Is it? I emailed the person but it bounced back and said the listing was invalid or the person didn't want anonymous forwarding.

i'm similarly ditching my Emulator II, it's just too inefficient for the way i want to work. i only wish Kontakt was an actual sampler rather than a sample player... :cry:

I am looking for an Emulator 2 and noticed that you were selling one shortly. Please let me know if it is available and in working condition. CBR 206-371-1020 or by email at: bruce.cfi@comcast.net

Hope to hear from you,

Bruce

It's been my experience that Craiglisters want to sell locally. It's just so much easier. And most of the people selling things on there are not online commerce or even synth experts. That's why they're such a deal. That said, I did manage to coax a Proteus 2000 w/Techno Construction card out of Toronto for $200 an EX5R from Calgary for $200 and a JX10 w/PG800 and 4 M64C cards out of Nashville for $500. Depending on where they are sometimes they just get no bites.

But 99.9 times out of 100 the answer to inquiries is no as Craiglist actually warns people not to deal out of town. But I still make them. Almost had a syncussion for $500 but the guy ended up selling it in town after all.

Excuse the cross-post, but I shoulda put it here to begin with: http://www.vintagesynth.com/forum/viewt ... &sk=t&sd=a

Seriously: Purchased in 1980, and - Still. In. The. Damn box. Lady had bought it, originally, to play jazz keys (?!) and when learning that it wasn't especially jazzy, sealed it back up and put it in the basement. This is nature's way of balancing out that MG1 I paid way too much for.

I once bought an EMS VCS3 for $600. The dude was originally asking $700, but I talked him down to $600. After I bought it I brought it into a local used music shop to see about getting some pins and the clerk recognized it. Anyway, it ended up being stollen from Carleton University and was confiscated by the police. I got my money back in full a year later. Great story. brings a tear to my eye everytime I tell it...

Also, someone local to me was selling a recently serviced Roland RE-201 with a new reel of tape for $250 about a week ago! I missed it by a few hours :(

Was it located in Canada? I have that synth in my trunk if so. Needs a few things fixed, but it is still for sale. The seller doesn't really now much about shipping s**t, let alone synths.
