Make reasonable offer to him. That is just the asking price. People usually negotiate.

I'll pass. My Qtron+ is pretty good; I don't need to spend a bunch of $$$ on a 30 year old gizmo.

Oh, I'm sure someone will want it. This IS the place. Fascinating that the asking price was as much as it is.

My Q Tron just blew itself up this weekend - had to scramble and get a Q Tron plus for he next day's gig.

Th Q Tron sounds great - the MuTron might be slightly better - but the difference in cost is just not worth it

I wish I had remembered you had a gig Saturday night, I would have let you borrow mine for Copperfields.

How do you like the Q plus?

Happened to mine. open the back cover and check the electrolytic AC filter cap. was an 89c fix from radio shack. That is if you heard a pop and then saw some smoke. There are only a few electrolytic caps in there, look to see if the tops are busted open or rounded over rather than flat, or just plain exploded. :cool:

Yeah you're not supposed to let the smoke out of 'em. :wink:

fwiw, I think $475-ish is the going rate.
That one is a Steve Kimock model (built in AC cord).

No - it was during Dancin' - toward the end of the song all of a sudden no signal. Bypassed the loop - got signal. Turned off Q Tron - got signal. Q Tron on - no signal.

Very strange. Maybe it was just fed up with Dancin'!
