All the gear listed below is used gear. I have listed all damage/defects that I am aware of and in some cases I have also described how the gear has been handled. For some items I can show the original receipt if requested. I cannot hand them over however because I have made business tax claims using these receipts and need them for records and they also have financial info on them.

All prices have HST included in them already (I am HST registered and will provide a receipt by email). Cash only and no trades.

Pearl Muffle Heads (16 and 22)

Good for quiet practicing. Work well on toms and bass drums if you keep a real resonant head on the bottom/front. Great if you need to practice quietly and the pads of an electronic kit (one that doesn’t incorporate muffle heads) would be too loud for your situation. Might work nicely in combination with a set of specialty quiet cymbals (many on the market now). They might even work well with muffle heads on both sides of the drum (not sure). Probably don’t work great on a snare drum and won’t work well if you like to play rim shots on your toms. It is possible they may work well with triggers (to send a signal to a sound processor to trigger drum samples and then send to your head phones etc..) but I cannot be sure. I will sell both together or separately.

Condition

22 is worn more then the 16 because of the impact of the beater, but I don’t bury the beater so the wear and tear in this regard shouldn’t be too bad. One of the heads may have been mounted on a drum that had a rough/sharp/jagged spot on the bearing edge but I am not sure which head it was. Although they were purchased about 15 years ago they actually haven’t been played on for most of that time.

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.

Asking Prices:

$33 Canadian for the 22 and 16 together.

$19 Canadian for the 22.

$14 Canadian for the 16

Original Prices Paid:

16″ original price was $19.54 Canadian (purchased in 2004).

Not sure of exact original price for the 22 or what year it was purchased in but likely somewhat proportional to the above price for the 16 and likely purchased approximately around the same time. Although they were purchased about 15 years ago they actually haven’t been played on for most of that time.

 

(3) Gibraltar SC-DWLRY- “Yamaha style” Hex Mount L Arm (not made or certified by Yamaha- made by Gibraltar). For mounting drums that use the hex rod attachment (assuming same diameter). They are one solid piece so the arm itself won’t wear out like a tom arm that has moving parts can. Pretty much brand new and not used much at all. I notice also that when you hit a drum that is on it the drum moves up and down for quite a while (very short movement in millimeters) but I don’t think it’s enough to effect playing accuracy very much (i.e. hitting the rim accidentally because it is moving).

Condition

I do notice that they are not perfectly straight. When you attach your drum it might be angled slightly from side to side (on the axis perpendicular to the rod). Best to use these with a clamp that can swivel perpendicular to the rod a bit to compensate, but will also work if you rotate the rod slightly to the right or left to find the point where the drum is level relative to you. 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. May have been left unattended at gig locations overnight. But again, they are pretty much unused.

Asking Price: $15.00 Canadian each. Will sell individually.

Original Price Paid (purchased in 2016): $25.98 Canadian each.

(3) Pearl ADP30 (or similar model) Multi Clamp Triple Hole). Will sell individually. 2 are basically unused and one has been gigged hard. Highly adjustable hole so you can mount to many different sizes of tubes and then use the remaining 2 holes to put cymbal, tom, percussion mounts etc… Has notches for memory locks. Swinging wing nut on one side.

Condition

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. Have been left unattended at gig locations overnight. One has been gigged hard and has had duct tape attached to it to keep the bolts on the non swinging wing nut sides from loosening when the clamp is not on a stand and being transported (no parts are broken- there just may be some sticky tape gunk leftover in spots). The other two are basically unused.

Asking Price: $30.00 Canadian each. Will sell individually.

Original Price Paid (purchased in 2015): $45.19 Canadian each

(1) Gibraltar Triple Hole Multi Clamp SC-4429. Highly adjustable hole so you can mount to many different sizes of tubes and then use the remaining 2 holes to put cymbal, tom percussion mounts etc… Has notches for memory locks.

(1) Plastic Remo Practice Pad RT-0008-00. I think it has adjustable tension (screw driver needed- not drum key). Fairly loud for a practice pad, so not great if you are needing to practice quietly, but a good bounce to it. It is about 10” but playing surface is about 8” so I think this would be considered the 8” version. Has a rim section so has the option of practicing patterns with rim shots. Screws into the top of a cymbal stand (with the correct screw diameter- fairly standard though). Can also go on a snare stand but I think it would have to be a smaller diameter snare basket to tighten around it.

