Auction-o-rama...

by Chris Randall
 

If you're an auction-a-holic, you probably know about this site, but for those of you that actually _don't_ have all the free time in the world on your hands, this is kind of fun to browse. GL is one of the several companies that is contracted to unload all the useless shit that the US Government pays far too much money for, never uses, then eventually stacks on pallettes for disposal back to the American public.


(Yeah, do that math in your head: you now have the opportunity to buy something that, technically speaking, you paid for in the first place. You gotta love the government.)


There are some really good deals to be had; the caveat is that you usually have to go pick the shit up at whatever huge-ass supply depot it is sitting in. You want a whole pallette of Carvin bass amps? Look no further. You need a patchbay the size of Delaware? You've come to the right place. The prices are low, and about 4 times a year there is a specific auction for music gear (which is what the first link is.) You really never know what the hell you're gonna see there. Worth taking a browse now and again, I suppose. That is, unless you actually have, like, a life or something.

I see they have some Multiracial MD Recorders up for auction. Gotta pick one of those up-- mine only supports caucasians.
