Bug system for sale

Post by k_bntzn »

So today i saw this in my local norwegian sale forum.

Text is in norwegian but short story is, all 1 version modules and a ridicolous low price.

That's a beautiful little system! Wish I had the cash and was local. Does it say whether he will ship it?

Guys, i have no part in this sale except from sharing the link. If you need to contact him you have to find out for yourself. He is on social media and has a website so its not that hard to reach out. Considering the rise of vintage gear prices and out of production bug devices i have seen sold recently it is more than a fair asking price. This is a piece of history!

History or not - those oak cheeks were f'ing heavy! As were those original black frames - really they weren't so good, partly through my lack of skills but also the local metal place did a balls-up.
Otherwise nice! I wonder what could fit the final space..

Sorry, was just curious/unable to decipher and thought you knew more! I'm in no position to buy a system and have to pretend that advert doesn't exist anyway!! Very nice looking set up, love the old wood topped joystick - hope it goes to a good home

No harm done, i just wanted to mention that i can not get involved anymore. There is also another listing localy for a standard bug synthvoice deal at a ridiculous price. That one been up for many months so i think the marked up here is saturated atm or all the musicians are broke as hell because of lockdown.

I'm sure if they put on an international auction site like eBay or reverb (or even here) they'd get snapped up in no time at those prices. Local listing sites like Gumtree are filled with junk in comparison here!

This is a lovely little system, and looking at it evokes a strange sort of nostalgia for an earlier era of modular. If I had any confidence that this site was good with dealing with international orders (and had the money right now), then I might be all over it.

Since that doesn't appear to be the case, I'm content with it as eye candy for procrastinating on consulting with Tom on the new blue system that I hope to pick up at some point this year.

Yeah Finn.no isn't really a site like Reverb or eBay, it's more like Gumtree. I don't think people list stuff on there expecting or wanting to sell internationally or deal with postage, it's for local collection primarily.

It was definitely a conscious decision! Everyone in the modular community knows about reverb,eBay and the BST here.
I totally get it - shipping pricey things worldwide is incredibly stressful sometimes.. especially right now with how the mail systems are everywhere.
Hopefully it finds a good home locally! Very cool system.

Alright, this lovely system arrived in Sunny Florida from the Great White North today! Lasse was super cool to get to know, all around awesome to work with.

This makes about 4 frames of old blues for me but I am at a point where it would makes sense to see if anyone else that is cobbling together an old Blues system from what they can find willy nilly wants to do a bit of trading as I need a few utilities and have more of some modules than I need. I might give it a few weeks before posting in the BST but feel free to reach out directly before then.
