I'm 62, hearing is about gone, don't practice much anymore, and I've got this big ole drumset just sitting around in the basement. Wife and I want to go to Europe this summer, daughter in college, and when I think of the drums I only wonder what I might get for it if I sell it off. Should I sell it as a set or sell it piece by piece? It's big, I should get at least 3000-3500 for it if I piece it out. The Jenco Orchestra chimes alone would do pretty well, plus all the rototoms I have, 17 cymbals. What do you guys think? No one wants to hear melodic drumming anyway..

You're great at what you do, music is good for your soul, and even though your hearing is not as good as it once was............SO WHAT!
I say play until the Good Lord decides otherwise!
Besides, all of us here love your arrangements, and love your creativity.
Keep rollin' Brother!

Yeah, drumming is for mortals.
the immortals are composers, like Beethoven for example
maybe he should learn the 5th on the Roto Toms and make a European tour with the Berliner Philharmoniker

I don't personally know you Jim, but that is one fine drumset you have on your hands! Drums are an investment that lasts a lifetime in more ways then we realize. My pops was a life long musician and played until he was needed elswhere and I plan on doing the same thing man. My vote would be for you to keep your drums. Once you sell them and then the money you get for them is gone, they're gone. Besides, getting you a pair of ear plugs is a heck of a lot cheaper then money spent to visit Europe! Best of luck
