There comes a time in everyone’s life that they have to cut the strings of the past, and start living in the now. When a person reassesses his or her life and makes a conscious decision not to keep holding on to things. So, I’m reaching one of those milestones today.
I’m, of course, talking about selling a piece of audio gear.
Not exactly Earth-shattering after that buildup, eh?
Well, here’s the deal…I’m getting rid of the first piece of studio rack gear I ever bought. Kinda weird. The end of an era, you might say, but I am doing it nonetheless.
The gear in question is the FMR Audio RNC (Really Nice Compressor) 1773. It’s been a staple of my signal chain for almost ten years, and it was tough coming to the decision to sell it, given how awesome the piece of gear is, and how useful it’s been to me these last *mumblemumble* years.
Now I hear some of you wondering, “if it’s so good, then why get rid of it?” And you, sir or madam, would be perfectly right to ask such a valid question. Here’s the reason why. I’ve joined the fraternity of lunchbox owners.
And no. I don’t mean one of those.
