    sounds like it was stolen goods ripped off from a jamroom or something.

    Mostly unserialized and untraceable but still most likely stolen.

    Stolen was my first thought too, but the visual sound H20 pedal has a priority mail sticker on it with the guys name and address (from which I bought it). It was obviously his stuff, i just don't know why he wanted to get rid of all of it.

    Maybe? Have you noticed anything odd happening since you bought it?

    Didn't mean to rain on your parade. Congrats on the deal!
    Some of us have had "crates" of stuff ripped off before, so it just sounded a little too familiar.

    +1 on the crackhead idea. Not to sound like a genius. But that guy wanted to get rid of some stuff... or needed a fix.

    Yes, since the price of gasoline has skyrocketed, it is now officially cheaper to buy crack than to huff gas. Who knew that "unleaded" was going to be the new high-priced designer drug ....

    BTW --- congrats on the fantastic deal!
