so what have you outgrown?

Just thinking, after looking around, how many things that we each must own that we no longer use or think about, but that someone else on the forum might want. What musical devices have -you- outgrown, that you would not mind selling, trading, or giving to forumites that might need them, or things that are more appropriate for beginners and you will never use again? Flea market, anyone????

I kinda' did a little "spring cleaning" in my studio last fall. :)

And then I sold that bunch of odds-n-ends on eBay...raised enough cash to turn around buy my Sebatron 4000e 4-channel tube preamp. :thu:

 

I still have some stuff that I haven't been using much...though I'm not quite ready to part with...but I may do some more "spring cleaning this spring! :D

se, that is it.. I mean, I was cleaning out the studio before I moved last year, and I threw away tons of stuff. Boxes of pickup rings, switches, pots, screws.... cables, other odd accessories.... I mean, I found 5 string winders. I don't USE string winders!!!! I don't remember ever buying them, so ..... empty effects boxes that I had stollen parts from, ... adapters, .....

 

I just gave away an RP-200. I threw that Zoom 505 away last year. stuff is just everywhere.

I just recently gave away a bunch of stuff. I don't ever throw anything away if somebody somewhere can use it. I gave away an old metronome, two old chromatic tuners, a box of Fender Bullet .009's (10 sets) because I use .10's on my electrics, and some other odds and ends like method books I used when I was teaching, etc.

Unfortunately, it would cost more to sent it to you than they cost!

"So what have you outgrown?"

 

Oh, maybe an old (ailing) Rockman, but that's about it, gear-wise... at least, as far as gear I still have floating around that I'll probably never have any real interest in using again...

I`ve been thinking about selling my ART SGX-2000 with the software upgrade chip and X-15 floor pedal but it would have to wait till summer, it`s back stateside. I wouldn`t mind keeping it too but there`s two pieces of gear that I really want/need, so more financial fuel is in order.

 

There`s my pedal driver, got that one with me. I forget how many outlets, four or six. There`s my acoustic, handmade in Phillipines. It suffered some damage from climate change but is still playable, the action is high on the high frets but string tention is very easy, intonation is still in. Could let that one go really cheap.

Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

See, now you have a trove of things that you could probably pass on to beginner or other forum members, even for reasonable ducats.

 

On a seperate note, I gave a 609 to my brother after trying and failing to be happy with it.

That's funny, but I can remember saving my 28s and 29s when I had 'ballooned' to a 30, thinking that I would get into them again. Yeah, maybe one leg. I was a 34 forever, then I was injured and had multiple knee surguries, shot up to a 38. Back at a reasonable (for my height) 36, but I'm still longing for those days with the waist at 34....

:eek:

Really... You don't like the Agile?

 

I'd love to check that out. Won't be in Chicago again until mid-summer, though. :(
