hi, i got a minolta z1 3.2 mp. very nice camera with tons of features. there's a crack on the bottom but still works fine. include a 2gb sd card, usb connectors as well as audio-video cable.

hit me with a reasonable offer,gb cart, gba, odd watch, diy kit... anything, i don't use any longer since i have a canon xs.

this is a pic of a z1


and this is what you can do with it, around 300 pictures taken in 55 minutes with a single set 4 x AA batteries and it wasn't empty: ... 12Aout2007#

MPC2000xl Studio Plus Model - 8 outs, digital in out, upgraded ram, smpte, multi effects board. Needs some love, top four pads can be tricky some times. And needs new NV Slider. Its still completely useable i use it daily without any trouble at all, LCD screen is Flawless and all buttons are great. If you put about a hundred dollars into it (new pads and NV slider it would be as good as new) i just never felt the need to, was fine using it the way it was.

Hey, I'm looking to trade a recently serviced and great condition Yamaha CS-50 for one of the following:

nonfunctional Moog Memorymoog
nonfunctional Roland Jupiter 8
Studio Electronics Omega 4 or 6
Korg Trident MkII w/ Midi

the value of these yamahas are going through the roof as they're going extinct (getting gutted for voice cards for CS-80s)!
The yamaha comes with the legs and hardtop, as well as two extra slider pots (extremely hard to find!).

I have a bunch of things which I thought might come in handy but which are frankly gathering dust. Not literally, of course: most everything is kept with a dustcover on it.

Everything is up for trade. Preference given to Canadian traders, but I'll consider the US too if you we can work something out when it comes to shipping. Pickup is cool (I'm located in Burlington, ON, Canada but work in Mississauga, ON. Either location can be accommodated). Plenty of good trader refs on AH and here. I'm a non-smoker and the two cats aren't let in or even anywhere near the synth room. Ever. I can't vouch for previous owners though.

Dave Smith Prophet'08 keyboard. Original non-pot edition. Has the jumpy encoder problem you've heard and read about. It's half a semitone off in tuning but I've just offset the pitch globally to compensate, so it plays in tune. Other than that, it's a 9.9 out of 10 cosmetically. It's a workhorse, but honestly I find I'm playing it less than I am my 25 year old DW-8000.

Yamaha A3000 sampler. Some rack rash, and one of the front panel buttons likes to stick a bit (but it's functional). All encoders work, which is important. Has the onboard SCSI hard drive. I thought I'd like this, but I find the architecture is more f**k byzantine than Constantinople. I'm getting too old to learn convoluted operating systems.

Yamaha TG77 synth. Has some rack rash, volume knob is missing (though you can still adjust the volume by pinching twisting the knob's post - it sounds worse than it is). Display works fine other than the lack of a backlight. All other functions present and accounted for.

Boss DR-220A Drum Machine. About the only 20+ year old Roland/Boss drum box that isn't overpriced these days. Volume slider is a bit scratchy; otherwise in very good condition. Has a simplified Roland "grid" display and trigger in so you can clock it from an external sequencer.

Also a handful of pedals:

Boss CE-2 Chorus - The second best chorus pedal Boss ever released. This is the MIJ version that's cosmetically been through the wars but works just fine.

Boss PH-2 Super Phaser - Similar to the Chorus, it's in fair condition, but sounds great and works well. Made In Japan as well.

MXR Wylde Overdrive It distorts things. Used maybe three or four times, never gigged. Essentially new. Any mintier and it would called Franklin.

Behringer UC200 Ultra Chorus Cheap'n'cheerful and not bad sounding, though it's hardly "ultra". Nearly mint.

What am I looking for? Here are some ideas:

- Mid-range '80s polyphonic synths, wholly or partially analogue: Polysix. MonoPoly. Microwave mark 1. DW-6000. Junos. You catch my (oscillator) drift.
- Rackmount effects.
- Analogue mono synths, of any vintage.

Like I said, I'm just not getting a lot of utility/enjoyment from the above items, so I putting the onus on something that (hopefully) will get used.

Moog Little Phatty Stage I - In 100% working condition. Comes with power cable. No manual or original box sadly. Does not have the most recent software update. I don't miss the arpeggiator but I would miss my presets. Can load it up if someone wants it. Pix on request. It's located in College Station, TX. I'd say probably only an American trade please. Sending stuff overseas is mega pricey.

Moog Source, Korg Mono/Poly ; ARP Solus
I would be willing to add a certain amount of $$ to make it equitable.

- Roland Juno 60 with Kenton Pro DCB/MIDI interface. Excelent condition.

-Roland Juno 106

- Minikorg 2 (not too interested in trading except for something really cool).

-Roland EM-101

-Korg ER-1 Mk1

- Casiotone 101

- Boss DD3

- Siel Orchestra parts

I like 1970s synths, Oberheim stuff (SEM?), MSs, maybe a Korg MicroPreset, very interesting effects.

I don't need/want mid 1980s - 2000s synths

Item is located in 97403

I have a novation A-station I'll trade for an MS2000r.

I know this is a bit of a long shot but I only want to trade it for that.
Otherwise I'll keep it.

I have a brand new Electro Harmonix Deluxe Electric Mistress with the inline cable that I'd like to trade even for a new EHX XO Frequency Analyzer. These are the smaller form factor units. The DEM I have had sat in the store for about 15 years before i bought it, but was never even used. I pay shipping, you pay shipping. Thanks!
