Default Re: The type of sellers to avoid on eBay - in regards to buying drum gear...

Anyone who is selling "symbols".

The casual guy who says something like; "They look like they're in pretty good shape but I'm not sure, I'm selling them for a friend..."

Folks who list drums or cymbals as "NEW!" when you can clearly see the heads of the drums are played in, stick marks all over cymbals, excessive fingerprints & dirty surfaces, etc.

Anyone who has clearly measured the drums with the hoops on, i.e. "sizes are 17.5"x18, 13.5"x11.5, and 23.5x16".

...this was spontaneous after window-shopping on eBay, I'm sure I'll think of more later - add 'em if ya got 'em!
HAHA! Hilarious observations. I instinctively avoid buying from people like this but I'd never thought about the words and spellings.
