Right! I have the following electronic drum components for sale:
13 x Simmons electronic drum pads from late eighties (red)
01 x Simmons electronic snare pad with real Remo drum head (red)
02 x Simmons kick drum pads from late eighties (red)
01 x Roland electronic kick drum with Mapex pedal
01 x Roland PM-16 trigger-to-MIDI interface
All items are working.
The Simmons snare / tom pads do show signs of wear but are still in good condition, especially for their age (thirty years plus).
One of the Simmons kick drums is fine but the other is missing the pedal mount bracket and has some slight cosmetic damage to the rubber. Both of these issues can be fixed or put right.
The Roland KD-7 and the Mapex pedal are like new.
The Roland PM-16 is over twenty years old and is in great condition. This will be supplied with an appropriate power supply.
All standard Simmons pads are £65.00 each.
Simmons kick drum (good) is £100.00.
Simmons kick drum (damaged) is £80.00.
Roland KD-7 and Mapex pedal combo is £150.00 plus £12.80 sipping inc. insurance to UK mainland.
Roland PM-16 is £180.00 plus £12.80 sipping inc. insurance to UK mainland.
NOTE:No racking is for sale. The racking, all drum arms, cymbal mounting hardware and stand have been 'borrowed' from my own Simmons SDX kits and is used only to display the items that are for sale.
ALSO:The cymbals shown are available separately here.
I have a couple of these for sale at the moment. Purchased second-hand a few months ago, they do show some signs of wear. Having said that, they’re both totally functional and have clean optics.
I’m including a Sony NP-F750 battery (7.2V / 4200mAh) as shown and a charger station with mains cable. The power supply shown will NOT be supplied as it is for another camera (my bad). I will also include a battery eliminator and original Sony remote control.
Oh, I almost forgot! You'll notice a Sigma 18 - 200 mm f/3.5 - f/6.3 lens attached to the camera via a Metabones adapter. Well, they're included in the sale as well!!!!!
PRICE: £700.00 plus £20.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
If you’ve got loads of video on mini DV and you need to stream it into a PC, then look no further. The Sony GV-D1000 is perfect. With a preview screen and loads of controls, it used to be an industry standard for this kind of job.
This one’s in near mint condition. The only bummer is that over the years, I’ve misplaced the original battery. Having said that, I can’t imagine that it would have had much juice in it. As you can see from the pictures, it is being supplied with the original power supply and remote.
IMPORTANT: This is the PAL version.
PRICE: £150.00 plus £10.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
In nice condition, this 2 x 10 bass cab which also has a tweeter, works just fine. It’s light but powerful and partners well with the Trace Elliot GP12 SMX that's also for sale at the moment and which is available separately although appears in some of the photographs.
The cab is rated at 400 Watts and is 8 Ohms impedance.
NOTE: The cab has professional Speakon and XLR sockets only. Let me know if you need a jack to Speakon speaker cable
PRICE: £65.00. COLLECTION FROM HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, HERTFORDSHIRE ONLY.
I'm a big fan of speaker simulator technology. You just can't get that consistent, solid and totally controllable sound from microphones, without investing in resources that the vast majority of us would find quite impossible.
Used by the likes of Iron Maiden and many more, the SPL Transducer has built itself a remarkable reputation in a very short space of time.
This box sits between your amp and your 8Ω cab. Set your amp output impedance to 8Ω and you’re good to go. Delivering a consistent signal for recording and reducing the output to your cab by 50%, the Transducer allows you to record at lower sound pressure levels and gives huge flexibility over what you're recording.
The switches and dials on the front make the Transducer hugely versatile and an array of outputs on the back is just so welcome.
I bought these from Maplin Electronics many years ago but don’t be deceived. I originally used these for recording video conferencing and they were just great. Okay, so they run on small batteries. When I bought them, I fitted XLR connectors but the outputs are NOT balanced outputs. The quality and reliability of these microphones however is really very good.
I have three of these.
PRICE: £15.00 each or £40.00 for all three plus £5.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
This box sits between your tripod and your camera and allows you to use professional microphones on your rig. The Tascam DR60D Mk II takes a SD card and can record directly to that but it also passes the audio through to the 3.5mm stereo audio input on your camera.
With a stereo 3.5mm input as well as two XLR inputs, the Dr-60D Mk II can actually record four channels. There are controls to mix down to two channels to send to your camera. All four channels are recorded separately on the SD card.
With phantom power and gain controls on all channels, it’s such a handy bit of kit. Over the years, I’ve done a lot of video and since the early days, I’ve noticed how the quality of audio can easily render a really good video, absolutely useless. With a pair of really nice microphones, this box ensures that the audio component of your video will be as good as your video!
