So far it looks like there are about 3-4 people who are interested. The
question of getting units "maxxed" with 16 Mb has come up a couple of
times but since they don't come that way from the factory I think it
might be best for everyone to deal with the memory issue individually.
Maybe someone wishes to create another RAM co-op...
It' s been my experience that music stores can never compete with places
likes Chipmasters or Data Memory Systems in terms of price and I'm sure
that there would be labor costs involved in having the store tech install
the RAM in 5-10 EDPs.
As I mentioned before they will most likely want to get paid before
placing thier order to Gibson, since it would be a real drag to to be
sitting on a stack of unsold EDP's which they have paid inbound frieght
on. The idea is that the store can place one call to Gibson, get a single
large shipment of units, (which would cost less in shipping fees than
having them shipped individually) and they are guaranteed to be sold and
move them out quickly with a minimum of hassle.
As far as I can tell Alto Music will be making about $60 per Echoplex &
maybe $10 on the pedal (this is a guess but I'm probably close...) not
much profit...even if we get to 10 orders
I will call the store & ask how they prefer to deal with payment/orders
We can let this process loop for a while so people get a chance to peruse
thier finances & think about it. Who knows? maybe someone else can get a
email me privately with name address & tel. # if you want in on this -
It makes it easier to keep track of everyone since I'm a digest
Loopers for all!