Condition

Has been used moderately and left in the car (outside) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions and may have been over tightened. I cannot say what the condition of the head and bearing edges etc.. are in relation to all of this but it seems fine.

Asking Price: $20.00 Canadian

Original Price Paid: Unsure but likely around $33.05 Canadian

(1) Humes and Berg DR642BK 10” tom case (long depth) no foam. Very strong case. Can fit a 10” diameter tom with a long depth (or a shorter 10” tom with another small item separated by padding). Original click and release strap included.

Condition

Has been gigged hard and left in the car (outside) for long periods of time in very cold, very hot temperatures and very humid and very dry conditions. Has been left unattended at gig locations overnight. Had duct tape on it for labeling purposes (not because of damage) so may have tape gunk on it in spots. A few chips in it here and there but still in great working condition and should last a long time.

Asking Price: $60.00 Canadian

Original Price Paid: $84.74 Canadian

(1) 12” Cross Rock Drum Bag. Good drum bag with zipper and handle. Hardly used at all. Can fit a 12” drum (could possibly fit a larger drum) or be used as an accessory bag (multiple percussion or hardware items separated by padding).

Condition

Pretty much unused but 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. May have been left unattended at gig locations overnight.

Asking Price: $18.00

Original Price Paid: Unsure but likely around $29.66

(2) Supra Cymbal Pads Not the best way to create a cymbal set up for quiet practicing and not great if you need your practice kit to be very quiet (i.e. in an apartment). Do not sound or feel like cymbals- just something to simulate the shape and position a cymbal would be in on a drum set (they have a bell on them). Probably best used as hi hats as the best sound they create is the sound of two hi hat cymbals closing together to make the closed pedal chick sound. Attach to a cymbal stand the same way a normal cymbal would. When hit with sticks they have just an initial thwack (moderate volume level on initial attack and a very quiet low end resonance on sustain). Because they are lighter then real cymbals they don’t move that naturally and don’t move that smoothly against the cymbal thread protector (depending on the angle they are set at). Not sure, but might be useful if used with triggers. Will sell them together or separately.

Condition

Used but in good condition and more then usable.

Have been used moderately and 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.

Soundoff Drum Set Silencer (HQ Percussion Products) (18” Bass Drum Practice Pad) Not the best way to outfit your bass drum for quiet practice but fairly decent. Still has a bit of low end and still sounds enough like a bass drum for practice purposes. Foam pad with a hard practice pad in the center for the beater to hit. Attaches over your normal drum head with an elastic band, plastic hook and pad system (but one hook is missing- still works though). Not too difficult to attach but not super easy either.

Condition

Used but in good condition and more then usable. One attachment hook missing but it still works. Scuff mark on hard practice pad section.

Has been used moderately and 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.

Asking Price: $25 Canadian

Practice Pads For Cymbals and Hi Hats Sound dampeners for cymbals and hi hats. Not the best way to outfit your kit for quiet practicing but they do make them much quieter. The cymbals won’t feel or sound like cymbals but they’ll definitely be quieter. The pad that goes in between the 2 hi hats is probably the most effective one as it can still sound a bit like the closed hi hat chick sound when played with the pedal (depending on the size of the hi hats relative to the size of the pad). 3 pads- one for top hi hat cymbal, one to go in between the 2 hi hats (or could be used on a drum- although it has a small hole in the center for the hi hat rod) and one to be used on a ride or crash cymbal. The one for the top hi hat cymbal has one attachment hole and fits a 14″ cymbal but could possibly work okay on smaller sizes of hi hats and could work on a 14″ crash or ride. The one for the ride or crash has 2 attachment holes and would fit a 16″ and 18″. The one that goes in between the hi hats I think is designed for 14″ hi hats but is slightly under 14″. I think this is on purpose to allow the edges of the hi hats to still touch when closing. Unsure of brand. Will sell all 3 together or the 2 hi hat pads separately from the ride/crash pad.

Condition

Used moderately and in mediocre condition. They weren’t played on that much but I think because of age the material is starting to shed when you rub it (i.e falling apart). I’m not sure if impact will cause the problem to worsen or if it mostly just happens when rubbing the material. Should definitely be able to get some mileage out of them- just not sure how 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.

Ride/Crash Pad and Both Hi Hat Pads $18 Canadian
