I just got in a like new Future Retro Orb from xibalba, and the transaction couldn't have been any easier. Extremely quick and easy to deal with, absolutely no trouble at all!

Chris Winkels must have the fastest Paypal account ever. PM'd that we were 'go' for the deal and the money was here in what seemed like seconds. Thanks and enjoy the DW-8000, friend.

Bought a Yamaha A3000 from Altitude.

He conducted himself in a fair and helpful manner, the sampler arrived promptly, and it functioned as described.

I'd do business with him again.

Let me return the favour.

Bill, a.k.a rhino shipped me a refurbished DW-8000. It was sent promptly, arrived in as-described condition, and (and I must emphasize this point, because I cannot stress it highly enough) was packed absolutely brilliantly.

I've been lucky to never have had a horror story when it comes to packaging jobs. But this one is the best I've ever seen.

- A properly sized, double-walled cardboard box
- Inch and a half thick stryofoam sheets on all sides.
- a supplemental foam block around the joystick to keep it from snapping off
- heavy, heavy plastic bag wrapping around the synth
- large diameter bubble wrap to further protect its face and back
- no packing peanuts to clean up (yay!)

This chap should teach a master class in how to ship things. I recommend him heartily and look forward to buying more from his workbench in future.

I'm Christopher Winkels, and I endorse this seller!

Bought an mg-1 from Bill (Rhino) and was very satisfied. He included extra parts and it was here the day after I paid for it.

Bought an ESQ-1 from Rhino, thanks man! Would do business with you again without hesitation.
Shipped fast, and I'd like to second this comment about how it was packaged:

Sold a smartcard to rharris07 with payment almost instantly.

I didn't even have to threaten him with the Death Ray - what's with these younger members these days? Sheesh!

Anyway, he's a good guy to deal with. `
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

I just had a very bad experience with terreror. I paid a big price on the Juno 60 (about 700€) because he told me it was "just serviced and fully working".

But I got a unit with 5 broken keys (2 of them totally smashed into pieces and floating into the packaging), intermittent sound on the working keys left, no chorus, and no presets (battery of out ordrer, obviously).

The modulation panel isn't attached to the keyboard so it's unusable.

What really makes me angry is that he showed me a tape of him (his hand, actually) playing every key and working like a charm.

For the broken keys, I can imagine the shipping was wild... Why not.

But for the intermittent voices, the non working chorus and the non working preset system, he lied to me.

I'm very angry. Do not make business with terreror.
