Price difference !
 
hello,

I'm looking for Ludwig parts and I found out that there can be very big price differences. While looking for gaskets for lugs I first contacted the Ludwig distributor for my country and was told they cost 0,66 euro's each. Unfortunately there were not enough pieces in stock and I would have to wait a few months for them so I looked at some online shops.
At Drums On Sale they cost $0.75 each and at the Drum Center of Portsmouth, New Hampshire they cost $2.50 each. Does anyone know the reason for this big price difference and which of both shops is handling a realistic price?

Thanks

shops have to charge what it takes for them to stay in business. They have employees, salaries, taxes to pay , rent, insurance,inventory overhead,gas and electric, phones, advertising, website costs, the list goes on and on.

Just a matter of economics and doing business.

Check ebay and you'll get an even larger variety on pricing.

There's a lot of players taking the lug gaskets OFF their drums. Maybe someone here can throw you some used ones for the price of postage?
