  • Who Would Buy Used Mesh Heads?

    So as I was looking on eBay for a 12" Mesh Head, I found someone selling a LOT OF TORN Mesh Heads for $45. Who would buy a torn mesh head? Are they worth anything to anybody? Am I missing something?

    Lol, I'm usually the type that thinks one man's trash is another's treasure - and can DIY just about anything, but even I am struggling to understand what you could do with these. Maybe cannibalize a couple of them to make patches and patch the others from underneath with some super glue? They're going to be ugly as sin, but I guess they would work for an emergency replacement in a gig situation...or making a small ugly second kit for your kid to beat on or something...

      Also, I've had the same roland heads for almost 12 years and none of them even have any worn spots. Was the person playing these drums using swords lol?

        I'll admit, I have gone through 2 mesh heads on my snare. The first was the original Remo that came with my TD-30 and it tore through the top layer in a year; I blame my drumstick tip (wood) for that one. The second is a Prism 3-ply that the middle layer has a "running" tear but still functions great, but I ordered a replacement for quicker replacement. I play pretty hard and the Prism head I tighten pretty good for better positional sensing.

          Brings up a good question, what do most of you use for drumstick tips; nylon or wood?

                Nothing wrong with buying used mesh heads if they are in good condition because they last for years but i don't know why anyone would buy used mesh heads with holes in them. I have never wore out a mesh head so i don't even know how these people are getting holes in them,my guess is felt beaters on mesh bass drum heads and wood tip sticks on the others.

                    Yeah I use wood tips also and not a mark on the mesh heads and Iíve had these for years. Iím not particularly a soft hitter either although I donít drive the sticks into the head.
