How’s Business Guys?

I had a question on an auction the other day from a guy wanting to brighten up his rig with a modded Tubescreamer I have listed.

Contact Me!

At long last I have decided to have a separate website to support my Trademe auction listings and another website to sell direct to my customers. Trademe takes 7.5% of each sale as a success fee and in the current market this means that I either have to increase my prices or take the hit.

Auction Ethics

Rant time folks. I recently scored some really cool pedals off a guy and had to pick them up. They were old and vintage and the guy had a house load of really cool stuff that he was going to list on Trademe over the next few months. I had a good look through it

I can’t understand how you justify your prices!

“I can’t understand how you can justify this price. You buy the pedal for $70 second hand on trademe, then add your mod which would cost less than $20 and add $100 to the price tag. Thats a joke! It’s not surprising I see your auctions closing without bids on them guido_hatzis (54 ) 10:44

Source Stuff.co.nz

Tis the season to be scammed, with New Zealand’s leading online auction site warning people not to trust any requests for instant international cash transactions from online traders.

I want my guitar modded/repaired, can you help?

I don’t know the secret of success, but I know the secret of failure is trying to please everyone.

For that reason I tend to limit what I do to what I know I can do well, and then try to do it better than anyone else. Sometimes the best way to help someone asking

New Website

I thought it was time I modded my website so I’ve got the latest version of WordPress and added a few nice widgets and have been flat out like a lizard drinking adding content.

There’s still a long way to go with the different mods etc but give me a chance and we’ll be all

Spring Clean Sale Collection F.A.Q

I’m having a huge clean out of stuff on Trademe at present.

I usually don’t allow collections because I live in a remote rural location in the depths of Franklin. The nearest street light is 14 kilometers away. The local gas station is

Wah True Bypass With Input Buffer intact?

Yeah, I read that too. Amazingly my feedback on the full removal of the input buffer always comments about how much more improved the bypass signal is, yet it’s now claimed by a competitor that it’s is in fact worse.

You have to

I need a small single item, will you sell it to me and for how much?

I carry a personal stock of parts that I use for repairs and mods. I buy these in bulk from places like Ebay, Small Bear and Effects Connection in the USA. I usually have to spend between $NZ100 and $NZ300 to make this worthwhile because shipping kills this kind of thing.

As a result I

Other people are offering cheaper mods on Trademe

Firstly, I don’t believe that price is the main issue when it comes to your tone. The most important issue is your tone and your treasured effects pedals.

Secondly I could offer cheaper mods by cutting corners. I could offer an 808 mod
