Default MIJ Snare: $750 YIKES!
Misslynn in North Carolina is in for a rude awakening with this listing. Clearly, she's a novice at selling drums. Some people think anything old is worth it's weight in gold.

Yeah, asking prices have gotten out of control! I just don't understand the rationale behind pricing.

Yes, but the shipping price is quite fair.

I'd agree.

This looks like a clear cut case of someone with no knowledge of drums telling her what he thought it was worth. It happens all the time.

Hey, guys, it's been fun, but I'm selling all my Star stuff and retiring! I think I'd like a casa in Mexico with a young live-in maid to help out a bit. Sun, sand and cold beer, here I come!!!

Well, I took a chance and sent misslynn a very nicely worded email through Ebay telling her that I had decades of experience buying and selling drums, and had no interest in buying the drum. However, the price was very high, considering that most drums in this range usually sell anywhere from $85-$165. I told her to add $20 for the stand, so a price of $175-200 would be realistic.

So far, no response, and it's still at $750. I wished her good luck and told her I was just trying to help her sell it. I have a feeling it all fell on deaf ears. After it sits there for six-twelve months, we'll see if she doesn't change her tune.
