I've only owned the Dunlop for a few months and its awesome. Tracks insanely well and the girth and growl controls make it a beast. I'm just needing the quirkiness that the aguilar octimizor offers... The M-288 has never left my studio and has original box... Its in new condition and has a stip of velcro on bottom that I can easily remove and put the original feet pads back on. Hit me with a PM. I'm Offering the M-288 + $25.00 PayPaled.... Thanks!
