Will start learning more about SDC, eventually I'll find a nice pair of those.
What's your price range? I can make recommendations from quite affordable to oh yeah that's gonna hurt.
Your recommendations would be most welcome!!! 2-3 different ones from low to medium price please, and thank you! :- D
At the same time, I go about things differently than most people.
It seems fair to say I am a scavenger. I am very averse to stolen goods so I like to go to thrift stores because it seems doubtful that criminals would give their loot to Starvation Army so I am comfortable purchasing there.
That said, I shop craigslist too and have found amazing deals from people who were obviously totally on the up and up. Just missed an $80 mid-90's Guild Jumbo on there, being sold by a rich person out on the cliffs - Chuckanut Drive (you have to be rich to live there). I guess they didn't want it anymore...
I got both of my CAD mics (D82 ribbon and E100 (2) condenser) for a straight across trade - a beautiful Turkish baglama saz I found at Value Village for $40. By the time you add in bridges and shipping, I had close to $80 in it. So I got those mics for $40 each, more or less.
2 years ago I bought an ancient flamed koa ukulele at Goodwill for $5. It needed some work. I listed it as-is and accepted an offer - by the time fees were paid etc. I cleared $500.
So if I bought something with that $500 (bills, ugh!) you could say I paid $500 for it but an argument could also be made that I paid $5 for it, no?
I'm gigging a $40 Roland Cube 40gx -Value Village score.
I bought a Gurian guitar at Starvation Army in Fresno for $65 years ago and got $1,300 for it as-is.
I could go on and on. The AT mic I listed above was in the tools at Goodwill for $3.50.
Seek and ye shall find... Cheers, Kuru
