I recently purchased a new Ludwig snare, two new DW pedals, a DW snare stand, and a Pearl tom stand. Does anyone have any thoughts about whether I should save or discard (recycle) the original boxes they came in. Is there any advantage to holding onto them?
Saving the boxes for the duration of the guarantee is a good idea if you have to ship anything back to the factory.
The only other time keeping the original box and paperwork is a good idea,is if you buy a one of a kind or limited edition drum.This will establish provanance and add to the collectability and resale value.
