Some really crazy prices on Trademe lately I'm not sure what some
people are thinking...
No.1
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=444456810
start price $350 and buy now was $425 new price for a 16" 101
crash is $109 a cheap single braced straight stand wouldn't be much
more than $69

No.2
http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instruments/instruments/drums/drum-kits/auction-443705697.htm
No name Japanese stencil kit @$2000, really?

No.3
http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instruments/instruments/drums/other/auction-444760073.htm
Chinese no name snare drum sold by a number of online NZ sites for $55, it's got a bag and sticks
so... $330!

No.4
http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instruments/instruments/drums/other/auction-444568806.htm
Homemade drum cases @$700 I think you could get a pretty good set of molded cases for $700

Ha-ha. Yeah, seen all of those. Obviously they won't sell. There are some really nice kits and cymbals getting little money right now so it is a little staggering that some bloke thinks his (quite nice) old MIJ "jazz" kit is worth $2k. The 101 cymbal auction is funny though - "And if you looked at other auctions for paiste cymbals you would see people are after $250 just for the cymbal" - it's a Paiste and they're all the same, surely? Razz

And then you see this (too late) and you have faith that the good deals still exist http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instruments/instruments/drums/drum-kits/auction-444160909.htm

Yeah well guys clearly these people didn't do their homework or the stuff is worth more to them than it is to someone else and the pricing is their reluctance to actually turn it over. I am sure we all have stuff like that. Then there are people who who know about gear that baulk at brand new K cymbals for 30% less than off the rack. Go figure.........

Don't tell me Terry, you've been dicked around by JR163 on the cymbals? I've been there too. Just hang in there and a serious buyer will come along. That guy will completely waste your time. The problem is finding a buyer with cash. I'd imagine many will buy from a retail outlet so they can get finance.

The market is pretty tight at the moment and even vintage stuff is a struggle. Boppa's mint '68 Acrolite selling for $300 was a bit of a shock.

Yeah thats one of the guys, what a twat. Anyway, sold what I didn't want to keep from the import and have a nice new set of K hats, 16K dark thin crash and a 20 K ride for free the princely sum of about $250. Not bad i say.
