It is an interesting time of fantasy selling… were living through right now. New and used. Does the world need another snare drum or guitar for that matter? Probably not but, it is fun to see something new. I have a great deal of gear as a studio owner so, I’m not just interested in drums. That said, I find it fascinating that gear builders and sellers are pretending that price increases are just something that happens in the business. So, I’m predicting a gear crash in the not-too-distant future. In the last few years I’ve seen mega studios close, big re-sellers go out of business and gear that was sent to CHINA “because its cheaper to make it there”….. but now its more expensive than it was when, it was built in the US (i.e. AMPEG) and the quality has taken a hit as well. Interesting times… indeed. What say ye’?
