So what're your guys best finds and where from? :D

Anything from online to pawn shops, my best is probably just an MV being pawned for barely anything.

Circa 2015, driving around Riverside, CA on 90 degree plus day. Pull up to a pawn shop with $4-500 in my bank account. Saw they had a Zoom ST-224 and a Yamaha SU-200 for $100 each. The 224 had a printed out manual. Had a pay-by-da-minute phone and didn’t want to use the internet to look up these samplers (lazy and I’m a cheapa$$) so I chose to get the 224. Went home to find out both were going for $170 or so regularly. Went back a few weeks later and the SU-200 was gone. Still glad I got the 224.

Similar deal, but circa 2012 during college (sophomore year). Riverside as well. Found an Ensoniq ESQ-1 for 75 bucks. A few buttons missing (find em’ on Syntaur.com for chump change) and some minor gunk makin’ it look dusty and questionable. I asked for $60 and they said “let’s meet at $70, tax included.” Went home and saw that it was a great deal and a friggen analog filter synth!

Saved up a bunch of gift cards from a few holiday events at the big brand store I used to work at (they’d give you gift cards if you worked on Black Friday or July 4th or day before Christmas type stuff). Ended up with $350 worth of cards at the company I literally never shop at myself. Go online and look at stuff. Find cheapie guitars. Boring. Find some Digitech guitar pedals. Cool cool. Type in Moog. WHAT!?! Moog comes up!! Got a deal on a nice Moogerfooger in the end, most of which paid in my saved up gift cards.
