A new version is coming out. Even Guido Kirsch, the creator and owner of the company, doesn't have any more. I asked a few weeks ago.

You could take a look at the GSI Burn instead.

Your eyes are fine--the lister is the one trying to get the better (albeit not quite legal) positioning.

Eh, these things are built like a tank. I honestly wouldn't worry too much about it. He has all the packaging, that's a good sign.

Though not shown, he has a 100% rating as a buyer, although it has been a while since he bought anything. No records of any sales. Outside of the NIB issue, which he could have claimed (I think) 'new, out of box', I would say he is on the up and up.

Agree to build quality. However, somewhat surprised you as a manufacturer would not have an issue with this listed as new. Me? I would not have an issue bidding.

Jim, are you talking about the 'mini vent' which has been fine tuned for guitars? Or are you talking about a new Vent replacement/upgrade?

There are rumours about a rackmounted MIDI Vent coming out at some point.

That's a nice option, but for musicians not wanting a rackmounted option, how does this help them if the Vent is no longer an option to purchase? If I didn't have a Vent and wanted to purchase one, then going forward the only option for a Vent technology solution would be a rackmount. There still ought to be a Vent footpedal option that doesn't require a rackmount purchase. As Jim Alfredson mentioned in his photoshop'd XM3 mock up ".. enough with the two piece solutions of the XM1 and XM2. Those are not practical. I want a small, all-in-one module version.." this is what the Vent provided. I would not want to go to a rackmount leslie solution. There still ought to be a foot pedal solution in their product portfolio. My two cents.

Long and McQuade music lists the Vent as "in stock" at its Oshawa and Toronto stores. Might be worth checking out.

Just what I read on this board somewhere so I have no special knowledge but, There will be a new pedal (non minivent) also.

From user B3halt in another thread (Hammond Lesliepedal vs Ventilator):

"Well, I heard the Leslie pedal is for guitars from the HS Japan...

By the way, the Vent II is coming soon, and there are two types. One has a midi input, and it's like the rack mount type. The other one is like the one before."

MIDI input is a cool option. Hopefully it's flexible enough to allow different controllers for speed toggling. Myself, I wouldn't mind using the damper pedal on a non-specialized board!

These guys are the USA distributors of the vent, and I know they have them in stock, as I just got my Sk2 there last week and was trying one out. Good guys there, Mickey is the keyboard guy.

I hope they release a rack mounted version with additional features. Once that product hits, I suspect my Ventilator will be up for sale.
