Re:Boss ME-5& a little warning

Hi all,

I was sorting through some old gear , putting it aside for trade or sale
and I ran across this old Boss ME 5 multieffect that I had been using
with a synth that I loaned out, was I surprised.

I am test flying a Zoom 2100 I was doing so Sound on sound programming,
I pulled it out of the chain replaced it with the ME 5 with the Range at
500 and the feedback at 3 o'clock.  What I got was very nice sound on
sound effect.  The output was superior to that I have been able to coax
out of the 2100 and rivals my 1/2 track reel machines in some ways.

This unit must be selling on the used market for a pittance.  It is a
deal if you can find one.

This discovery made my day.  Earlier on I had called Victor Litz Music
about a Vintage Guitar Magazine special, a $99.00 Akai Headrush.  When I
called the salesman did not know about it (red flag) and I then
overheard another salesman tell him, "we're out of stock and not
carrying it it any more, but if you want one we can get you one for $199
or so  and  $12.00 shipping."  Needless to say if I want to pay street
price for an item I will call Eighth St. not Victor Litz (Who is Victor
Litz ???)   If you see the ad or their website, and you see a $99
Headrush or $50 Variwah or Intelliphase or a $75 Shredomatic, don't get
excited it probably won't be there. It must be one of those entertaiment
