Phew! talk about lucky! I nearly got caught up in that shill bid nonsense last night although it was kind of interesting at the same time.
I’m waiting for an email to offer me the Roland Super JV-1080 at my bid price as the other bidder has “pulled out”, which will be the point that I tell them they can shove their synth, as I bought a Roland XV-3080 instead.
Wait a minute, isn’t that about twice the price? with a better sound set and editing capabilities? Isn’t that the one used by Neil Peart in conjuction with his TD-20, the same model I have? Why yes! except this one was bought new from the shop for an absolute steal. They must have had one in the back of a cupboard or something. The second hand one listed on Ebay at the moment has a BIN of £319 plus p&p, £335 in total.
This why I nearly fell over when one came up for over a hundred quid less including postage, on the top bar of Google, you know the crap bit trying to sell you stuff that you…….
The shop is BEM Music, and if you’re quick there’s a Roland VP9000 Variphrase Processor at a ridiculous price.
The gods smile upon the righteous, and the rest of us do ok from time to time.
