  • Clubdate value

    So I'm looking for something different In a kit and I want to sell my clubdates. Sizes are 12x8 13x9 15x10 20x14. The 15 is a converted marching snare.

    So the 12 and the 20 are original (the 20 had a slingerland mount that I patched the holes.

    The 13 and 15 had extra holes I patched and I re-wrapped them using period correct wrap (the wrap itself had holes in it so I had to cover the holes). On the 15 I added floor tom legs.

    Then I re-painted the interior and added new edges on the 13 15 20 set (I bought the 12 much later so I didn't do any extra work)

    There a players set so I don't think I could get a lot for them. Is 800$ fair?

    $800 seems way too much, but I don't know that much about vintage gear so prioritise others' opinions! I'd have said about half that, haha.

      id have to agree with 400 ish.... 800 is up in the vintage original range. im sure they sound good.

        Yeah they sound nice. I'm just looking for something different. I have around 700$ into them. So 400$ is about what I would get?

          I would agree, for club dates that have been modified I think $400-500 is a reasonable retail price, probably less for private party sale.

          And it's "they're a player's set", not "there".
          I own or have owned drums and cymbals made by every major manufacturer. My go-to kit is a DW Collectors series set.

            I'm not sure how to convert the UK/US prices on vintage kit, but good condition 60s Ludwig kits in the UK, go for between £1100 & £1800, with a few going sub £1K due to additional holes etc.

              Good and band news. Bad news I don't have clubdates, but good news I got a set of 60's re-wrapped gretsch. 13" 16" 22" then a 10 and 12 re-wrapped Rogers toms with gretsch parts. He also gave me a dw tom mount. I say it's a fair trade.

                  The kick drum almost made me faint. It's amazing?
