Re: Why do drums cost less than guitars?
There are more guitarists in the world.
Most guitarists have several guitars, while most drummers have one or two drum sets.
It's not unheard of for a guitar collector to have 20, 30 or even 100 guitars.
For a drum collector, 10 or 15 kits is a lot of drums to have in the house.
And thus, there are many, many more people willing to pay top dollar for a high end collectible guitar.
