I found a new "old stock" MTD online from a music store about an hour away from my place (no price listed). I did my research on this model (reviews/prices/features) and found a few online stores selling them for approx. $1500 cdn (then there is the shipping cost, duties, taxes etc.). I called the store and got a price after a discussion of $399cdn (not including tax)! That is like $50US right now lol! I drove out there asap, tried it and bought it. I will be doing my own setup then trying it out in a band situation Monday. Cheers!
