Halo on E bay (Warning: Flipping for Profit)

Postby harmonics » Mon Mar 11, 2013 1:35 pm

Just found this on EBAY.

This auction is for a BRAND NEW Halo Genesis in the highly desirable Golden Gate tuning, WITH THE NEW INPEX CENTER NOTE (one of the very few I've ever been aware of). The engraving on the back shows #571G, March 2013 production.

This instrument looks quite like the Golden Gate being played by Kyle on the Pantheon Steel website. However, I will allow you to do your due diligence.

This beautiful instrument will be shipped in it's ORIGINAL reinforced cardboard shipping box, Soft Bag with an embroidered Halo logo, ONE NEW HALO HELMET, care kit (which is a microfiber towel, desiccant bag, and miracle towel... all unused), and unworn Pantheon XL T-shirt.

It is exactly as I received it from Pantheon Steel. This is a 100% legitimate auction. Upon winning the auction, the buyer will receive my full contact information.

I am a Batch 2 customer that finally, after waiting 2 years to acquire it, received his Halo on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. However, my life circumstances have changed, so I am regrettably selling this beautiful instrument.

Payment may be made via Paypal or Certified Check (shipped upon check clearing).

MOD WARNING: this sale is opposed by the instrument's maker, Pantheon Steel. We ask you not to bid on this instrument.

Another a**hole flipper. If your circumstances have changed, then CANCEL YOUR ORDER and let Pantheon sell it to someone who deserves it.

Sale officially disapproved of by Pantheon Steel.

[About the Halo Ake Bono sold by McConners72) This instrument is being flipped.

We have explicitly requested that the seller, Matthew Conners, remove this auction at once.

The same is true of the brand-new Golden Gate being sold by Robert Sobota.

That´s so unfair, especially towards Pantheon Steel! They´re trying to keep their prices affordable while they could actually make much more money if they´d sell them for market price and some :fist: :fist: :evil: :evil: :twisted: :bang: :x flippers profit from it by reselling. I really think that PS should introduce a contract that forbids customers to sell their Halo for much more than they paid for it- at least within, let´s say, a year or so after purchase. Maybe that would put a stop to this :o :x

It's such a kick in the teeth to people like us that lie awake at night dreaming of our first sound sculpture.

I'm horiblement frustrated, this and of a the range tonality that attracts me the most.
but in addition, it has just to happen that to resell ...
I did not include two years of waiting and ultimately to sell at the time it coming.
do not do this the people, it would be like selling a new baby born (something ,inconsevable)
or whereas, you Sell to the of purchase price, résté resonable no lobbying.

Very disrespectful to Pantheon Steel for sure. They could be making so much more money off these pans if they wanted, but they don't. Its very, very frustrating for me because I want one so bad, seeing others win the lottery or however he got it so he can make some money makes me soooo mad!

here is the sellers reply to one of us

: Just another [expletive] flipper, you are. If your circumstances have changed, you should CANCEL YOUR ORDER with pantheon and let them sell it to someone who deserves it. We call you [expletive] "flippers", and you ruin the spirit of the handpan community with your greed and deception of our beloved Pantheon Steel. Why don't you just cancel the auction and send it back to Pantheon and get your money back, like a good person would do. You make me sick, and karma will come back on you for sure. FLIPPER!! Mar-11-13
A: Thank you for your correspondence. Your vulgar speech is unacceptable, though. If the spirit of the handpan community is to be socialist, then fine, I am willing to ruin it. I bought it fair and square. It's mine. I will do with it what I please

Admin edit: Removed expletives
