Used Gear For Sale

Used Gear For Sale

I will deliver items to you within reasonable distance at no extra charge! Or we can instead meet at a place that is convenient for us both.

Contact michaelmcneil@sympatico.ca

In most cases I have provided photos and a short video to showcase the items.

        All the gear listed below is used gear (mostly 2nd hand but in some cases 3rd or more hand). I have listed most if not all damage/defects and missing/replaced parts that I am aware of and in some cases I have also described how the gear has been handled. Please note that I have taken the approach of erring on the side of disclosing as much as I can about any negative wear and tear or condition issues of the items, so this may give the impression (for some items and maybe not others) that the items are in worse condition then they actually are.

        For some items I can show the original receipt if requested. I cannot hand them over however because I need them for financial records purposes.

        Please note that free delivery only applies to the Ottawa and surrounding areas within a reasonable distance from me and this judgment is made at my discretion. For delivery outside this area (or within it but at a significant distance from me) we would need to have the item delivered to you by professional delivery service (purchaser pays the cost to me plus a $11.30 fee for my time and then I organize and take care of it). Other options include meeting in the Ottawa area if you will be here at some point, waiting to plan a free delivery at a time when I will be in your area. Or I can simply charge a travel fee and deliver it to you (fee is on a case by case basis).

        All prices have 13% HST and/or 5% GST already included in them (I am HST registered and can provide you with a receipt by email). I accept Cash, e Transfer or PayPal.

        Here are some drum and drum gear cases I have for sale. If you have any questions get in touch with me at michaelmcneil@sympatico.ca.

Used Hard Case Single Bass Drum Pedal Case

Condition

        Used moderately and in very good condition. Purchased in 2015. Unsure of materials. This is not a water proof case. Meant for a single bass drum pedal. Has 2 stretchy straps inside to secure the pedal at the heel plate end and the end that attaches to the bass drum hoop. Both straps in fairly good condition. Should fit most single bass drum pedals, but if you want specific measurements to check if it will fit with your pedal let me know and I will send them (i.e. long board pedals or other specialty design pedals). A bit dusty and some scratches and bangs. Best to wrap your pedal with some kind of soft towel after securing it for extra protection. Bulky case but I think it is meant to be that way so there is clearance between the sides of the case and the pedal in case of significant bangs. I think you have to (or at least I recommend) detaching your beater when putting it in the case as I think the spring would be under constant additional tension otherwise. Good if you want to really protect your pedal for travel. Wouldn’t be water proof. Also, I noticed that the clip that closes the case doesn’t sit quite right. It’s hard to explain, but the strap is attached slightly too close to the lip of the case. So when the other part of the case comes down it can’t quite overlap fully the way it should (probably not a problem unless you put small loose parts inside). Also good as an auxiliary case if you want to wrap a bunch of smaller things in towels and pile them in. I used it to hold a double bass drum pedal. I didn’t use the stretchy cords but instead piled the 2 pedals inside with the attachment bar and beaters. So it is possible some friction damage may have been caused to the stretchy cords (but if so, I think it would be fairly minimal). Has a carrying handle.

        Has been left in the car (outside) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions.

Used Hardware

        Here are some used practice pads I have for sale. If you have any questions get in touch with me at michaelmcneil@sympatico.ca.

Used Practice Pad With Velcro Leg Strap

        Unsure of materials. Practice pad comes with a velcro leg strap (attached). Unsure of brand. There is a U shaped leg rest going North/South and one going East/West underneath which creates a rounded contour to go on top of your leg. Can’t guarantee it will fit everyone properly. The velcro strap is in good condition but it is somewhat crudely stapled to the side (I believe it came that way and that it is secure.). I would describe the velcro strength/hold as medium. It is bulkier then some of the new models on the market right now but still fairly portable. It is one of the quieter practice pads. Playing surface is just under 6.5 inches and circular. About 1cm below the playing surface there is also a hard section that sticks out about 1 cm which can be used for a 2nd sound but would be awkward to reach and not sure if it is really meant to be played on (would likely create a wood block type sound). Not sure if this can stay attached while walking around (i.e. sliding down your leg etc..) but it’s possible.

Condition

        Used moderately and in very good condition. Purchased maybe 10 to 15 year ago but I don’t think it was played on much.

        May have been left in the car (outside) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions. Not sure what this may have done to the adhesive that keeps the pad and the backing together- but it seems very solid and in good working condition.

        Original Price Paid: (unsure of year purchased) Unsure

        Asking Price: I’m asking $23 Canadian Total for this, however in fairness I will let you know that they have some similar pads (some of which are smaller and some of which are about the same size) in approximately the $17, $25 and $35 range at Long and McQuades.

16” Remo Coated Ambassador Drum Head

(Head listed with estimated condition marked on scale of 1 to 10- relative to used heads).

Condition

        Overall, I think this are in great condition with very little wear.

        Head is likely 2 to 15 years old although this is not an indication of how long it have been played on (it has been stored for much of that time and has very little wear). If you have questions about the condition of the head, let me know and I will try give you more details. Unsure of materials. Head has been stored stacked with other heads in cases. I have good technique and I more or less allow the stick/beater to come off the head. So there are very few, if any dents or significant damage to the heads. Most of the wear is either from storage and/or just normal wear from being played on (i.e. the coating or texture may be worn off in places, there may be some dirt and gunk on the head, tone and ability to vibrate may not be as good anymore and the head may be seated/warped to suit the bearing edge/rims/shell of the drums they were on, so it is possible they may not seat well or tune well on other drums). May have been used on multiple drums or put on a drum, taken off and then put back on the same drum again but not in the same position. May have been played by other people who have used my drums. It is possible other people who may not allow the stick/beater to come off the head have played on them at gigs or tuned them in odd ways (drum sharing at gigs). I can’t say if they were seated properly when first put on the drums. May have been used on drums that have warped rims, uneven/rough/sharp bearing edges or drums that are out of round. Overall, I think it is in usable condition if you are looking for a cheap deal.

