guitars at estate sales, someone always beats me to the punch. I get emails informing me of all the estate sales in my area. Some 77 year old man beat me to a '59 BDP Slingerland set for $500 last year by a few minutes. Determined estate sale people line up hours in advance if there are instruments for sale that are desirable.

Estate sales can be fun, once you get over the creep factor of rummaging through a dead persons stuff.
I have found some really cool things and some really good deals over the years, but now that everyone can search an item on their smartphone when they see it, having "insider" knowledge of a niche collectable market is rendered nearly moot. Vintage music gear is nearly always sniffed out early, but occasionally something, usually something that is incomplete or needs a little work, will slip past the general antique picker crowd.

The guy running this estate sale said he had gotten lots of calls on the set (the estate sale was posted on CL), but only one other interested buyer that had actually shown up. She had offered him just over half of what they had it priced at and had told him she would return that evening to complete the sale. I offered exactly half of what he was asking, cash on the spot. We shook hands and that was it. When I saw the pic of the snare on the CL posting, I had to go check to see which kind it was, assuming it was likely going to be Ludalloy. It sure was a pleasant surprise to learn that it's brass! Been on the lookout for one of those in a sale like this for decades now...
