New (to me) Rane parametric EQ...

I was at a thrift shop today and saw a huge rack with this, a DBX 160A Comp/limiter, and some other fairly highend stuff.. I thought, WTF is this doing in here!!?

I talked to the guy and it turned out that the music store across the street donated it. Not a bad score for $50. They want $160 for the DBX, which is also a good deal since it costs about $430 new. They both look to be in excellent condition.

This thrift shop takes donations and the stuff they sell goes to charity. So, I'd imagine the music store gets to write the value of the equipment off on taxes.
