Forgive me here Wayne...

... but why the quotes on my post? I do believe you may have misinterpreted what I wrote: Simply... this thread shall remain. I see NO PROBLEM with a thread that openly acknowledges transactions between VDF members that have gone smoothly with both parties completely, and happily, satisified. It was drumhack that offered his opinion which stated he didn't like such a thread/topic... and that is an opinion he is completely entitled to. That said, again... the thread shall remain! I'm not quite sure exactly what you are referencing in your post.. especially with quoting mine. But... no harm no foul!

Tommy, im a hack on a computer and hit the wrong button. Sorry, i was not quoting you in any way and if i was bright enough on these things, i would have corrected it..Very sorry. You run a tight ship here and it impresses me how fair you are with all of us. Nothing but positive vibes from me brother.

Vintage;.I,d forgotten him, although i never did get sucked into his lair. Interestingly though, he is only ONE that comes to mind so it proves the mods are on top of these pin heads.

You sure are right about Rene, Bob! He's the kind of guy who runs a business with honesty and respect for the buyer. When I buy from Rene (King Street Percussion), he doesn't even quote me a price anymore! Basically, it's "Give me what you think is fair, Brian. I know I can trust you." Neither one of us has ever been disapointed.

Wayne!...

Ah... 'twas just a wrong entry within the reply box! Now it makes sense to me! THANKS for clarifying Wayne! As I had stated earlier, and it still applies: No harm... no foul!

Tommy,
I think posting this thread is indeed a good thing. As to this forum becoming an eBay without the fees, I respectfully disagree. I have done almost no buying or selling on this site but I have watched some of these transactions. What is apparent to me is this:

If one is selling on C/L or eBay, you are simply moving a piece of gear or providing a service with the hope of simply generating some revenue whether it is a source of income or the by-product of clearing out some much needed space. There is nothing wrong with that.

The transactions here are rather different. In most cases the seller hopes to make a profit while the buyer hopes to gain a needed item. What is special here is that those involved in commerce seem to get involved with each other with the mutual interest and love for drums and cymbals. Many times forum members go out of their way to make transactions happen: sometimes with no real financial gain. Certainly there is nothing wrong with profit, but it appears to me that many of the transactions occurring here are more akin to hanging out at the locally owned drum shop with people working together to get something that is needed. That is a very different experience than an online auction or using the buy it now feature.

That said, the one purchase I have made here requires a big + 1 for Billnvick.

Hello, tnsquint!
I agree with you completely! MOST of my purchases here on VDF have been very favourable. I have bought items but, have never sold a thing. I have given away several rims, two or three cymbals and even a logo I had made up for a Supreme bass drum head. That's fine. If I can spare an item for a fellow mwmber, I do it with pleasure! It's nothing to do with money. It's all about the love of our hobby!!!
Brian
