What is the value of my Sonor Lite drum set?

by Michael
(Wilmington, Delaware U.S.)

I am looking to sell my Sonor lite drums, but i'm not sure of they're worth. I bought them new in 1988,and played them for about 5 years and packed them away. They are in MINT condition, and I've just put new drum heads on. sizes :
22" Bass drum
14"X 7.25" snare
12" ,13" mounted toms
16" floor tom
and double tom mount
They are all Scandinavian birch shells, with a Black Lacquer finish.
I know they are worth a lot, but I've seen prices all over the board.
Also, where is the best place to post them for sale ? I live in Wilmington,Delaware U.S.


Hi, Michael--

There is no Blue Book for drum sets, probably due to the fact that there are so many configurations of each set.

The best I can do for you is to post this and maybe some of our readers will have ideas for you. I would be good if they would tell you what they would be willing to pay for the set. Any drum set is, after all, worth exactly what someone will pay for it.

You might even find a buyer from readers of this post. It happens a lot, so be sure to keep up with the comments on your post.

I couldnt see the date of this post but I am interested in the snare that goes with the set. If you are willing to separate it please let me know.

Thanks, Tom
