PA and lighting auction
« on: February 11, 2019, 06:35:44 pm »

I just got this notice for a soCal auction.
Sound, lighting, truss, road cases.
Some OK, some junk.

I could stare into those Clay Paky B-Eye K20s for daze  8) .  Look to be some potential scores, but not having a freight forwarder on board rules out we remote-types.

Last century I bought a box of "Busted Microphone Stands" for $25.00
A bit of cutting, welding, and mix'n match netted me custom stands for Hat, Snare, Kick, 2 Floor Toms, 3 or 4 Guitars, a couple of extended booms, and *1* standard mic stand.

Look through the "busted" bins carefully, and use your imagination.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

Things labelled as 'misc cables' or 'pile of stuff, not sure if it works' are always my favorites, because you can score them CHEAP and usually get something worthwhile, especially if it's cable

I picked up like 200 molelock connectors at an auction for under $5. While not useful for anything, the scrap value was nearly $200. No one knew what they were, but they were almost a pound of brass each. Dropped them off at the scrapyard on my way home from the auction and paid for a bunch of the other things I bought right then and there.

When a/v auctions get shared on public sites it kind of makes me sad, as the price for everything in the auction tends to increase by 15-20%, which often is the difference between a good deal and regular used price once you factor in buyers premiums and shipping.

There's a 14% premium on winning totals plus the local sales tax of 7.75% so you would have to be getting a really good deal to compensate for the almost 22% additional as well as any shipping costs -Even driving down from LA on the 5 is a pain when pickup time is during business hours.

However in the background of the lot-picture for the EV SXA-250 there's a couple Danley boxes -too bad they aren't for bid!
