We used to sell drums at our store, not the expensive ones and high ends ones like the premier acoustic but more like the starter drum set at $500 a piece. But we don’t have them anymore – why? because every kid and every adult that comes into the store would play with the one on display and scratch the hell out of the drums. Some even go as far as trying to be pros on the drum set and others would let their kids do just about anything to destroy our drum set.
Sure it wasn’t a very expensive drum set but being a small business like ours, we cannot afford to sell scratchy or old stuff. We ended up selling the display drum set for much lesser than we paid for it because of its condition. So when the drum sets got sold, we didn’t bring in more and then everyone is currently asking if we do have drum sets.
So we tell them where they can order it and also explained to them that we really have no space to house and display drum sets and plus this site that we purchase all our music instruments has just about everything you need in a drum set.
