    Welcome to what will hopefully be my one-time-only PACKRAT RECOVERY SALE: Hoping that you guys can get some useful stuff out of my struggle to not hoard and be a little more realistic about completing projects. Shipping will be a flat $5 for totals under $20, FREE for $20 or over. In keeping with the theme of the listing, not interested in trades. PM with requests, I'll take them in the order they are received. PayPal is quickest, I'll accept Postal Money Orders also. I'm putting a few other items up for sale soon in separate threads, of course no additional shipping if you add any of this stuff on. I'll come back & drop links at the end of this post..

    Hipshot D-tuner, exact fit for the larger 70s style Jazz tuning machines (eg Geddy Lee or '75 RI). SOLD.

    Chrome Jazz pickup cover - still in mailer bag, never used. SOLD.]

    Vintage (50s or maybe early 60s) Daka-Ware brand Bakelite knobs (black). Pretty cool retro vibe, has set screw and will fit on your typical solid or split-shaft control. Size-wise about the same as the small (tone) knob on a Jazz bass. I have about a dozen of these. $3 each or $5 for 2.

    It's a tone pot, not a volume pot. Check on the Has-Sound website, it's the item called 'bass guitar midrange/tone control.' In the up position you can adjust the amount of midrange cut, in the down position it functions like a regular tone pot. I used the mid cut to dial up a quick slap tone.

    Or, if you're talking about the dual concentric pot, it's two independent pots so they can be individually adjusted (the chrome knobs are two stacked in the one package). PM me back if I haven't explained well enough...

    Thanks -- you know, the hardest thing is going back in here to update the thread and seeing everyone else's for sale postings..."hey, maybe I could use this...no, no, WAIT!"...it's kinda like attending your AA meeting in a bar.

    The last Macintosh with an ADB port was discontinued in August 1999, so that Steinberg MIDI interface is most likely going to the recycling center.

    I've got several ADB keyboards and mice in a closet, but then I'm a support guy; I still have a few clients with machines that old. If someone's keyboard breaks, they're almost impossible to find any more.

    (And I even have one of the original Apple MIDI interfaces...I'm a bit of a pack rat too!)

    Heh, yeah, I work in IT too but don't usually encounter Macs at my day job...believe it or not I used this in conjunction with my trusty PowerMac 7100AV until quite recently. With an Audiomedia II card and some ProTools type plug-ins it held its own up til the advent of ultra-cheap 96/24 stuff last year...

    Proud to report, though, that I have neither the PowerMac or the Audiomedia II card in my basement. No comment on ADB keyboards and mice. Hey, anybody need a 2x speed external SCSI CDS burner? Cost $600 new, I'd let it go for a lot less. I even have a couple spare caddies...I guess I still have a ways to go on that path to recovery.

    Bump for baby steps.
