  • Yamaha 520 kit

    If this is in the wrong area, I apologize, I'm not selling this kit, so I didn't think classifieds made sense. Anyway I just came across this listing and thought I'd notify the forum. Seems like a crazy deal if it's legit.

    You know what they say about things that are too good to be true.

    I saw a listing on Craigslist for a DTXpress 4 module with DTXtreem3 pads for $350. Yeah... The cymbals alone are worth $350 used.
    I think my work is done here.

      Yeah that is for dirt if it is legit, be careful and proceed with caution I would only do cash snd carry with this deal and bring somebody with you to grab it making sure there is nothing shady

        Sometimes these deals are actual deals, but the reasons behind them are nefarious. I looked at the email on this ad and it has the word "doe" in it, implying "female". Don't know of any male drummers that would have that in there, it makes me think his wife or girlfriend is selling his sh&t right out from under him. Just proffering one of the many examples of why it could be a bargain!

          Definitely fake. If you search for the email address listed in the ad, they're selling random stuff on Craigslist in random cities. The DTX-520 in Seattle, a KitchenAid mixer in Nashville, a stove in Philly, a Kegerator in Tampa. When in doubt, try uploading one of the images in the ad to Google image search. This one traces back to this ad selling the DTX-520 for $600 in North Carolina: http://www.talkbass.com/threads/fs-y...m-set.1069256/

              Seemed too good to be true! Sketchy at best!
