B-Stock refers to either overstock, or slightly used or demo equipment. Sometimes manufacturers will give a dealer a product to keep in a show-room, or to use on a special event for publicity. It's never really been owned, but is often times lightly used. Sometimes you can get B-Stock items that have never been used, but they've sat on the shelf long enough that the dealer just wants it gone.

So there is no difference in quality?

There really shouldn't be. We had Yamaha forward us a B-Stock M7CL for a show because our brand-new one wasn't ready from the factory (back in the early days of its release when they were back-ordered)... you wouldn't have known it was B-Stock unless you saw the e-mails and the sales orders.

Now, it also depends on what the individual considers B-Stock. Some places might have a piece of gear that sat on the sales floor for three years, got handled and demoed by every person who walked into the shop. At that point I wouldn't consider it B-Stock, but some places would.

The above opinions look like good advise to me, I suggest it’s time to get the Church top start budgeting for a new desk,



Agreed.

There are a lot of people who might see Behringer as a significant move up from Carvin.

so depending on your loyalty to USA brands I'd be looking at Mackie (USA)



I saw a Mackie SR32 the other day that said something about Made in China on the serial number tag.

(but hopefully better), (Yamaha perhaps?)



I'm under the impression that the lower end Yamaha analog consoles are also made in China.

or preferably desks like Allen & Heath's



I hear some of the lower end of that line is also made you-know-where...

you will get a much better life expectancy out of better built consoles, which obviously cost a bit more but cost less in the long-run.



Agreed.

thanks for the B-stock explanation Jeff.
You beat me to it.

It is also important to point out that b-stock items have full warranty.  So, basically, performance is guaranteed.

I'm almost positive that the GL series are made in China.  But I'll double check.  Regardless, they are one of the few consoles at that price range where construction is done using a modular approach. Making life really easy if you need to service it.

just my2cents.

take care
