Re: How far out of your way have you gone to get a synth?

24 hour round trip from phila to chicago for a CS80 through a blizzard.... Met a total stranger in a hotel parking lot, unloaded the beast in an anvil case, slept for 4 hours in the hotel and went home. That's amazing, what an effort! I agree with you on shipping as well. Whenever I think about it,...

Re: How far out of your way have you gone to get a synth?

Not only does that not sound like a price (or synth) worth going out of your way for, surely shipping would have been less than the price of gas (or a train ticket)? Anyways, I drove 10 hours (there + back) from Chicago to Cleveland for a CS-60 that was pickup only... Worth it in the end, but halfw...

Re: Roland D-50 power cable

It's OK, after asking some other people I tried it out and it worked fine. Guess I just didn't want to break it before I had even turned it on.

Roland D-50 power cable

OK, first things first, I am both massively paranoid and terrible with electronics. Just bought a D-50, and the guy who sold it gave me a cable which supplies 250V and 10A, while the D-50 says it takes 240V, 50/60Hz and 22W. Will I ruin the D-50 if I use the cable, and if I can't use it where can I ...
