Just a heads up regarding those really cheap Roadrunner cymbal bags.
If you ordered more than one, but they only shipped one, check your credit card or paypal balance.
I ordered 2, but got a note that they only shipped one. When I went to my paypal activity, it shows that only $16 was deducted. BUT, since I keep a ledger with my paypal balance, I noticed that my paypal balance was short $16.
Turns out Guitar center kept the other $16 on hold as they left the order for the other cymbal bag open. Paypal's policy is to wait 30 days before the money would be available again unless I got Guitar Center to cancel the order.
SO...if you ordered more than one, but only got one, check your credit card or paypal and make sure to have GC cancel the order so you won't have to wait a long time for your money back.
Hope this made sense...

I did order 2 bags. GC did ship one separately, then shipped the second bag a week later. They charged my PP account one bag at a time.

It's strange...if you look at my PayPal activity it just shows the account charged once. The second wasn't charged to my account, but that amount was "held" and not available to me. I never would have caught it had I not kept my own PayPal ledger.

Ok, the deal was too good to pass up. Ordered it and had it shipped to the store I teach at. Not sure if I'll keep it, resell it or use it in the teaching studio or what, but that deal was too good to pass up.
As with past Amazon deals, sometimes the item is a return from a damaged shipment or missing a box. We'll see...
