just found a triple rec that looks like a 2 channel but dude is saying its a 3 channel. it has the same amount of knobs as the dual I just got. serial no 15135. are these very good? do they have revisions like the duals?

Most likely Rev G. As far as I recall from the Early Dual FAQ, the Rev Fs go until about the mid 3500s?? Mine is 26XX and a Rev F. The Rev F is quite similar to a Rev G but it is tighter and darker, as I understand it.

My Recto is SN 5012 or something and is Rev. G.

Yes, they have revisions like the duals but only starting at Rev F through Rev G. These heads are killer as I have purchased a 2 ch Triple a few months back (and sold off my 3 ch Dual) This particular Triple would be a Rev G (around late 1999 to early 2000) I'd give it a playthrough and see if you might like it.

Cool, thanks! I think maybe I'll hold out for an F. I prefer tighter and darker tones. I had a G (blackface, chrome chasis) and foolishly sold it.

now dude wants to trade the nomad back for the dual rec. He claims there are problems with it. But I tested it thoroughly before meeting up with him to make sure everything worked fine. I think he just doesn't like it and realized that a 2 channel dual rec is better than a nomad. ain't happening.

and now he claims that there are buzzes, pops and noises. He just realizes that he shouldn't have made that trade. He's actually the one who approached me in response to my add trying to get rid of the nomad 100 head. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. He needs to lose my number now. I think I'm going to start using an assumed name for craigslist transactions.

=-o OOps. Did you at least give him a couple of hundred dollars to keep him quiet? He definitely got the short end of the stick on that one!

he did get the short end of the stick, but he's the one who wanted to trade a dual rec for a nomad. who am i to say no to that? I did drive 150 miles to do the trade.

150miles!! =-o

Ya, that was a costly and painful lapse of judgement on his part. I wonder what Nomads sell for now? If he sells high and buys a Dual low, he can mostly recoup his losses. =-/
