More Gear Must Go.

I have retrieved a bunch of items from my storage space, and they, too, must find good homes.

I'm in purge mode, all this old gear I don't use would be happier in homes that appreciated them more. Write me at md@mikedoughty.com if anything here appeals to you.

VOX AC-30 AMPLIFIER.

I've sold this amp.

Tchad Blake had me play through one of these on Ruby Vroom; I bought this amp right after recording, and it was my touring amp from the day the record came out to the last gig Soul Coughing ever played, the Dirty Danny benefit at Bowery Ballroom in December of 1999. (a gig distinguished, for me, by the fact that I OD'd and nearly suffocated onstage during "St. Louise." Hoo boy.)

Previously, I represented this thing as in bad shape--but I just played it, and WEIRDLY, it seems fine! Sounds great! I'm stunned.

The case was painted by Steve Keene. If anybody ever saw Soul Coughing, they might remember the colorful stage set; it was made up of road cases like this one, painted by Steve, of whom I was, and still am, a big fan.

It's crazy heavy, especially with the case, probably EXPENSIVE LIKE A MOFE to ship. I would like to sell this to somebody in or near New York who can come pick it up.

I'm asking $903.55 (I'm asking weird prices for all these because I'm superstitious about round, plain numbers)

ANOTHER FENDER CORONADO.

A secondary guitar from later Soul Coughing tours, I opened the case and found this Coronado still in the "$300" tuning!! Weird. It's in OK shape--electronics are fickle--I'm askin' $798.35.

STEVE KEENE PAINTED ROAD CASE.

Looks like this thing might be sold, I'll keep you posted.

A picture of the front of this case is up top of this blog entry. I don't know where the hell the amp is--it was the amp I used on a few songs that I played sampler on--the dialogue samples in the extended end-jam on the live version of "I Miss the Girl" for instance--and the keyboard riff on "Houston."

Makes a lovely endtable! In honor of its predominant use, I'm askin' $300.

FENDER MUSTANG.

I sold this one.

Electronics = fucked. But, MAN, does this thing sound good (when extensive jiggling gets the pickups working).

I don't know anything about what year this thing came out. Anybody know? The pickups are odd-looking. I'm not quite sure what to ask for it--once again, this bad boy needs to spend a little time in the loving hands of a repair person. My best guess--$303.33? Is that sensible?

EFFECTS PEDALS.

I sold these already.

These were the pedals I used live on the El Oso tour. Do they work? Who knows. Like Earl Scheib, I'm asking $99.95.

BIZARRELY MAIMED FERNANDES WITH ROLAND GK PICKUP.

This one's sold.

When I first started messing around with the Roland guitar synth, I got the synth pickup (the GK-2A) and this unfortunate Fernandes, from which I ripped out the pickups, thinking it would look a little cooler. Trust me, believe it or not, it actually does.

GK-2A is workin'. No case, so either you're in NYC, or I'm throwing into a box and it'll get tossed around unmercifully by UPS. $77.07 and it's yours.
