What is a Gretsch 4 Piece Renown Drum Kit Worth?
Gretsch Renown Maple
My husband recently passed away and he left a 4 piece set of Gretsch Renown Maple drums in black. I cannot find this set on any of the websites and was told they don't make them in this color anymore. Is that correct? How can I find out what this drum set is worth?
I mwas able to find a Gretsch Renown 4 piece kit in black at one of the online stores. That kit had a floor tom, which it appears is missing from your kit. It was also a "Shell Pack"--includes only the drums, not hardware or cymbals.
The MSR price for that kit is $2,460.00 and the dealer is offering it for $1,599.00. That should give you some idea.
The saleability of your set will most likely be lowered because there is no floor tom. On the other hand, the hardware and cymbals add quite a bit to the value.
I would start out by asking for about $1200 and see what happens. Or start even higher--you can always go down.
