Ensoniq EPS16 Plus $60

Postby Max Websta » Sat Dec 24, 2011 10:16 pm

I just copped an Ensoniq EPS16 Plus for $60. This must be synth year for me! My Solaris arrived a couple weeks ago and I got a free Casio CZ3000.
The EPS will be fun for quick and easy sampling & editing. I found working with an ASR10 quite inspiring when I had one. For the price The EPS16 can't be much different.

Its a great unit. Wish it had the same memory capabilities as the ASR. Still a lot of fun, though. let me know when you want to sell it ;)

Most of my good deals have come from CL. Often times people will sell things at a good price if they feel you are offering a good home for what they are selling. Open a dialog, ask reasonable questions about the product & make friendly conversation. It doesn't always pan out but, a good friendly connection is often better than going in with a lowball offer.

But, seriously, if you want to sell it, I'd give you a lot more than you paid. 8-)

Just gotta keep an eye out! I got a synth recently for next to no money (came with fault risk though) - all sorted now, a great item! I sold a my Akai S01 for £30 ($35 USD) as that is all the thing is worth! (in my opinion).

My first EPS16+ came at no money too, I think Ensoniq were so out of fashion at that time, so I bought another one! Again for very little money. Ya just gotta keep looking! Have to say, I don't think there are any bargains on eBay anymore, I've had my share mostly when eBay first started and people just wanted to get rid of stuff etc.

Just a note, avoid "plastic poultry" ;)
