Yikes. Yet another optimist on the internet. That collection is only worth a fraction of $37,000, and that's his starting bid? lol.
Unless there's some vintage Ludwig or Gretsch kits autographed by Buddy or Ringo hidden under there, It's highly unlikely anyone would ever buy the entire lot. I'd be surprised if anyone buys a lot like this for more than, I dunno, wild guess, $8000?
The cymbals are probably worth at least $20k
He should have taken Guitar Center’s offer of 32K or whatever.
He said Guitar Center offered him "under 33k" which to me means they offered him $500 in store credit.
There's no way they offered him even a remotely good deal. But I originally assumed the only cymbals were the ones in the picture...but he says there's 250 cymbals, so if most of them aren't B8s, that could raise the value significantly.
