    That's not the seller being sneaky, that's your state enrolling in the new sales tax program. The seller will likely not even see the tax money... eBay scoffs it up... and who knows what happens to it... it will likely be squandered by your state, if it ever gets that far.

    I was not blaming seller at All I blamed my state for a 8% tax rate ridiculous to live here in NY State

    Besides I’m not complaining at all about the Snare cost just the taxes.. I got $1247 snare that was brand new just displayed in store on shelf for only $850 unheard of even my Three Pearl endorsed friends couldn’t believe that!

    nice score.

    AFAIC, my endless wait for one is still not over.

    i'm looking for the 14X5.5 version to go along my wood ref. those 2 are the best snare drum ever made in their respective class.....

    while i've never understand why the ''''brass''' version reached that sky high price.

    i could get the stainless version for what, 500$ ,but of course it's not the one i want........lets say i left one past my noze for 350$,but left it go because it was the 14X6.5 version 5 years ago!!! i'm still kicking my own nuts for it lol. could have resold it for a great profit margin to fund the 14X5.5 i so want.
