A (sort of) fair price even without the mods:

That 303 is in rough shape, and the mods aren't all installed and working....


Narrowly missed this bargain today:

I like it. It will look like s**t in a few years if it's spray paint, though.

There's two Octave Kittens and a nice Cat on right now.
Too futurist to live.

Be interesting to see what the Cat and Kittens go for. They always go way too low IMHO. Except for the time that Kitten went for $1700. I love my SRM. I'd never sell it. It just sounds like nothing else and the modulation possibilities are bananas. Especially for percussion sounds. I'll never forget the time there was an absolutely perfect Octave Kitten on Kijiji locally for $500 and I'd just got my SRM and I was like "Why do I need that?" Stupid P. I even had the 5 bills sitting around.

In fact, I just took it in for a calibration and service and I'm hoping the tech will be able to do some of the mods in the service manual that I asked for. Gonna start with asking for a HP/BP/NP/LP switch for the SSM2040, a 12/24db switch and a white/pink noise switch (I love me pink noise.) If he can make that happen maybe I'll get him to make a ring mod or to modularize it. But I'm gonna start small, see how much they'll charge me for these mods and the calibration. He'll also have his hands full with the Moog Source I brought in. I got it for $500, it looks perfect but it seems to mos def have some issues.

Like it hardly makes any sound and when you turn the wheel either way it just keeps going up and won't come down. Yep, issues.

MKS-30 with a PG-200 for $200.

The MKS-30 has some issues apparently, but I know these PG-200's are going for about that ALONE, and almost triple the going rate of a JX-3P if bundled with one.

New Jersey Craigslist, http://newjersey.craigslist.org/msg/1370796980.html

If I had $200, I'd jump on it. I'm so broke, and I'm so ready to quit my job. sad isn't it [-o<

For the record, the seller was willing to take $150 for everything :wink: PG200 even came with the original carrying case! At least one voice is dead, possibly two however.. so not the perfect deal exactly.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Gooooooood. I'm you someone snagged that. Get a JX-3P and hold onto both. I bet they'll only go up in value from here.

If only I waited a bit longer to post. Sold a laptop for a few hundred dollars, and would have totally had the extra money.

Oh well :) Enjoy it!
