Default Good Price on Used Roland TD-6V?

I have never owned an electric kit before, but gig on my bandmate's Roland TD-6. The only problem is that the kit registers two hits often on the hi hat and the sensors don't seem to pick up my strokes on the hi hat or ride (solution?).

I may pick one up for myself to gig on if the price is right to help with these problems. I found a TD-6V for about $650 on craigslist and everything seems to be in pretty lightly used condition. Everything is stock with a mesh snare and three rubber toms.

Is this a good price? Any ideas to fix my friend's seemingly burned out cymbals?

It's been awhile since I owned a TD-6, but the problems you're having can usually be adjusted by tweaking the trigger settings (sensitivity, scan time, mask time), unless the pads are simply worn out. Sometimes you can tweak the parameters to get a little more life out of them, but there may come a point where the problem pad needs repair. All this is assuming rubber pads.

As for price...IF it is in near pristine conditions, AND includes everything (kick pad, HH pedal, etc), it probably is a fair price (but I'd still try to talk them down, cash-in-hand).
