  • Value Of A Vintage Gretsch 14x8 Snare?

    I have found my wonderful Gretsch 14x8 snare.

    It was bought in 1984, saw only a few shows and sessions before I 'quit' in
    the summer of 1985.

    You can just about see it in action on this link:-

    It is mint condition having been stored in a Le Blonde fibre case from that day
    until this and was wondering what the value might be having not looked at
    any acoustic prices in the last 24 years!

    Anyone got any ideas as to it's value?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe 300 to 600 us. The market is low right now.

    Having Phil sign it would increase the value

          Thanks for the feedback guys.
          It was something I had wanted all my previous drumming life and finally saved
          enough to buy it, so while it never saw much action, I was reluctant to sell it,
          so it has been stored for 24 years.

          The only other drum I hung onto was a 10" roto-tom which remains a cool
          item to this day.

          Not sure whether to hang on to the snare it or to sell it to fund GAS.
