Sounds like someone who really doesn't want to sell those drums...

"Thier value as a musical instrument is minimal compared to their historic value. "

I love the Romantics, but do the drums really have that much a part in history? I guess a drum set with the band's logo, perhaps a set you could see in the pictures/videos on the band would have some historic value. If I was a drummer, and was looking for a drum set, I might pay a few hundred dollrars more for that set, but thousands of dollars more? No way!

Could it be this drum set? http://www.romanticsdetroit.com/music/king-biscuit.html

ok here are the facts about those drums:

  • Jimmy gave that guy those drums 20 yrs. ago for him painting a car for him.

  • Jimmy did not use them in Australia or Japan either only for a few months after the third album.

  • This guy called Jimmy and offered to sell them back to him.

  • Jimmy doesn't want them or could care less about them, he said they are worth at the most $1200.

Thanks for the info Bookies.  It'll be interesting to see if the price falls any further.

i agree with dennis.....they would have to have the official romantics logo to raise my eye brows to purchase them.......if i had the dinero to purchase a set of romantics drums i wouldnt hesitate.

The guy probably shot himself in the foot by trying to sell the drums for way too much money. 

If he knew anything about auctions he would have started the bidding at a lower price and then had a "reserve price (which I don't think is usually listed)--just to get an idea as to what someone MIGHT pay for  Jimmy's drums.... 

But, now that we all know how much money he wants, it makes him look very suspicious...

WOW~ So, this guy has been selling these for quite some time now!  At least he got a bit smarter and lowered the starting bid to $10,000.  I guess he still didn't get that!  Maybe he should try and get them signed!

They probably are really Jimmy's old drums.  But that guy's gonna be listing those for a long time if he thinks he's gonna get TEN LARGE for 'em.
