Red Hot Chili Peppers: Super Bowl drum set being auctioned for charity

The custom Pearl drum set to be used by Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers during the Super Bowl halftime show on February 2 is now available for bidding as part of an NFL auction for charity.

Proceeds from the set will benefit Make-A-Wish America, as the Chili Peppers join Bruno Mars at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. for the halftime event.

In addition, three pairs of autographed drum sticks made by Vater and used by Chad will be available on NFL Auction.

Check out Chad’s gear here.

Many items are a part of the auction, including signed jerseys, helmets, footballs and photos by current and former players and coaches.

The Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched musical event of the year. More than 110.5 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year's show.

The day before Sunday’s event, the Chili Peppers will headline WFAN Sports Radio's Big Hello To Brooklyn at New York’s Barclays Center.
