Electribe Sales:

I have now sold both my Korg Electribes (EA-1 and ER-1).  I got £125 for each of them, and I have to say that it was MUCH easier to sell the ER-1 (drum machine).

Here’s a selling tip:  include the spec from the Korg website in the listing. I was on the second relist for the EA-1 when I added this, and it sold for the full amount an hour later.

Mattel Synsonics:

My “Itchy trigger finger” went off again.. this time I bought a “broken” Mattel Synsonics Drum machine.

I’ve always liked these things, but as I remember, the last one I had was very noisy and I didn’t have any way to shut it up at the time.. Pretty sure I sold mine to Shaun, at dubsounds.com, who was compiling a huge collection of drum machines, for sample pack creation.

Anyway, that was then and this is now.  The machine would have been delivered on Easter Saturday, IF I’d been in at the time. Nobody else could be bothered to answer the door, so now I have to wait until Wednesday, which is the only late opening for the sorting office.

The one I just bought is rough and non-working, so we’ll see how I get on with that,

No Work Done:

I’ve done absolutely NOTHING on ANY of my projects, (DR-55 / SR-99 / Korg Delta / EK-2). I really MUST get a grip. There are other machines in storage as well.. (M500, SH1000, CZ3000, Big Roland Thing).. the big Roland thing is getting in my way.
