I am looking for anybody's broken/damaged/malfunctioning/old/TLC-needing equipment.

Whether it is (to you) completely trash-worthy, flawed beyond usability, or surplus to needs, I would be interested in taking it off your hands. No matter what the condition is, I am very likely to want it.

Looking for anything like:

- Guitars (electric or electric-acoustic)
- Amps (valve or solidstate, anything!!)
- Cabs (any size at all)
- Speakers (any size at all)
- Tubes/valves (as long as they WORK, they will do nicely)
- Components (new or used whatever)
- Pedals (PCBs, Components, Enclosures, complete products, or anything in between)
- Transformers, large capacitors and major components (anything whatsoever)
- Pickups (anything at all)
- Boxes (as in headshells, cabinets and chassis's, not cardboard packaging)
- Anything rack related (if it can be rack-mounted, I want it)
- Knobs, dials, sliders, pots and switches (any type at all)
- Faceplates (whatever you have)
- Logos/badges (whatever you have)
- Anything studio related (outboard gear, soundcards etc)

You can in essence use me like a recycling facility. I will take your unwanted/dead gear and put it, or parts of it, to good use.

Ideally, I would appreciate donations of kit, but if it -really- isn't economically viable, we could see about coming to an arrangement. My pockets are pretty bare though (thanks to guitars haha), so if free is an option, I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks a load UG guys.
Looking for any of your spare 12" speakers or electronic components (valves, transformers, anything!) and a Peavey Wolfgang USA. Message me!

I want your broken/unwanted gear, UK only. Message me!

I have a strat copy that could be useful for you? it's a bit tatty and has stickers on it, but could be useful for a full restoration? it's yours for £20 plus postage.

I have a DS1 new and Krank Distortus Maximus ( that was malfunctioning ) that has some really good parts on it, thing is built like a tank if your interested buy the DS1 an I'll throw in the Krank for parts or a rebuild. Depending on where you are located it might not be worth it.

i am really interested in the DS1 and DistMax. how much for the two of them?

In what way was the DistMax malfunctioning? a bit of detail would be great thanks

I am located in Wales, so as long as you are UK-based, postage should be ok.

cheers

I am in Canada so postage might be pricey let me check, I could give you the DS1 for $35 with the Distortus Maximus for free, the Maximus had a board problem IMO ( no sound with the switch engaged ) it only worked in bypass mode so I was told to destroy it rather than go thru a customs fiasco like I have in the past with equipment. Canada Customs are real dicks and try to screw me every time ( as Patrick the tech at Krank learned ). I was not even able to damage the unit as it was built so well ( I performed an impact test similar to my QC days and it didn't even scratch it with a heavy hammer, after a couple of shots only a few knobs fell of the potentiometers poles and they can be reattached with a screwdriver, the PCB is not damaged as far as I can see though it is inverted and hard to check the fids and solder masking etc.. all components seems to be physically operational though I cannot tell without a multimeter. The chassis and knobs are like a tank and I myself wanted to use the parts as I had to provide a written agreement that I would not rebuild it for resale in order to receive a replacement.
