Some help if you may...

Since I've got my new set and hardware, I've decided to sell my Pearl
strap drive Eliminators.

The link axe has some scratches from rubbing against the tightening bolt
of my Kickdrum, and there are some signs of rust. Also the paint has gone
on the plates of the pedals. A part from that I have all the parts that came
with the pedals.

Considering that I payed it 385 euro, and the details said up above what
would you guys think is a good price to sell these?

Thanks,
Me.

usually, rust like that, oxidation from moisture in the air, can be sanded off pretty easily. as for scratches- don't expect to buy used gear with no surface blemishes whatsoever, and to anyone who does... please, don't kid yourself.

i'd clean, polish, whatever and try to get those pedals looking as good as new, even if that is impossible. those things usually get very dusty; so make them look as pretty as possible. anywhere from 250 to 300 is what i'd recommend. as long as you have all the parts and they are working parts, who cares?
