Default Re: Why do drums cost less than guitars?

At the lower end, you can get a cheap guitar and amp combo for $150, or an acoustic for $100. A cheap drum set with crappy cymbals will be $250 (on special) and up.

I had always thought of drums and guitar as being roughly equal, as you can drop about $2000-3000 on a decent guitar and about $1500 on an amp--and about the same on a shell pack and then cymbals, a throne, a bodyguard to keep the groupies away, etc...
