Re: The type of sellers to avoid on eBay - in regards to buying drum gear...
I'd like to add another:
Sellers who put the drums out on a bare sidewalk, lawn, a patch of dirt, or anywhere else that seems unacceptable for a drum kit to be placed - even if it's just for taking the photos for the listing.
I know, I know...that's nit-picking but I *am* picky. I want to know that what I'm getting won't be all scraped up from being moved around on the pavement or some other sort of damage. It strikes me as careless and lazy.
