Birch, although a very good drum wood, is almost always cheaper than it's maple counterpart. And certainly, not all drums (birch or otherwise) are created equal. Premier never sold very well in the U.S., so the used market seems to be weak. Parts are hard to find, etc.

Kit with hardware might bring 250-300. No demand for them and who ever buys it is going to have to be looking for that kit.