        Has been left in the car (outside) and/or garage (uncovered) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions. Not sure what affect this may have on it.

        Please note that the condition marked below is estimated on a scale of 1 to 10 relative to used head conditions (i.e. a condition of 10 does not mean brand new condition but very good condition for a used head). This is simply to give you an idea of how useful the head might be.

        Please note that the conditions marked below are estimated and are on a scale of 1 to 10 relative to used head conditions (i.e. a condition of 10 does not mean brand new condition but very good condition for a used head). This is simply to give you an idea of how useful the head might be.

12″ Evans Genera G1 (Coated) Estimated Condition: 5 (mediocre physical condition with some scuffs/scratches/dust and plenty of dirt. Coating scraped off in mostly small spots and a few larger spots. Significant dent near logo and bearing edge area. May have a warp in the head. Possibly some sticky gunk from moon gels or other tape/dampening systems. Some kind of textured material stuck on the head in places (could be removed). Surprisingly passes the tap test fairly well- has tone and sustain when tapped with very little distortion in the tone). $2

13″ Evans Genera G1 (Coated)

Estimated Condition: 6 (okay physical condition with some scuffs/scratches/dust and plenty of dirt. Coating scraped off in a few small spots. Possibly some sticky gunk from moon gels or other tape/dampening systems. Passes the tap test- has tone and sustain when tapped with a little distortion in the tone). $2.25

Set of 2 Used Remo Clear Emperor Drum Heads

(Heads listed below with estimated condition marked on scale of 1 to 10- relative to used heads) Price listed is for all heads together but will sell individually.

Purchase individually or take both for $2.50.

Condition

        Overall, I think these are in rough to usable condition depending on the specific head, but a very good deal for $1 to $4.50 per head. Pictures do not necessarily correspond to exact specific heads listed below (they are just a few examples). Heads are likely 2 to 15 years old although this is not an indication of how long they have been played on (some have been stored for much of that time). If you have questions about the condition of a specific head, let me know and I will try give you more details. Unsure of materials. Heads have been stored stacked on top of each other in cases. I have good technique and I more or less allow the stick/beater to come off the head. So there are very few, if any dents or significant damage to the heads. Most of the damage is either from storage and/or just normal wear from being played on (i.e. the coating or texture may be worn off in places, there may be some dirt and gunk on the heads, tone and ability to vibrate may not be as good anymore and the heads may be seated/warped to suit the bearing edge/rims/shell of the drums they were on, so it is possible they may not seat well or tune well on other drums). Some non bass drum heads may also have been used as bass drums heads including some of the smaller sized heads (tom used as bass drum etc..) and some bass drum heads could have been used as regular drum heads (i.e. played with a stick). May have been used on multiple drums or put on a drum, taken off and then put back on the same drum again but not in the same position. Some may be warped. May have been played by other people who have used my drums. It is possible other people who may not allow the stick/beater to come off the head have played on them at gigs or tuned them in odd ways (drum sharing at gigs). I can’t say if they were seated properly when first put on the drums. May have been used on drums that have warped rims, uneven/rough/sharp bearing edges or drums that are out of round. Overall, I think are in usable condition if you are looking for a cheap deal.

10″ Remo Weather King Emperor (Clear) Estimated Condition: 4 (very good physical condition with minor scuffs/scratches/dents/dust and some dirt, possibly some sticky gunk from moon gels or other tape/dampening systems, does not pass the tap test- has almost no tone and sustain when tapped). $1

12″ Remo Weather King Emperor (Clear) Estimated Condition: 4.5 (mediocre physical condition with minor scuffs/scratches/dust and some dirt. 3 significant dents. Possibly some sticky gunk from moon gels or other tape/dampening systems. Passes the tap test- good tone and sustain (okay low fundamental but with some overtones and distortion). $1.50

Used Drum Heads

        Here is some miscellaneous used drum and music gear I have for sale. If you have any questions get in touch with me at michaelmcneil@sympatico.ca.

Unused Previously Owned Hand Pro Mark Stick Rapp

        All in all I think this is still very usable. Unsure of materials. It is in the packaging though it is opened. Came with 4 Stick Rapp’s but now has 2 (could do 2 sticks). Meant to add grip to drum sticks, reduce shock and absorb moisture but I can’t vouch for that as I have never used them (at least not much). I believe that the remaining 2 are unused since they are still on the tape backing (based on the nature of this tape backing it seems almost impossible that someone could have taken the backing off and put it back on. It is supposed to come with 2 finishing tape strips to seal it off at the ends but they are missing. Supposedly they are reusable, so you could take them off your sticks when your sticks wear out and put them on another pair of sticks. Probably more then 10 years old so I’m not sure how well the adhesive will work. I’m guessing it would be okay.

Condition

        May have been left in the car (outside) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions and not sure how this may have affected the adhesive.

        Asking Price: $1.00 Canadian

        Original Price Paid:

        I don’t think I have the receipt, but the price tag is still on it and according to this it is was $12.37 Canadian with tax included. Looks like a number of price tags were stuck on top of each other so the price obviously changed at some point.
