The ad does not say PANArt -- but says Hang.
But he says PANArt in the video and video comment.
Looks like a Bali Steel.

I can't believe how people dare to post stuff like this.

I love being part of this community, because when people like this guy try to scam others, community always try to take down auctions or videos with false information as fast as they can.

Thanks for helping!!

I've never seen a Hang in person, but it certainly doesn't look or sound like one to me either. The sale is still up and there's a bid for 5,900.

99.9% sure that it's a Bali Steel, especially after listening to the video.

How did they get a Panart logo inside a Bali Steel? Either a fake logo printed up a it's doctored. I have never seen anybody attempt this before. :shock:

He also changed the video.

This is beyond scamming!!! :evil:

The video has been made private - on the OTHER hand(pan), I found it by using the URL given in the ad, and prefacing the URL with "https://"

Thus;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kX3nVfeyuE

I'd also watched the video earlier today.

The pan sounds absolutely terrible to me - not in tune. It has a thud, thud effect. Not a currently-well-tuned Bali Steel, if you ask me. (Might be a de-tuned Bali Steel.) :cry:
