The introduction of new drums and accessories like the tom-toms and high hat cymbals during the late 1920s and 30s made drum kits more expensive and helped revolutionize drumming techniques for many of the most recognizable names in music.
If you are shopping for new drums, prepare to spend at least $500. Or even up to $5000 for the most expensive custom drums. Or perhaps if you like vintage instruments, then you might be interested in “Moon the Loon’s” custom made 1968 Premier drum kit. Keith Moon’s aged drum kit luckily survived his antics on and off stage and now is the most expensive drum kit in the world. In 2004, Christie’s London auctioned the drum kit for $252,487 or £139,650.
Keith Moon is often regarded as one the greatest all time rock and roll drummer. His unique style was most likely attributed to the fact that he was not always relied upon to keep time while playing with The Who. This allowed him to improvise and further develop his own style of drumming.
