Christmas Karma BBE 482i

Post by Don » Sat Dec 07, 2013 8:18 am

Cleaning out one of my closets. Purchased several of these a few years back while on sale. Came across a new one still in the box. Just let me know if you want in. I will put the names in a hat and pull out the winner on Christmas Day. I will try and bump every week or so to keep this near the top of the forum for those that don't check in on a regular basis. Only caveat, if you decide you don't like the results, you must Karma to another member, rather than sell.

Nice Karma Don! You're a super guy to think of folks here instead of just cashing it in!

You guys should jump in and take a shot at playing with one of these! They are a neat sweetening tool. Like Bob says about his circuit, "sure it's not the original signal, but if it sounds good...why not, as long as you can remove it again".

There has been a running thread fairly lately about using a BBE on a forum someplace. Maybe on the Steve Hoffman hardware forum.

I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!

Oh count me in, free is nice, but being able to say I beat these guys out of it just adds spice to the sweetness.

I'm thinking my son would enjoy it too...if I let him.
