    Greetings to all of you!!! My name is... Maybe you know me, I'm the guy who's always looking for a deal that I can't possibly afford. Does this sound familiar? Of course we've all found that "once in a lifetime deal", the one that sounds too good to be, but really is true! As a matter of fact, if you're like me you find those deals quite often, but only when you're dead broke. If you're like me, when you find one of those deals you immediately begin looking around to see what you have that you "don't need anymore", to sell and get the money. If you're like me, you can usually find something "lying around" and can convince yourself you can "live without it". If you're like me, no matter what it is you decide to sell, the threat of missing out on that "deal of a lifetime" creates a dire sense of urgency--you gotta move quickly. If you're like me and you find yourself in that position, whatever you decide to sell has to sell immediately, so you'll gladly take a "little less than it's worth". Actually, lets be honest--a whole lot less! If you're like me, you'll get the deal put together and feel a great sense of accomplishment. Then you'll happen to see that same item you worked so hard to get on e**y, in better condition than the one you bought--a lot cheaper. You are still, even at that point, satisfied with your purchase. It's not until you see the same item you just sold...selling somewhere else...for twice what you "let it go for". "Buy_high_sell_low", my name is...and I'm a gearaholic! Maybe you're not like me, I pray for your sake you're not. Maybe you're the guy (or girl) who's looking for "that deal of a lifetime" because you've saved and saved for that moment. If you're that person, you probably need to hang around me--or those others like me. Nice to meet you--oh, and by the way, you aint got anything you're wantin to sell do ya?

    Definately not spam!!! Please excuse me if I offended anyone, I tend to get carried away sometimes. Came here to read what folks had to say about a certain console--left here convnced I had to have it--called my wife at work and promised I'd sell everything I've been hoarding so she'd let me buy it. This will actually be the first "brand new" piece of gear I've bought in a long while! As far as the PAR cans...Have you heard about these newfangled LED lights that you program with computer software? I got tired of seeing the steam coming of the bald spot on my partners head. He owns the video gear, crane and all, I made him buy the lights--all I do is the multitracking! No spam intended, just a comedic view of the unavoidable truth--which is, if any of us ever have every piece of gear we could ever want...They'll just build more! God bless us all! Thanks fer yer patience!

    Fair Enough, I just saw all the strangebold text and thought it looked like a copy paste message

    What a way to welcome a new member... :doh:

    Anyways, [USER]apostlerock[/USER], welcome to CB. You'll find a wealth of information by using the search feature and checking out the wiki, both of which are located on the toolbar at the top of the page. Other than that, post questions, answers, etc, and know that the only stupid question is the one that has been asked five times already...

    Thank you neighbor. Like I said, I lean towards the emphatic side. There will be plenty of times I actually have valuable information to offer. After this new console arrives I will be able to offer my opinion. The old Studiomaster has served me well I just need more tracks. By the way, if anyone is looking for a vintage Studiomaster...
