I wasn't sure which area of the forum to post this in. Since this part deals with online purchasing I guess I would try here. Recently someone mentioned to me the site TradeTang.com. It was in reference to shopping for in-expensive gifts. I checked out the site and it appears to be a "China Wholesale" site. Surprisingly it looks like they have used instruments advertised on there. Has anyone ever bought anything or know much about the site?

It's a Chinese copy of a MkVI. The asking price is around $400-500. Of course, they have a plethora of other Chinese Makes and Models. Caveat Emptor!!!

What??? No white gloves???...move along. . .nothing to see here
OK, ok ... I know that the quality of lots of what is on there is not that great. I was half hoping someone would have bought something maybe from there and could comment on an experience they had. Maybe not worth the time.
