A Musser rosewood key four octave marimba, with cases.  It seemed the right thing to do at the time, and it probably was, but still....

What do I use to open that?

You on your phone?  It opened right up on mine.

OK got it on phone.  That better not be the one because it was never that beat up.

I regret selling my soul to the devil to pursue my addiction for better audio!

 

...on second thought, I don't regret that...

25 years ago I gave a pair of Heresy to a good friend of mine as a wedding present. He still has the speakers and the wife, I guess it worked out in the end.

Musical Fidelity A308CR preamp, sold to replace it with a their TOTL special edition KWP preamp.  This was a $12K preamp and a lateral move.  Sold the KWP and bought another A308 plus matching amp.  Will never sell these components. 

 

I also sold my first house to please my ex.  Got divorced, rented a house in the same neighborhood and told the owner of my old house I wanted it back.  Bought it back 9 months later.  :D

Pair of MC 30's that I originally purchased for 50 dollars each.  A buddy of mine picked up 4 Mc 30s for 200 bucks at some sort of surplus store, and sold me two of them. I used them for years and for some stupid reason I sold them to buy a solid state amp. I have learned my lesson. As much as I move things in and out of my system, I do not sell the McIntosh equipment!

I also sold a nighthawk 650 that I managed to buy in 1995 for 3-400 with 1200 miles. Beautiful blue bike in mint condition.

I was riding it down 237 in Santa Clara CA when a side cover flew away.

Then a week later while riding it, I spotted that side cover - stopped on the left shoulder, walked back 1000 ft and picked it up - nearly intact with just a teeny bit of rash.

Sold it to a close friend, had 6-7k on it and he parked it for years - moved it to NJ from CA and back to CA. And sold it hardly ever riding it.

 

I also sold a GS500 I had owned for 10 yrs and 40K miles and with 48k miles I sold it in a moment of "brokenness". Had lindemann FE that I didn't even get to open and "discover" their secrets. But that FE handled like no other GS I have ridden (till I slapped a katana FE on them a couple yrs later).

 

I have also handed a lot of remorse to people I bought/traded stuff with, usually in the general arena of "I'll fix your busted amp if you'd pay me with that other busted amp" and I have fixed both ... or in some cases fixed theirs and parted mine out for more $$$.

 

To me $$$ regrets are minor. I don't consider selling something for $5 when it was worth $10 something to crow about. It has to be worth 10X atleast.

 

Cool.

Srinath.
