I know with horns a lot of the time, the corps will sell them off after the season and all you have to do is get in touch with the director and see what he says. However, with drums, I don't know if that's the case. Because they're specially designed every year, at least in terms of finish/wrap, I don't know if the manufacturer takes them back after that year and then sells them themselves or if the corps has the option of selling them. Usually though, if they sell them, they'll sell them as a set (or the majority of them as a set) to a high school or other group.

I have some friends I can ask, though, let me get back to you on this.



I wanted a Monty Python quote but it was too many chars...

Do you specifically want a drum that has been played by a corps, or just one that is of the same model and type?

Craigslist is full of nice corps level snare drums here in the Dallas area. I got a Pearl split shell like Phantom used back in the 90s for $50! He only wanted $75 to start with and it's in great shape. I put new heads on it and it sounds awesome.

But I also see some of the newer Yamaha SFZ models and they are going in the $300 range. Ouch.
