Sell us your Gear

For 25 years Drummersuperstore has specialized in buying, selling and trading used musical equipment all day, every day. You will find a huge variety of new, and used gear in our store and online. To ensure that we are providing the best customer experience in our industry, our used gear is inspected, cleaned, and prepped so the used gear you’re buying is always in great working condition, and assured to be 100% functional (unless otherwise noted). We don't like to consider ourselves a 'Last Case' resort, however, we are the 'Fast Case' resort if you need to sell your item today! It is very hard to make a good assumption digitally, therefore we will rarely (if ever) quote you a price over the phone or from a photo... we request that you bring it down to the store in person so we can review it and make a fair assessment after doing some research, on the value of your item.

Whatever you think you have, as long as its music related in some fashion - bring it on down so we can take a look! No appointment necessary.

Consign your Gear
If for some reason you do not agree with the price we are offering you. That is completely fine. We can always consign your item and sell it for whatever you are asking. If your asking too much for an item then the worst that will happen is no one will purchase and it will sit - eventually we will call you and let you know its not selling if at which point you still wont lower your asking price, we will ask you to come pick it up at no charge to you.

If we sell your consigned item in the store, we take a 20% consignment fee out of the price it was sold for. You must wait until the buyer has deemed to be a happy buyer, and not returning the item before we can pay you. If your item can not, or does not sell in the store - we might have to list it online to move it. If your item sells online, it is subject to a 30% consignment fee - the 10% additional being because of the costs associated with selling fees when selling items online. The item will need to be delivered to the customer, and positive feedback received (aka confirmed they will not be returning it) before we can pay you. If a customer is interested in your item (online or in store) and makes an offer, we will contact you with their proposed amount and see if you will accept it. We do this stuff every day, and with the current state of technology, it is very easy to see what something is worth in a current market....please be realistic when considering your asking price for consignments, if you are expected to get 3x what an item is selling for it is our duty to make you aware your sights are set too high, and at that point we will recommend you persue selling it on your own, as our time and real estate here is not abundantly available and we can not waste either of those on buyers trying to sell their item for more than its worth. We appreciate your cooperation.


- Bring It In
Bring us your musical instruments like guitars, amps, drums, keyboards, MIDI equipment, mixers, pro sound equipment, band instruments as well as related accessories. No appointment is necessary, if we are open, we are buying. If you need assistance bringing it in, we can help you unload, just let a staff member know.

- We Will Review &  Research
We’ll review and research each item and identify a fair market value for your products. While we are doing this, feel free to check out all of the cool used gear in our stores. We will compare similiar items that have sold in a recent market. We do not go by current listed items - we must look at SOLD items...  please understand anyone can list any item they want online for any price they want, it doesn't mean it is worth what they are asking.

- We'll Make An Offer
We will then make you an offer based on that fair market value or similiar comparison. We are very transparent and will show you what your item is selling for recently. We will shoot you a price that we find do-able, considering we have overhead, and resell value to take into account - a general rule of thumb is relatively 50% of what it is selling for. If you like the offer, we will pay you on the spot or you can trade against the cool, used gear you find in our store.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although we don't require items to be clean, complete, or perfect. Presentation and Perception stand without saying as important factors when it comes to the exchange. We will compare your item to similiar condition items online, therefore, the nicer your item looks - the nicer the condition it will be compared to and thus, the more value it should bring. We do offer the best possible price to every seller, based on the supply, demand and condition of your specific products. However, making sure the product is clean, functional and has all of the related accessories, manuals and adapters will certainly improve the wholesale value of your gear.

Even if your item is non-working and for parts - we will still make you some type of an offer - we may not be able to offer you very much, but we are known to purchase non-working instruments for art projects, wall hangers, or display items - so bring it on down!

Our certified buyers receive extensive training on how to appropriately value all categories of musical instruments and equipment.

Upright Pianos and Organs are very heavy, require multiple guys to help move, and pianos must be tuned every time they are moved. At this time, we are not accepting any upright pianos, grand pianos, or upright organs. Honestly we get a call or two a week of people begging us to move it and take one for free so selling one, is going to be quite tough in this day and age. Is what it is. We will, however, be happy to review any digital pianos, keyboards, or synthesizers.
