That drum sold for AU $82.75 ...

What is that in US dollars, about 65 bucks?

That's INSANE!

There must be a REAL shortage of drums in Australia!

There's not so much a shortage of drums, but vintage drums, certainly. There is a smaller population and i certainly think a MUCH smaller music population, let in this era, let alone previous eras. But we can get the crappy kits over here that are imported from china (not anything against kits that are made in china) but because it is EXTREMELY hard to get certain timbers over here the top quality instruments are actually made in countries like america and then imported but because there isnt a huge demand for them over here i think the importation jacks up the price a lot because they are not on mass and there is more demand in america than australia.
And to that guy that said it IS japanese, theres nothing wrong with japanese anything, for instance japanese cars and motors are brilliant!

Honestly man, Zen's right. Just because something's old doesn't mean it's good. From 1 lousy pic of the drum, the hardware is obviously beat. Any idea what kind of condition those bearing edges are in? How are the individual plies holding up? Hey, it MAY sound okay, possibly good, but there is NO information in that auction that would give any serious or knowledgeable drum buyer or collector any reason to jump at that drum. The risk/reward ratio on that drum DOES NOT warrant bidding on it.

The winner of the auction looks like he likes buying crappy old drums, though. Hey Zen, got any old clunkers laying around any more? Looks like this guy pays top dollar! Haha!

I've picked up better drums than that one out of DUMPSTERS!

I don't understand the comment about australia having a lack of quality drums... BRADY drums are amongst the finest drums made!
