I've worked with the same sales guy for 5 years. It never left the store. Some cosmetic rack wear and minor scratches. It looks like it was moved around a couple of times in the store.
Everything works exactly like it should. I put 20 hours on the unit. Used for vocals with a U87. Guaranteed to be in excellent working condition.
I pay my local UPS store to wrap, package, and box the unit professionally. It is worth the extra charge I think. I had a question about the serial number.
The sticker is missing from the back. They did not imprint the number into the metal, it was a sticker. I have never known anyone to clone these. It looks and sounds like a Avalon Design 737 should.
My local UPS store ships to main Minneapolis hub at 4:00PM CST. If not I have to wait a day or two to make sure the account is not bogus or fraudulent to be covered by their policies.
