I can scarcely believe what just happened

Post by Voltron »

Saw a listing on Facebook that looked interesting. Price was all wrong. Thought maybe he missed a zero off the end? Sent a message, yep that’s the price. Jumped on it straight away.

2 x rockit 15” 200w speakers

2 x laney cx12s - 200w

Behringer pmp2000 amp - 800w

Laney cd300 amp - 300w

6 x shure sm57s

Plus a few random bits and pieces. $400. Deal of the century?

I know what you’re thinking, but it was a lovely retired bloke, had a good yarn, told me about his bands over the years and a little history on each item. Moving out of Auckland and doesn’t want to lug it all with him, just keen to move it on. If there’s a scam here it’s the best one I’ve ever heard of!

Nice! Facebook marketplace has a bunch of issues but there's always deals to be found if you're lucky

Absolutely, scored an ac30 from a bloke down in Hamilton a couple of years ago off Facebook. Wasn’t that you?

Yep, and don’t they just say everything? This particular look says something like “so you just bought a PA system that you don’t need and somehow you’re excited about the microphones? Oh they use them in studios? Ok. You’re out of your damn mind but in an acceptably eccentric way I suppose. Have fun with your microphones you dork.”

Awesome, that should scratch your itch for a little while. Hey, you could invest the money you saved into some music gear!

Try it when a new Harley turns up in the garage - "when did this come?" at lunch time. "when did you buy it" I told you that I was the only who bid on it.

Nice work. Last epic deal I had I slipped the seller a few extra so I could sleep at night, and they could buy a nice bottle of whiskey.
