Thinking of buying a new pedal (probably the Digitech DF-7 and possibly something else) from an overseas Ebay store because if I buy here in Australia it would cost almost double the amount. Feedback is 99.9% positive.

Opinions?

I've had continual bad luck with eBay (see my I. Hate. Ebay. thread), but I know some people that have absolutely no trouble with it.

If the seller has that high positive feedback, they're probably safe. The seller I had trouble with was more than reasonable about sending the amp back/trying to get it fixed. I won't buy from eBay again, but I'm not pissed at the seller.

I've bought a handful of pedals on eBay. I'll buy another as soon as I decide what I want. If it's a store, they're dependent on positive feedback. I wouldn't hesitate.

I would never buy something from there...Idk why. Just not my thing. I have to play whatever Im buying first.

But anyways, its 50/50 from what Ive heard. I know A LOT of people that have gotten ripped off like crazy (I work at a music shop...I hear eBay horror stories everyday) and I know of a lot of people who are very pleased with it.

My dad bought a 24' sailboat off eBay...so...lol

I've bought 2 amps and 2 guitars over ebay...and I've also sold several guitars and amps.

Its totally safe. People live and die by feedback. They aren't going to risk their ebay career to screw one person over a couple 100 bucks. In the long run they make much more money staying honest and keeping positive feedback.

And if they do screw you...contact ebay...they'll track them down and take legal action.

Sure, try the pedal out locally, but then get the best deal you can from wherever.

He was asking about eBay reliability, not what pedal to purchase. And don't always recommend those; some people like individual pedals.

Ebay is normally quite reliable.
The only time we had a problem was when we were buying a nice electro acoustic from there, the bastard took our money and kept the guitar. We got the money back, but i wanted the guitar.
but we have bought pedals off of there and they have been fine.

Ebay is fine, just don't get the digitech, that's the real problem
I like straberry pie

don't you?
