Vintage Speaker
#1
I've got a vintage speaker that I bought from a garage sale about ten years ago It came in a cabinet and cost me Au$20. The garage sale was at the deceased estate of an uncle of a friend of mine. By the time I got there most things had gone. Uncle was an old HiFi buff from way back. He'd obviously made the speaker cabinet.
I also scored a 60's all valve Revox reel to reel two track tape recorder for Au$25.
I was looking around for some info about it a couple of days ago when I found a couple of ads for second hand speakers of the same type. I was just FLABBERGASTED at their price.

To paraphrase Frankie Howard, your Flabber has never been so gasted.

That must be approximately AU$1000.

Sell that speaker and go on holiday

I'm certainly thinking it could fund something else.[ Travel/gear ]
I must look up what the Revox might be worth.

Was the bag of weed included?  Vintage!
Someone should put that in their signature…

If you zoom in I think you should be able to identify that it's a bag of screws for the back panel.
Putting scews and things in bags when dismantling things can save one a lot of frustration later. Evil

Maybe that's what i'll do if I sell this speaker.... Blow it on drugs. chairfall

Don't sell it. Do drugs and listen to Meddle on that speaker. I guarantee results.

Nice score! Now you just need three more exactly like it so you can break out Quadrophenia.

I have a tape copy of Darkside otM quad mix made from a disk of said recording.

I could down mix it to mono and use the single speaker.. yeah
