Have you checked with Customs? It may be held up there. The company I work for ships globally, and when The US Postal Service is used, I tell customers that it can take 2 to 8 weeks to arrive. Also, because of the holiday season, USPS is very hit or miss.

i bought a icebell from 247drumstore off ebay back in August and it took FOREVER to get here. I won't ever bid on any of thier items again, didn't reply to emails and I waited over a month for the cymbal after payment. Just my experience...

Sure fire way to make him respond. File a PayPal complaint. If he doesn't respond, you get your money back so you can buy from someone who cares.
