Help with this offer? Should I buy?

Post by varun213 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 1:31 am

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vermona-DRM1-DR ... r#viTabs_0

I want to get the vermona drm really badly and I am looking at this auction above, It'll save me a good chunk of money if I get with this one but I am kinda worried on going with used or barely used analog hardware synths.


Realistically is there much to worry about? Anybody have experience buying used analog hardware and is there much to worry about ?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Perfect Circuit has been around for a while. I've never bought from them, but they have a lot of sales under their belt.

would there be any issues in buying a used Analog drum machine?

I wouldn't worry about it. A DRM-1 can't be that old..ten years maybe. It's not like buying 30 year old gear.

I've purchased from Perfect Circuit and they are reputable.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Back in 2009, I bought a PPG EVU from them. It arrived with an issue. They had me return it and they fixed it and shipped it back. Great experience. Have bought several items from them since without issues.

I just got one of their demo items, and they shipped quickly and double boxed it. All factory items were included, and it was in mint condition as advertised - looked like it was never touched.
