Default Best place to buy/sell used drums in U.K

I am selling a few drums / cymbals but I haven't found a really active website for drummers from U.K for classified adverts. This forum is dominated by USA, whilst the Mike Dolbear site seems rather run down & was always poorly designed.

Anyone found anything good beyond Ebay or GumTree?

Preloved is a good gumtree alternative

Also, search facebook for pages/groups for local classifieds. I'm sold lots of stuff (not just drums) through facebook forsale/wanteds.

I woulda thought ebay was best as it gets the biggest number of viewers. Having said that I've only bought and sold cymbals on it and they're in a different league shipping-wise compared to drums.

Thanks.... willl try Facebook, hadn't thought of that.

Problem with Ebay is they are greedy beyond compare. I mean, just last week they increased their Final Valuation Fee cap from 40 to 75... then they hit you with 3.4% Paypal fees. It's very difficult to profit from any item with those kind of margins.

When I'm looking for used stuff I check out Graham Russell Drums. They're based in Hampshire but trade over the internet: no idea what their buying habits are like, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask . . .
