Hi drummer dudes.....
I was wondering if any one here might be able to put a value on these.
They have been hanging around for years and I really can't justify keeping them.
There are only 3 but, I think they might be worth a few bucks.
I also have cases and the mounting hardware.
I believe they are from the 70's.....Yamaha Maple Customs.......3 Toms.....I believe they are 10", 12" and 16"
All help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I don't want to give a wrong number so I won't give you any, but these are very nice drums. It also looks like they are still using the same lugs as the newer maple customs. The newer ones have better mounts and shell making has improved in the past decades, but then there are people who like old things for various reasons. Unfortunately there is no nostalgia for old yamaha drums as I am aware of so they probably didn't go up in value but in good condition they shouldn't have degraded much in value.
I think that they are probably better value than you can sell them for because they are truly excellent drums, so sell them to someone you like ^_^

I actually gave them away to a very good friend that showed a sincere interest in learning to play......
along with a vintage snare and some hardware that was laying about.....

Thanks for the input man.
