The idea of Drum Pickers was taken from a popular television show where two guys travel around looking for great "stuff", or antiques and put them back to great condition and resell them. So basically at Drum Pickers we go to flea markets, garage sales, online websites, as well as frequent pawn shops looking to buy or sell high-end drums, percussion, cymbals, or drum hardware.
The advantage of Drum Pickers is we are not only drummers but we have expert level knowledge about the drum industry. We know the hardware, the drums, quality, vintage importance and we know the people in the industry. You can stay on top of the best gear and information by signing up for our blog at drum pickers, click here. So at Drum Pickers you can rest assured that what you are getting is nothing but the best picked drums and accessories.
At Drum Pickers we look for an item that is in either great condition or is worth the time to restore (click here to see samples of our Restored items). We also look for borderline items that would have high intrinsic value (its vintage, or premium value), would be in poor condition. We will restore that item and make it available to our Preferred Pickers (click here to learn more about Preferred Pickers) for the first 48 hours and then available to the public after that.
We even buy gear from other drummers. If you are interested in selling your gear, click here to find out more.
During our search, we look for items that may only represent hard to find parts. The cost on those items (usually hardware) is pretty small, but they can mean the difference between an operable piece, or an inoperable piece (or $10 as the replacement part making it useable, or buying a new piece of hardware which is $75-$125).
Overall, Drum Pickers is looking to find drum products that reach a market in need. These are drummers that are committed to playing, but don't have the financial resources to address better equipment.
In this economy, we see that it is absolutly imperative to a growing market.
