  • What do you guys think about refurbished gear?

    Looking at getting a new recording interface and the savings of getting a manufacturer refurbished unit is really tempting me.



    All gear is different.. there are some things i absolutely want brand new and there are many things that i wouldn't mind getting refurbished at a cheaper price..



    heck.. most pedals i buy are used and abused.



    just curious about your general feelings on the issue.

                interesting ideas fellas. The unit im looking at comes from an authorized dealer and has a 1 year warranty with it.. Cant really see a bad side if i can save a couple of bucks. It's not like i would be using it everyday to make a living so if it breaks and i have to send it out, it wouldnt be a big issue.

                            If you thinnk about it, refurbed gear (from the manufacturer - not a simple rebox at the store) probably undergoes more intensive, individualized QC than a standard off-the-shelf unit.
