Ok, hardly bargain of the century but i just won a vl1 for less than a tenner on ebay. Normaly i don't bother with them as people bid them up to 30+ at times. But i bent one last week and had a handy c64 alike sounding (something i seem unable to resist trying on anything these days) version on the go until i slipped with the iron doing the last two hookups, soldered two points together that i shouldn't have and didn't unplug it in time. No more drums for vl1.

Bugger :(

A bunch of assorted stuff yesterday, but the one I'm wanting to ask about is the Commodore 16 I got for $10. I figured I'd just put it up on eBay. It's in it's box with EVERYTHING, including a tutorial cartridge. Anyone with an experience on these? I know almost nothing about it.

A friend had one way back. I don't know a whole lot about them other than it was a very bizarre move on the part of commodore. From the little i saw of it running and the lack of support it recieved i could only gather that it was inferior in a lot of ways to the c64. Although having just read this it would seem this isn't necessarily the case.

I always remember thinking of it as having a more vic20 feel to it than a successor to the c64. This was probably down to the fact it had no sid audio which was half the reason a fair few games sold as well as they did. Stick a decent hubbard sound track on even the dullest of games and it became worth playing through to the end.

Yesterday
sk-1 for $2.99 CDN

Sunday Last Week
sk-10 for $2.99 CDN

I cant believe they charge so little for these keyboards at the thrift store I go to. They charge up to 9 dollars for shitty toy keyboards. I think they determine the price based on size, which makes me laugh. If only they knew how much you can get on ebay for these.

I'm not lying.. I'll snap some pics later on..

Electoyd: Yes I did find some tape for the reel to reels.. I also found another reel to reel.. A Bang & Olufson.. Can't remember the model. A copy cat for free is indeed very nice aswell.. You can get replacement tape on ebay I think..

I always say that while its still possible to actually stand up in your studio then you just don't have enough gear   :P

Actually i'm kind of grateful i don't have a dumpster full of music gear anywhere nearby, i have enough difficulty maneuvering past the piles of dead electronics in the hallway as it is  :D
