    Seems like a fair price for a used drum set. What is so unbelievable?

    looks like a possible scam. especially when he says that they sell for $2500 UK new and he's selling them for $200 UK. plus he says that not only is he not sure of the make, but he didn't even post a picture of the actual drumset, just another set of the same color but different make.

    Yeah, I did. I guess the only thing that sounds crazy is the $2500 part.

  5. Seems pretty darn crazy to me - how are you supposed to evaluate a product on auction if there is no indication of make or model,and the picture shown isn't of the product... and not even a stock picture of a similar model, simply one with a similar colour?

    Approximate equivalents:

    -----------------

    Bass guitar which i have owned for around 3 years now hardly been used, not too sure of the make i believe it is Fender but i am not certain. This kit cost me £2500 new so grab yourself a bargain, it consists of body, neck, 4 strings, pickups, bridge and tuners. All in great condition so grab yourself a bargain, The bass body is a dark red in color and sounds amazing, also there is a hard case with the bass which cost £60 new. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.

    THE PICTURE BELOW IS NOT THE ACTUAL BASS I AM SELLING ITS JUST TO SHOW THE COLOUR OF THE BASS, AND YES YOU GET STRINGS, STRAP ETC WITH THE KIT.

    -----------------

    Car which i have owned for around 3 years now hardly been used, not too sure of the make i believe it is Ford but i am not certain. This car cost me £15,000 new so grab yourself a bargain, it consists of car, tyres, engine, stereo and interior accessories. All in great condition so grab yourself a bargain, The car body is a dark red in color and drives very well, also the car has been fitted new wheels which cost £60 each new. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.

  7. Ok, just to stick up for this guy, altho it seems like a scam to me too, maybe he meant £250? because thats about bang on what those kits cost?

    Oh, and its £'s not $'s over here :p

    I've seen people gouge for shipping, but to straight up add $1000 to the final auction price... that's a new one.
