On Oct 24, I had a doctor's appointment in my former town. Afterward, I visited the thrift stores. And, here we go.
At the first place, there was a desktop drum set for $5. If you decide to look it up, I think it was the version without the bass drum. It wasn't set up, just in the box. If I had room on my desk here, I maybe would have bought it. I never thought about bringing it to work. If I did decide to buy it, I would have checked if all the pieces were there.
There was nothing at the cat shelter charity thrift store.
At Goodwill, there was a soft floor foot keyboard for babies.
Then there was Savers. There was a small classical acoustic guitar for $25.99. I don't know if it was a kid's guitar, or just a Spanish classical or parlor guitar. Some of the strings were metal, which might not be good on the neck. I played with it a bit. I don't recall how it sounded. There was a Yamaha YPR-7 keyboard for $19.99. It was kind of scuzzy, but I played on it anyway. It has 5 sounds(Piano 1, Piano2, E Piano, Harpsichord, Vibes). I'm assuming the sounds were considered good for the time it was released. There was a Crate Bass amp for $59.95. It was a B80 XL. There was no way to test it out, unless they had a 1/4" cable that I could connect the Yamaha to. That, or, a microphone with a 1/4" plug. In the front of the store, there was an Epiphone Roadie travel guitar. There was also some Atari 2600 games. If my Atari was set up, I would have at bought Centipede.
My final stop was the thrift store where I know the manager. There was a First Act kiddie kb. My notes say clarinet. I remember there being a clarinet sized case that wasn't open that I didn't want to bother the ladies to open. There might have been an actual clarinet for sale. For other stuff, there was a sword. It looked Asian, but wasn't a samurai sword; it had a straight blade. It appears to be a ninjato.
I went in the back, and the possibly fried Casio was still there.
That is all for this week. While I won't be posting any more today, I will be pretyping something else(dun dun dun).
Barring anything bad, I should be back next week.
