Hugh, since when has that been an issue? Sometimes in life you just have to go for it, think of it like this, buying the Sonosax might galvanise me into getting the piano repaired, sort of the cart before the horse approach.
Anyway, the piano was all right for that BBC recording, but the Beeb did get a call the next day from someone called Mr Angry from the Home Counties complaining that the piano was half broken, and the mixer used was obviously not up to scratch, and how could they have possibly broadcast such a travesty?
Don’t worry, my wallet remains closed, my god, I could get an original ARP2600 for that sort of money.

:D :D :D

There's a simple checklist before purchasing:

- are the faucets in your bathroom plated in gold? No buy
- are the faucets in your bathroom *made* of gold? Maybe buy
- do you have more than one bathroom? Buy

Alternatively, your name starting with Sheik and ending with <bin something> helps.

Well, there you go, we actually have "three" bathrooms, so that’s that decided then.
I’ll have to look elsewhere, for something of a slightly better quality, I feel another thread coming on..."what’s the best mixer over fifty grand? suitable for use in a damp basement with dodgy electrics and half broken piano?"

All with faucets made of gold?

Then zero problems :D

Meanwhile, I'm gonna look for these Arab relatives from the times of the first crusade....
