what's the deal with people selling unquoted non documented or tested teles for 200 bucks for 2 pairs, when I paid 270 bucks for a pair on tubemuseumusa, which was even on sale.--and then there were also other legit ones for 200 a pair, ---and nobody seem to indicate that there should be any standard that different make or kind or date or condition dictate the price of them...i mean if people have never bought tons of telefunkens before how are they supposed to know which ones are good? Sure ebay is supposed to be a place where you get stuff for cheap cus you know about stuff, but it's even worse than buying stuff on the street in a way because the pictures and the descriptions can all be faked--i mean obviously there is reputation on the line but with almost everyone having 99% or higher rating it just seem too good to be true that I won't get screwed one day buying from someone--is every seller on ebay with like a lot of stars lots of sales good rating just going to be honest traders? what about those with just a couple hundred stars and only a couple stuff on sale or a couple sales history tracable...
I can't speak to the rest but tubemuseumusa has always asked for a premium price on tubes...usually 25-30% above what the average asking prices are. I don't know what the premium gets you other than...maybe...peace of mind.
*Edit* I see your point was more toward the fact that people are selling tubes without offering any reasonably good information on them. Unfortunately, it happens all the time and it really is a crap shoot.
