[AV Media Matters] Broke my heart
My company just moved. We moved from a huge facility to a nice little
with new Pro Tools systems.
Before the move I advertised locally to sell some analog 1/4"
decks. Actually, I advertised on this list about two years ago. No
I did manage to sell two Studer A810's .Both for $500. One worked
fine and the other for parts. But, I had to GIVE away two working
807's. I gave them away.
But, sadly, I had to dumpster about 7 Revox PK III's and an old
Hitachi one inch video tape machine.
Actually, I gave away two rooms of used audio and video stuff. I
couldn't sell it. One little man who came to our public sale and stayed
late, got to take it all for nothing. We were under time pressure to
leave the old place and get the new shop up and running.
Finally, due to a dumpster that was getting full, I had to sledge
hammer a beautiful MCI 1/4 deck into little pieces to make it fit. The
owner couldn't watch. Years earlier he had taken out a second mortgage
his house to get that machine. It was built like a tank and took quite a
while to get it busted up.
I wish I had more time before the move to get these machines to
happy homes. But the decision to move was made quickly and we took
desperate measures. Actually, to see how uninterested people were about
audio compressors and exciters, motion control camera stands, grid
systems and studio lights, made me think. I guess our industry is
changing. I'm sad about all of the previously precious equipment but we
have to step firmly into the future. Its gone and being forgotten now.
those new Pro Tools HD systems really rock!
Oh yeah, We couldn't bring ourselves to give away or toss the three
AMS Neve Logic 3's we still have. They are in long term storage. We
pull them out one day and laugh. They are for sale.
Things are changing folks!
