The rise of the second hand drum head market...

Post  Mark [Admin] on Tue Nov 29, 2011 7:43 pm

Has anyone noticed how many people are selling old used drum heads
on trademe at the moment? Used drum heads seem to have a market in
New Zealand and given the price of new heads it's pretty understandable.

A new snare head will set you back close to $40 or above depending on
head make/type whereas in the US you can buy the same head for around $15.
I'm not sure why the big price discrepancy but if shipping was cheaper from the
states i'm sure no one would be buying heads in NZ. I'm already buying sticks
from the US where I get 3 pairs landed for the cost of one in Auckland.

Where are you getting the sticks from Mark? I did grab some heads and sticks via amazon but recently the shipping has gone nuts.

And Dynasonic, where are you getting the heads. Seems like a very good deal.

A place called musiczoo on ebay. The sticks I am using (zildjian artist)
were $5 a pair last time and I contracted them direct to get a cheaper
postage price which was around $10 for 3 pairs.

Smile they come up on ebay [ stores] listings ,usually music shops selling out old stock,not regular,so you have to wade through the stock when they have a regular listing and then try to negotiate a deal .... sometimes away from ebay ,which can be risky ,but if your patient you can get the odd good deal.
