    Hey, you can still pick them up in the UK for £45 second hand, or £70 brand new. For all you US members thats about $100 and $150 :)
  6. That's not bad, I'd like to have one but I imagine it would cost as much to ship one from the UK as it would to just pony up for one over here. Any particular reason why they're more common on your side of the ocean?

    No idea, that's just the way it seems to be :)

    i believe thats because akai targeted the UK market more when they released their effects pedals. not sure if thats because of the number of bands experimenting with synthy/electronic sounds into rock settings in england at the time?

    That's a good call Xan. Look at Kasabian / Muse / yourcodenameis:milo lots of synth.

    also prodigy and radiohead to some extent..

    its just an idea tho, but it seems like all the akai gear coming off ebay is from the uk.
  13. what do they usually go for in the US now?
    I purchased mine from musicians friend for 100 bucks a few years ago and never thought that it was worth much. I don't want to sell it since I use it so extensively in my bass/drum duo but I would be interested to know what they go for now.
  14. Usually around 170-200. Not nearly as much as the deep impact but still quite a bit considering how few people could really use one. I might have to keep an eye on UK auctions, I'd prolly go $125 for a used one in good shape.
