Padkontrol for sale- $8000?????

Post by pulsoc » Fri May 15, 2009 1:58 pm

Holy crap, I emailed the guy asking if he really meant to sell for $8K and he responded
"Yeah, it's not a mistake. If someone's good enough they can easily make a profit selling the beats they make off this baby."

i was going to call him a retard for selling it for that much... but i guess the person who purchases it for that amount would qualify more as the retard. LOL

The funny thing about that is the "Other Things You May Like" section at the bottom of his listing which shows 3 different padKontrol listing all for under $150. What a moron.

"You mean I to tell me I can make a profit off of beats I make with your padKontrol, but not make a profit off of the beats I make on the cheap ones? Hot damn!"

Next thing you know he'll be telling people how great the sound quality is on his MIDI controller.

I e-mailed him as well asking if he was just trying to take advantage of someone by selling it for $8400 more than it's worth.

His reply... "Have you heard of Kanye West? His beats sell for well over $8400.
This thing can potentially make someone a millionaire if they are
creative enough!"

Is there anyway of finding out who he is? I hope he gets his ass handed to him. Isn't what he's doing against ebay's rules at all. Or do they also allow people to get taken advantage of if those people are stupid enough?

Q: Would you be willing to go down to 7500$?

A: It costs $2.00 to edit the listing so I am going to see if there are any bids on it first. If not, I might be able to go down a little... Keep in touch mate!

I hope that guy isn't a forum user here. I've emailed customer service at ebay to remove that item and penalize that guy for being an ass that really just wants to take advantage of someone. Un-fucking-believable the nerve of some people.

Question: Wondering, does this make any sound? Does it come with beats? Does it spit fyre in the direction of an MC? Does it walk? Does it give you back rubs? Will it increase YOUR intelligence?

might also be worth asking him (the seller) if raggedy ann has cotton tits, and how long it would take to defrost a 16lb (7kg) turkey......

He's not breaking any rules though... I mean, what about the slices of toast with images of jesus and the virgin mary burned into them that sold for ungodly sums?

The way I see it, eBay allows you as the seller to set your price. They'll offer suggestions on what it's worth by looking at other auctions for the same thing, and the seller can do that on their own as well. But if you choose to ignore that and list it for a crazy amount of money, you're just making your pool of potential buyers that much smaller.

Now, if he had something misleading on there about his particular padKontrol being worth $8000 and was bullshitting about it - that's when eBay should get involved.

If someone is stupid enough to pay $8k for it, let them. If it doesn't sell (I cannot imagine a scenario where it would sell), it will cost the guy money to keep posting it.
