I have a story that might bring you a chuckle or two :D

Last fall when I upgraded from a DS61 to a DS88 I bought a second Onstage two tier Z stand but never used the second tier.

This week I picked up a Behringer Neutron and wanted to use the second tier.

That's when I discovered a factory defect. A securing nut on the bracket for the second tier was not properly tack welded. We're talking about an 8" metal part here.

First thing I did was contact Onstage for a replacement part. They directed me to their Canadian distributor.

Long story short they shipped to me a complete new two tier Z stand to replace a $10 part that could be repaired in 10 seconds in a welding shop!!!!

I now own no less than THREE two tier Z-stands and have no idea what to do with the third.

I guess I'll find a welder and sell it on craigslist :D :D :D

I LOVE CAPITALISM!!! :D:D:D

Does that mean you have $90 burning a hole in your pocket (as my ole Dad used to almost say) as you eye up even more kit ?

Nope. What it means is that I bought the original stand brand new for only $50 :D:D:D

PS, and I bought new kit two weeks ago. I picked up a Behringer Neutron... :)

You could do with the sort if logic about money that my Wife has.

She sees something in a sale for £60 and its pre sale price was £100, by her logic since she has saved £40 on the buy she therefore has £40 to spend on whatever she wants.

My philosophy is spend it before I kick the bucket and leave it to my greedy relatives....

How to die and be remembered?
