Things to Do When Buying a Hang Drum The hang pan appeared in 2000, its unique appeal and novelty has led to an increased notoriety, and this has inspired other people to try their versions of similar drums. Two people created the real hang drum and thus its supply was limited and this led to a rapid increase in the availability of second-hand market hang drums on online selling sites and the price increased dramatically to about a thousand American dollars for hang pans. An incredible fact to state is that this demand also attracted copycats and the creators of fake drums that wanted to cash in on the high interest generated by the drums due to the sound that they created. A surprising fact to note is that this has made it harder to get a real hang drum but with the guidance of a few tips, the buyer can get a genuine product and not are scammed in the process. The first thing to ask from a buyer is a short description of the hang drum because most hang drums are very passionate about their instruments and they are well versed in them and in most cases they will give a long and technical description and quite a lengthy back story. If the narrative is missing such key components, it is likely to be a fake though at times stories can be forged from the internet or other people but all the same, it is an important thing to start. An incredible fact to state is that the story has to accompany the name of the hand pan and if the hand drum has no description, story about its owner or any history is likely to be a fake listing. Another thing to look into is the quality of video because a video is not always genuine or that the person selling has made a habit of using other people’s videos to pass off their sale as genuine and thus the buyer needs to check the video for signs on inconsistency such as having a lot of similar titles. The shipping and pricing of a hang drum around the world is not an easy process if the person wants to ensure that the drum arrives in a good condition and a good seller usually has a bit of information on shipping and an idea on costs and if the seller does not mention shipping then this is a glaring gap and in most cases the seller is likely to be a fake. The other thing to look into is the payment method and the seller must avoid paying with wire transfers and instead use online payment companies that buyer protect the person from being scammed.Why not learn more about Instruments?
