Estimating Value on a Set of Congas

Recently my grandmother asked me to help her sell my grandfather's congas. I have no idea what they are worth and neither does she. Does anyone have any idea how I might determine what (and maybe where) to sell them. There is a drum consignment shop in the neighborhood, and I've looked on eBay, but I really don't know what sort of ball park figure to look at. Your feedback is appreciated.

I would go on line to places like eBay & see what comparable congas are getting these days. Make sure you check the condition, as that makes a lot of difference. I know that a friend sold a pair of newer congas for a couple of hundred dollars, which is about right. You could also see what a pawnbroker would give you for them.
