I hit the semi-weekly GC blowout sale today. This one was a big soire (pronounced swa-ray). Five bands in the parking lot (playing one at a time, praise god), Krispy Kreme doughnuts, free hot dogs, and lotsa crud they have been unable to move. My big one today was an AKG C4000B mic for $199 ($848 list). In box, with shock mount and foam wind filter. I just missed a Rode NT-1 for $99, which I wanted to pair with the one I got for free with my ADAT. They were selling some $300 and $400 ADAT snakes for $30 and $40, but I already have one. I got my daughter a Remo African "squeeze-it-and-it-changes-pitch" drum and some mounted castanets. I had to leave after an hour and a half because the energy level was just too high for an old fart like me, and they only print so much money.
