Some Important Information About Vintage Music Gear

Jun 25, 2008
What are music gear and why do you need to know about the vintage music gear? Music gear can be a stage speaker, any kind of sound equipment, DJ equipment, recording equipment, amplifiers, microphones, speakers, digital effects, you name it. So what is the use of knowing about those objects that already are obsolete and sent to the vintage category?

Vintage music gear are a form of beautiful visual art, an important chunk of the musical history, scientific marvels of the time, acoustical marvels, and a grand investment.

Age is not the only factor by which we can term an instrument vintage. All the gear have some criteria to make them vintage such as the manufacturer, structural and aesthetic design, importance in history, uncommonness, sound, and playability.

The collectors will want to see all the elements, along with the enjoyment factor of course, before taking the musical gear and instruments in their possession. Collectors of vintage music gear are found not only in the US but in U.K, Japan and Western Europe as well, making the market a truly global one.

Some Important Names Of The Vintage Stuff

Mutron Bi phaser, Mutron Phaser II, EMU Proteas, Apt Holman Stereo Pre Amplifier, Technies SL 1300, Fisher Price Record Player, JVC Hi Fi turntable, 1968 Vintage Analog Electronic Drum Module, Vaccum Tube Bass Tone Generator, Voice of Music 726, Hammond A 100 B3, Hammond M 100, Panasonic SV 3200 DAT Deck, Wollensak 3M Stereo Reel to Reel Tape Deck, are some of the music gear of the yesteryears. Yahama, JVC, Panasonic, and Sony were some important manufactures.

So where do we get the Vintage Music Gear?

Rare and vintage stuff are generally quite hard to find. But in the modern world the Internet has made online shopping possible. There are a number of stores, both online and off line, which have a large collection of all these vintage music gear. You can order them in both secure and non secure mode of transaction. There are a number of safeguards also to look after the welfare of the buyer in terms of money back and other things.

There are some other sources like flea markets, various music sale or general auctions, classified advertisements, and dealers of mail order. The buyer has to remember some common features of the products. For example, he has to have some knowledge on the music gear he is planning to buy. It is better to deal only with renowned dealers because of the trustworthiness and the written certification of the transaction.

In the case of musical instruments and gear, unless the buyer knows what he is buying he might bear a loss no matter from where he buys. He needs to identify the gear properly and also ensure the originality of the gear he buys.

The market for musical instruments and vintage music gear has gone up considerably. From 1985 onwards, the prices are on a high. Some chased out models have reached sky high prices- as much as 1000 per cent or more from the original price. This fact should not deter the vintage collectors, as more often than not the prices are quite reasonable and affordable.
