    Default used cymbal price?

    Looking for price advice. I'm going to sell a Sabian B8 set. 14" hats, 17" thin crash, 14" thin crash, 10" splash and 20" ride. They are about 2 years in very good shape. I'm not trying to sell them on drumchat just trying to figure out a fair price. I was thinking $250.00.



    Thanks

    Thanks
    For me (and many others) the general rule is 50% of the original price, not the SRP, but what you would pay for them new at a reasonable price.
    If they are in exceptional condition they might go for 60% or more if youre lucky.

    Believe it or not, if you make 50% of what you payed, its a win for you.

    If you are able to afford it, and dont need to sell these to fund purchasing new ones, and you can find someone who will seriously appreciate the gesture... Make them a gift to a kid who needs something of decent quality to learn on. Stress paying it forward. The drumgods will reward you.

    But yes, 50-75% of what you gave new for them,. depending on condition.

    +1 here on passing them on.

    As some one who has tried to sell his used cymbals, I finaly offered them to my daughters Highscool marching band. Even though they never contacted me for them, I felt real good about donating them to a good cause rather than my recouping money.

    But and this is a big but, it's totaly a personal thing. It's totaly up to you.
