The drum kit used by Red Hot Chilli Peppers drummer Chad Smith at Super Bowl XLVIII is up for auction on

The kit was used in the bands performance of "Give it Away" alongside Bruno Mars during the Super Bowl half-time show on Sunday - a performance which has since drawn criticism after it emerged that band members did not have their instruments plugged in.

There will be two drum kits up for auction - one adorned with NFC franchise logos and the other with AFC emblems.

Alongside the major items, Chad Smith is also offering three sets of sticks that were used during the rehearsal and performance of the band.

The drum sticks are custom made and include the Super Bowl XLVIII logo. 

At present the NFC conference kit is going for $10,250, but the AFC version is going for over $12,000.

The sticks meanwhile could be yours for just $290 (rehearsal), or $610 if you want the bona fide performance version (and you can tell the difference).

You have until 10 pm ET February 7 to get your bid in.

All proceeds will go to the Make-a-Wish foundation.
