  • SCSIforSAMPLERS is no more. :(

    Just went to www.scsiforsamplers.com and it now goes to www.MPCstuff.com.

    Weird. No notice, no blowout, no nothing. I was JUST on the website January 10th - 2 days ago! I had left a message with J.D. a week or so ago looking for some parts and never heard back (which was odd). Now I know why.

    R.I.P. www.scsiforsamplers.com

    on a whim, I just checked the WHOIS registry. I wondered if JD forgot to renew... He hadn't.

      This is bad news. Was thinking of grabbing an external card reader for my mpc 3k and now I'm stumped. They made the readers and the install kits. Don't know where to go now.

        exactly my feelings with my electone's proprietary floppy drive. what will happen in 10 year's time if no more parts are available?

          I'd normally say, call JD directly and ask if he has parts left or could point you in the direction of where to get them. But I left him a message last week and I didn't get a call back - that has never happened before. Even when he stopped selling gear in the past, he retained his website. This is kinda weird to be honest.

                It is important to note that the ebay "SCSI4Samplers" is not JD's company but rather (according to J.D.) someone who figured out they could steal his company's name and operate on ebay. I don't know anything about this ebay character but out of principal I won't do business with him.

                  and the fact they have none of the product that anyone would have wanted from the actual company.

                    UPDATE: We heard from JD on KorgForums. MPCStuff bought him out. On the plus side, JD said that he was still willing to help people out and could be reached at keyman@tampabay.rr.com. I don't know if MPCstuff bought out his inventory (I doubt it since they don't sell any of it or anything remotely useful to synth people) so JD probably still has stuff. If you need any of the stuff he had before, it'd be a good idea to contact him and see what he has left. But TechEverlasting is right. SCSIforSamplers on ebay was just some schmuck who stole his name.

                    Again, R.I.P. SCSIforSamplers You will be missed. But hopefully JD will continue to support the synth community through some other venue. If you need something, shoot him an email...

                      This is so awful... Why would MPCStuff have any interest in buying him out? Or they going to carry similar items?

                        NO idea. I think they just wanted the additional web traffic. But as soon as one of us gets to their site, it takes all of about 5 seconds to realize they don't have anything ANYBODY wants. I don't think they bought his inventory, just the URL. I'd just email JD and ask for whatever you're looking for. Even if he doesn't sell it, he's very helpful and will probably point you in the right direction. He had some pretty famous customers. I wonder what they'll think when they end up on MPCstuff.

                        Again. big F U to MPCStuff and R.I.P SCSIforSamplers.

                          I wonder if anything would prevent him from starting up under a new name and continuing business later in the future. It's an interesting situation.

                          @McHale - Thanks for the info about the Ebay Seller I posted above. I had no idea that was not legit. Wow! A complete ripoff of the name indeed.
