    Yes I did!!

    Spiffing up the RC-71 remote...

    Got the strain relief installed...

    It cleaned up better than I thought. Too bad there are those scratches on the button panel, but still, overall, a pretty decent RC-71.

    And I know it's a bit over the top but I can never stand a dirty remote cable when the remote itself has been cleaned up. Still a ways to go on this one, but the section of cable in the background has been cleaned, the foreground has not:

    And a little work on the connector...the pins were a bit tarnished so I cleaned them up with a little Tarn-X...before and after shots:

    Time to get all these meter lamps firing...

    I hadn't thought of doing that...I'm so focused on the refurb. Maybe if the 388 is still here the next time my brother comes down to jam I'll hook it up.

    Right on! That's awesome. If I was closer to you I would so be interested in this. Shipping cross country would add too much to the price for me to be able to realistically consider it though, and I'd be nervous about UPS and would want to do it freight, which would probably be around $450. Ugh, I've wanted one of those for so long. Are you still set on selling it, or is it going to be one of those things that ends up being too nice to justify the sale? I've had my fair share of those.

    I will definitely be selling it. If life circumstances were different I suspect I might keep it, but they aren't, so I'll be sprucing it up the only way I know how which is as if it *was* going to stay mine, and put it up for sale. And I won't risk shipping it regardless of the carrier. It's too great a risk...I've had my hands on a fair number of larger pieces of gear...some decent and some very very sad...I think this 388 is the most solid pieces of Tascam mixing equipment I've dealt with...the fact the pots don't hardly scritchie at all, and I found notes on a cross brace by the tech at Atlas that tuned it up every couple years awhile back...it's been maintained. I do feel fortunate. I appreciate your interest in it, but we'd have to figure out a way to hand-exchange, and you're in line behind another member who's already reached out, so he has first right of refusal.

    Oh, I'm not in a position to buy this beautiful machine. I was just saying if we lived closer I'd definitely want to. I'd start selling off gear right now to be able to swing it by the time you got done putting the touches to it. The shipping is exactly my point too. First off, I worked at UPS for almost 3 years and saw what happens to packages first hand, and secondly it'd be really pricey to ship something that big and heavy. Whoever ends up with it is one lucky bastard.

    I always find the "worked last time I used it" to be funny. Can't they plug it in, try it, and then say "tested and working?'
