  • Missed it by that much!

    Well I guess its been a dream of mine for a while now to own a La Cimbali Junior.

    There was quite a nice Junior D on the Bay of Evil this week. Great condition, 2 years old, good starting price etc.

    I was the high bidder for the last several days. With 30 secs to go I placed a safety bid somewhat higher than I expected it go. At 20 seconds someone made a serious effort but I was still in the lead. At 10 seconds a new bidder came on and I lost the lead. With seconds to go I could only watch helplessly as Junior slipped away from me.

    Its probably not a new story to anyone here but Im feeling the disappointment real bad right now. In retrospect I could have gone $200 higher and maybe got it.

    I only ever use a snipe program...

    Set to 3sec post end time and establish what I want to pay and then walk away...

    I never watch or make an early bid.. It shows ya hand...

    If I get it.. Great... If I get out bid, then some one had deeper pockets and I go and have another coffee :-)

      I think the main thing in real auctions or on evil bay is to set yourself a hard limit, and bid up to that point by whichever means you wish (I too use a sniper program on occasion).
      If someone outbids you, you have not lost - they have paid too much.

            There are a couple... But one is a re badged FREE system and then they sell it.. I do not use that one..

            I use the free one and make the odd donation..

            Was once a bid watcher / not a sniper.. That came later..

            PM if you need more info.

                          No, sorry, I play a Fender Telecaster guitar and Danny Gatton, a famous player was called the Telemaster- just in honour of him
