How much are used Pearl drums worth? There's no single answer to this question. It really depends on, number one how old they are, number two the condition they're in, and number three what model they are and how expensive they were to start with. Depending on whether we're talking about the Export model, the Sessions, Sessions Custom. I could just go through the whole list of Pearl models. The value is going to vary. If they're in good condition, these drum are pretty much almost in new condition. They've got a little bit of dust on them but they're basically brand new. They could be worth close to as much as they cost new or if any upgrades have been made they might even be worth more. So, a drum set that might have cost $1,200 new could be worth anywhere from $700 to $1,000 used. If you have a more expensive Pearl model from the seventies or eighties that isn't even in production anymore than those could actually be worth more than they originally cost. They might have cost $500 during the seventies or maybe even less considering inflation and they would be worth anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000 today. The other thing to consider is how many pieces they are. If it's in this case a five piece kit, three toms, a bass drum and a snare that's going to be worth, in most cases, more than if you just have a three piece kit which would be a snare, bass drum and two toms. So, all those things, all those factors can affect how much your used Pearl drums are worth.
