Has anybody had luck trading in rock band drum sets?  I saw the pedals posted above but I have the whole pro set.  The TIV of $115 seems unbelievable. 

I just got credited today for a 360 drum set.  I sent the wireless drums set with pedal and a brand new 3 cymbal pack i bought to send in with it...accepted as acceptable.  I have a Wii set pending as well.   I sent it in the same condition plus the dongle.

Unless you get a third-party adapter, which sounds possible considering Gamestop has just the one page and it says "Style may vary".

If you get that exact adapter, yes.  The GS link says "style may vary", so you might end up with a third-party one.

 

However, if you have an official Nintendo USB LAN adapter, this one is the exact chipset match for it and would work in place of it:

http://www.amazon.co...duct/B00484IEJS

 

The official Nintendo one works on the Wii U and the Wii, though the one I linked above uses the same chipset, so it works.  I bought one of the above for my Wii U and just bought one for my Wii to replace my official Nintendo one.

Oh joy. I actually have that exact adapter pictured, I don't even use it, and I still have the packaging.

Too bad I missed the trade in. Win some, lose some.

Very risky, the drum dongles are clearly labeled as such and do not work with the guitars. Guitar dongles are way more expensive on ebay than the drum ones.

Whoops, I did not know there was a difference.  :wall:

 

I messed up, again.

The adapter pictured on Amazon has USB ports, all of the ones I've seen on Amazon don't.  Plus, this may be a knock-off on Amazon, according to all of the bad reviews.

Darn. You're right. The ones on ebay with the two usb ports are going to for very high prices. http://www.ebay.com/...=item25a6761b22

 

I never had a guitar hero or band hero drum set for the ps3, so I'm not familiar with these. Maybe third party sellers on amazon were just selling the wireless drum dongle without USB ports incorrectly on this listing? And then that caused all of the bad reviews? I'm just speculating here.

 

 

Edit: This seller has 1224 drum dongles available for $15 a piece http://www.ebay.com/...=item4cffb7d3f8

 

And he also has 82 of the correct guitar adapters with usb ports for sale http://www.ebay.com/...=item4d2c2fe510

...for $50+ a piece shipped from China. Son of a b.

Some options for people that locked in the RB Drum Replacement pedal at the high TIV:

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f4e8d097d

http://www.ebay.com/...380036905&rt=nc

http://www.ebay.com/...380036905&rt=nc

http://www.ebay.com/...380036905&rt=nc

http://www.ebay.com/...=item2800b84d12

http://www.ebay.com/...=item43dd6c2bfd

http://www.ebay.com/...=item2800b84d12

 

I know some of them with shipping and item price, there's not a lot of ROI, though if someone has eBay bucks they need to burn or an eBay coupon, it may make it a bit more palatable.

I had a first-party one that I was happy to replace with a third-party one that I knew would work, so that's a win for me.

 

I'd bet that we'll get some lucky regulars who have one nearby.

For anyone who cares, I can attest with first hand experience that the Kongregate coupon works with the PSP B2G2 sale. There was a $12.99 game that I was going to buy for myself regardless, so it was a no brainer to buy 3 more for Amazon fodder.

 

I was somewhat afraid the coupon might cancel itself out with the B2G2.

I guess this would be that other coupons like that one would work with future sales like B2G1.

I hate running in to the employees who don't even want to attempt it. They probably just don't want to void the transaction and start over again in the situation that the coupon does not work correctly.

 

I was suprised it worked that way considering how the Bday coupon works during B2G1 sales. I bought a $9.99 DS game along with the 4 PSP games assuming the coupon would apply to the $9.99 DS game. To my suprise it applied to one of the $14.99 PSP games instead I suppose because it was more expensive. I believe it ended up coming to $8.99, so I guess it took the $5 off the $14.99 and then applied the PUR discount to the $9.99 price.

Well, so much for the one not-expensive GH wireless dongle, as I was outbid on eBay to have it not be worth the cost for the credit at Acceptable.

another option if you are looking for GH dongles is vintage stock. i found one there for $2.99, the les paul one that sells for quite a bit. they appear to not care about their prices on accessories as ive also found cheap ps3 memory card adapters and other items under $5

I have one right by my house, though the issue with VStock is that their inventory management is shit.  I went in there looking for a PS3 Memory Card adapter and spent 20 minutes not able to find anything.   It's all tossed together on shelf pegs and it's hard to keep track of what's what.

the one near me is pretty organized, or maybe they just dont have quite as much. it is all hanging on shelf pegs but there are only about 3 rows of 3 for used playstation accessories. there doesnt seem to be much turnover either, i go in a couple times per week and probably 90% of the stuff is the same.

Lucky you to have one that is organized.  I've not been in there in a few months, so maybe mine has improved since I've been there last.   I think I'll have some to swing by there today and see if I get lucky.

Some of it is available online with CAG16.

 

Knight's Contract, Top Gun and Super Star Kartz were just order-able online.

 

Most of it wasn't available anywhere near me, including the three ones that were available online, so I just punted on those three above ones via an online order.

Thank you so much frosty. I was trying to remember the "credit movers" that traded in for around $10.86 and $11.59. With the coupon they are much more than credit movers now.
