That's just my opinion...
In much the same way that I think people who spend £20,000 on some particular vintage of Les Paul ... or wine or car or furniture, whatever, are loonies and are stupid to pay those prices.
Lucky for us stupid people that we are happy with what we buy then eh? Guess you should have a bit more fun in your life! Shame to see actually that you feel the need to be so judgemental.
Anyways that is not the discussion here. The fact remains that you might think that only a handful of people would actually buy a re run of for example the TB-303 and that people only pay so much because they are hard to come by. Truth is that thousands of people around the world part with good money at the moment for shoddy remakes, half working originals and anything that claims to generate the real sound. That in itself means there is a pile of money to be made which Roland is missing out on. Do you have any idea how many people by one clone, then are not happy with the sound and buy another one in the hope it does satisfy their needs? I have seen countless people do just that!
I don't expect you to understand us 'loonies' in the dance music industry. But it would be nice to receive some respect without being called 'stupid'.
By the way anyone selling a TB-303 in decent conditions? get in touch!! LOL
