Definitely not. Maybe if I had to buy my gear brand new. But my Signia is more than 25 Years old. Cymbales and stands are second hand.... and my car is almost brand new. A Peugeot SUV. So big gap.

I don't. I have a BMW Touring for that :)

My gear is itemized for insurance. It's well into the 5 figures, including lights and other band related items like my riser. It all goes into an 02 minivan worth about 2k on a good day. My ratio has always been like this.

Could I get more for all my drum gear than my car? Absolutely yes. Not sure if that answers the question, lol.

To answer in a simpler way, I care more about drums than cars.

No where close I am afraid. Our 3 vehicles were well north of six figures new and still worth at least half that......my drum gear.....maybe touches $5-8K....

I don't need a lot of gear anymore.....and I can't tow horses with drums and cymbals, or so I am told.

I have multiple individual cymbals worth more than my car. That's not saying much since I have an ultra-high mileage vehicle that refuses to stop rolling.

My car is a mobile stable and kennel.

My drums are Gurus and my cymbals are Amedias. They deserve better.

Tough call..... current resale value of my gear vs what I bought my car for....

Since I paid about $1500 for the current car, its probly about a wash. My drum gear is old and not special, so the resale probly isn't that much, but with three shell packs and 13-14 cymbals, it might get to $1500 :)

I reckon my hats are worth more than my car.

My Lambretta, however.....

I'd say my drums are worth more than my car by a factor of ten - nice drums and an old A-to-B mobile.
