So all you have to do is order something via Prime, return it then repurchase it when it's relisted and marked down?
Except, they often only knock it down $10 and sometimes, inexplicably, they raise the price. I find about six to ten cymbals per year that are real bargains due to price.

Returned Bosphorus Cymbals K18CMT 18-Inch Turk Series Crash Cymbal, "Very Good" condition for $181:

In March I picked up an A18CMT for a half dollar less than that based on your deal reporting. Used it at gigs a few times so far. Thanks!

Copped it. I really loved the sound from what I heard.

I am also eyeing a used Tama Starclassic Performer. I may get both kits and use one as a jam kit or sell one if I don't like it as much as the other.

I'm glad those are 20/12/14, I already have three sets in that configuration so I wasn't really tempted to grab these. Maybe for a split second...

PDP By DW Concept Classic 3-Piece Shell Pack with 24 inch Bass Drum Natural/Walnut, 24" (PDCC2413NT) https://a.co/d/4gVV2rs

Nearly half off PDP Concept Classic 24/16/13
You have to scroll down to the warehouse deal to see it for $624.
Usually the "used" are really new, open or damaged box. Often though, as talked about here recently. If it's a multiple box set, a drum may be missing. Still worth the risk as returns are easy.

I honestly think some of their "used" gear is from people buying a drum set, only receiving one box of two and returning it without using it.

T-Bird and I both saw that our drums were new and still wrapped in tissue/bubble wrap.

WARNING!!! There is an Istanbul Mehmet Jazz Legend Dark hi hat in Amazon Warehouse. It has been bought and returned a half dozen times because when you click on the item and read the reviews they show a pair of hi hats. But in an answer to a question on 4/8/22 one person who bought and returned it stated that it was just the bottom hi hat cymbal.

I called Amazon to confirm this item could be returned by a Prime member and they said yes. I also noticed that Amazon sells the same hi hats new with the same "ASIN" number so I took the chance to buy this item, assuming it's both the top and bottom cymbal and not just 1 of them. The Amazon rep was as clueless as they all are, took 1/2 hour to explain my concerns and repeat the ASIN number several times after which he tried to give me the "Seller's" phone number to call --- they're in Turkey and have no idea what Amazon is selling from their warehouse. Whew- what a waste of time. But at $140 (over 50% off retail) for a possible hi hat pair that I had interest in, it was worth the minor effort to buy them. Will post back after receipt if they sent both hats or just 1! ( that 1 cymbal will be sent back immediately of course).

Good luck. A reviewer stated that he received only one cymbal and returned it. This has been bought and returned 4 or 5 times; assuming of course that it is the same item rather than an unlikely coincidence.
