For sure. I ordered a set of drums days before pandemic lockdowns began in the US, so I got in before prices took off. The price on the exact same set, at the same dealer, is significantly higher these days. I'm glad I bought when I did.
I have no idea if prices will ever drop to match or be near pre covid, pre inflation prices.
I noticed you guys had a TV show about customs in Australia .I tore my reso head with a microphone cable.
Looked up a replacement online and they’re $130 AUD 😵
Now that kinda stuff annoys me a bit. But, the shops electric bill or rent may have increased too.One of the Ludwig floor kits they had jumped $200 from last week.
Same kit ,just more $$$.
Diminishing Returns.Everything is fine. Nothing to see here.

Dings have supply chain issues.Away from the world of drums, I'm also in the market for a Fender Jazz, the Mexican one. In the UK they can be had retail brand new for £650, yet I've seen used ones go on eBay for £590 plus £25 postage for a 10 year old one complete with dings. WTF?
Here too. It’s gotta be bargain basement price. Either guys don’t have the cash or ……. ? Just cause the new prices are going up doesn’t mean used stuff is selling. Very much the contrary.I don’t know about where you are, but on the used drum market around here, nothing is moving.
I wonder how much if that is because of the holidays?The Bullwhip Effect looks to be occurring this month. Inventories are climbing and shipping container rates are falling. That primo kit you've always wanted may drop in price before Christmas!
