Probably being sold by someone who thinks all drums are worth a fortune. They looked on ebay or CL and thought they had something comparable to a nice Supraphonic or Black Beauty!

"Well, it's shiny. Maybe I can get over $400 for it."

There are some real idiots out there!

For some reason or other CL in the bay area always has bargains and variety.

Occasionally you get a wing nut asking for the sun and the moon for a mid low priced piece of drum gear(retail),but for the most part prices are pretty reasonable.

This guy has had this 4 sale for over a year.
Last month it was $504 ,now it's $619 bucks.

I had a cheap Yamaha steel snare drum that sounded absolutely incredible.

I'm in sacramento, so I do see bay area CL listings, and the ad has been on there forever. I didn't know that it went up in price.

yeah, I just saw that, but it's the nicer newer version with a center bead, and it's now down to 50 bucks.

Mental instability on full display here.

It'll sit on CL for a good month with no hits & they'll wonder why.
Then as they're forced to drop the price, they'll finally get the message of how their hustle didn't work.

Then once the price is what it should be for an 8 lug steel and they've sold it, they'll have learned something.

Don't forget it did have a soft and somewhat retractable handle which will lay flush. A selling point if ever there was one. So many of the eBay ones don't have that remarkable feature.

It also comes in handy when your car is so full, that the only space available is the spare tire well. It's also permanently detachable, probably at the worst possible moment.

He just bumped the price up inside the ad again to $275.

So let me get this right,the drum has been sitting on CL for 3 months and the strategy is to raise the price in order to facilitate the sale.

I find pricing on Bay Area craigslist to be absurd for the most part. On the rare occasion that a good deal does pop up, it disappears fast.

Sounds like the seller is hoping those that saw it before have moved on and that the new price will appeal to new lookers. A big fail in my opinion. I saw my Renown at 900.00 when I was looking, two weeks later it was 700.00 and I jumped. I need nothing and still go look every day.
