So I had my old studio rack sitting around. Over 10 years old, rack rash, stripped screw holes, opensides. Definately not fitting in with my fancy new studio I'm building. So I threw it up on craigslist and asked for trades. I wasn't interested in money. I said anything music related, make me an offer.
I was offered broken guitar pedals, working ones, midi floorboards, garbage microphones, a few cheap recording interfaces... I finally settled on two Hercules guitar stands and $20.
