The last three purchases I made were all "defective." First a guy here sells me an amp. I get it home and it sounds ill. He tells me sheepishly "I heard [the sick sounds] you're describing before." Why he tell me after I've gone through lots of effort to get the amp I don't know. He takes the amp back but the experience costs me about $40. I buy a Fulltone Clyde on ebay. Comes right away. Looks great. But I plug it in and it squeals as it wahs. I record it and offer to email it to the seller. He doesn't seem to want it and instead asks repeatedly if I'm plugging it in right. He sends me a prepaid return label but then emails me that the address is wrong. Still waiting to fix this. I buy a delay pedal from a well known etailer who matches the price of another etailer. Pedal arrives and won't get out of loop mode. TGPer comes to my aid to troubleshoot and concludes I have a dud. Was told two days ago that I'd be receiving a return label but it still hasn't arrived. None is particularly egregious but this is 3 for 3 in seven days' time. In the last 10 years of lots of purchases and sales I'm not sure I've had 3 "bad" purchases in total. Is it bad luck or perhaps are people trying to move stuff hoping that the deals go through? Anybody else running into a spate of "bad luck"?
