I was thinking about vintage drums and gear the other day. It occurred to me that companies like Zildjian and Ludwig have been around selling drums and cymbals for over 100 years. Even "newer" companies like Yamaha, Pearl and DW have sold thousands if not millions of sets. Where is all this gear? I don't think any one throws drums in the garbage. How many Zildjian cymbals are in attics and basements? How many Slingerland drums are in the garage? I know you can find some of this stuff for sale but if you think about it, there are millions of cymbals and drums sets and bass drum pedals and snare stands, and on and on and on. It's all gone somewhere. I don't think it's in a landfill somewhere. Yet with all this used gear out there, people still buy new stuff by the truckload. At some point isn't the market going to be so saturated that there's no market for new stuff. Anything you want you will be able to find used somewhere. Or are all these collectors exotic kits, longboard pedals and double braced boom stands going to end up in the garbage some day? Next to the Radio Kings and under last weeks take out?
