New seller, no video. I can't be sure if I've already seen these photos...

I´m not so sure about that- he sent me a video of the Hang being played upon request and one can see the same room as on the pictures in the background and even the player's face.

He also did not object to a personal visit.
Here´s a link to the video. Can one of the experts comment on the tuning maybe? I find that difficult, the Hang is being played very fast, not sure if all tonefields were struck..

It´s somewhat suspicious though that the video was uploaded in June 2012 by a user from Germany while the Hang in the auction is supposed to be in Glasgow.

This is at least the second time this instrument is on ebay.
It was sold end of August 2012 from Germany. see http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180956892954
Same pictures, same video....

Just got a pm from the actual owner, he wrote that it is definitely scam. The seller used his pictures and video, Ebay has already been contacted.
