I'm the original owner of the gear I sell. It has thoroughly been tested and you even have a day to test it yourself. I'm not here to make a profit like a lot of people, just trying to lose as little as possible on gear I've purchased usually new. Gear I've respected and used to make music. I prefer to sell to people that are going to use this gear to make music themselves and resell when they add more channels, upgrade, or their needs change...I just try and recoup a little of the cost, I personally spent on this gear. So you get, Great Tested Gear, at a Great Price.
