When my son passed away in April, He left a lot of items for his 4 children and ex-wife to liquidate for the estate. He loved his drums and guitars. I can halp on the guitars but the drums are another story.

What I am looking for is where to find a value of the items. We have had no luck of finding similar items on e-bay.

What they need a value on is:

Gretsch set with 22" double base drums, and Toms as follows: 14" mounted 12" mounted 10" mounted 8" mounted 18" floor tom 16" floor tom A 14" high hat 2- 14" snare drums.

All drums have cases for them and they all have Remo heads. The color of the drums of cherry/mahogney. Believed made in the 1990's.

There are 9 cymbals in all- 22" 17" 12" Splash 14" 21" 14" 18" 19" 18" Rivet-? The cymbals have cases also. All cymbals are Sabian and Zildjian.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Do you happen to have any pictures of the drums.

May be best to sell the kit separate from the cymbals and cymbals one by one..

Trying to sell full kit with hardware and cymbals it usually not the best choice if you're looking to get the most out of the sale..

A double bass kit might be a hard sale these days too..

My light is on I can point you towards a site that will be helpful..

I'm looking at the pictures not the clearest but it helps. Just to confirm the drums should be painted silver on the inside with paper labels inside too.

Edit: A shot of the Gretsch badge and interior labels could really help too..
