I do my best to provide

My goal is to earn your repeated patronage with reliable equipment to have you as a long term customer.

For details check “Lot”and "Condition" designation at the bottom of each item's description. It is for you to know exactly what you are purchasing. All equipment will be in the exact condition as described, unless damaged in shipment.

Feel invited to ask me any question you might have regarding any item in as much detail as you like.

Green Bussiness Policy:

I have recycled all my life simply because it makes sense: Nature operates in cycles. What goes arround comes arround. All comes from the earth and ALL needs to get back to it, to degrade to it's elements - to once again emerge. This is the cycle of life! The way we modern people live on this earth currently simply does NOT make sense and will not be sustainable in the long run. I believe that bussiness practisses, instead of focussing on growth, need to consider sustainability of life as their first priority, to preserve this place were we live for the life of fututre generations.

It is my commitment to you and to future generations, that with my bussines I will leave a biological foot print as small as possible to contribute to, and promote sustainability.

As a matter of fact my bussines is a recycling bussiness: I sell more than 95% previously owned products that are restored for another life time of service, to last as long as possible, preventing waste and unecessary destruction of Nature as much as possible. And: The remaining 5% of items I sell are: parts, services and products that help extend the life of existing equipment.

All packing materials I use for shipping are recycled and have been used previously.
When there is equipment that cannot be restored, I take it apart and recycle all usable parts. What cannot be used, I take apart into basic components to recycle metal and plastic separately with my local recycling center. Toxic components I bring down to toxic waste. I pride myself with having the emptiest garbage can in the nation! So please be ashured that if you donate your old audio equipment to me, that it will get recycled to the highest degree possible!
I also avoid unecessay paper work, as much as possible - for example your invoices are sent by e-mail and not in paper form.

I would like to encourage you to take extra efforts in your daily decisions and actions to find the intergrity in your own life to make this "Here and Now" the best place it can be. The happyness you bring into your own life, when sharred with others, is what brings blossoms to all.

Feel free to also make suggestion on how I can further improve what you experience with me.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Marc RisingStar

Sales are Pre Pay for any items shipped. Excelent references availble - furbished on request.

PAYPAL only if shipping to your paypal verified address and if I can ship with a shipping company which issues on-line trackable delivery information. Paypal requires me to ship to Paypal verified addresses only. If not providing a Paypal verified address with your payment, I may refuse your payment and may ask you to pay via one of the alternate payment methods. I prefer payment by US postal services money order. Paid goods will usually ship within 1 business day, but the latest within 2 business days after your payment posted to my account. I will do what I possibly can do, to ship your item within 24 hours after payment (Most items paid for on a business day before 2:30 PM PST will ship the same day). Items paid by personal checks (issued in US$), will be shipped the 11th business day after deposit, due to the time lag in processing and inter bank communication in the event of a check returned due to insufficient funds. Items paid by check / money order issued in other currencies than US$ usually take about 30 Days to clear! - Item will ship after payment cleared)
For all items shipped I will e-mail a shipment confirmation, which unless it is not issued by the shipping company, will include the tracking number for your packakge.

Packing: I will make all attempts, to keep your shipping cost to the lowest amount possible and use whenever possible recycled quality shipping materials. For most items I do not have a handling charge, although packing often takes hours of time for the quality jobs, that I do provide. I usually charge very close to what I have to pay out for shipping, but may add a slighgt nominal fee to compensate for the purchase of packing materieals, such as packing tape or wrapping materials and for gas to drive up to tthe post office or shipping company. You will get a high quality packing job at the lowest cost possible.
I will do whatever is possible and feasible to pack any item I ship properly to my high standards of quality with a lot of care and attention to detail. (About 15 years of equipment shipment experience; every single shipment arrived in perfect condition! - keyword: double box and/or well cushioned packing).

Any shipping charges are non-refundable. Shipping to PO Boxes can be handeled only via USPS services. Please indicate if you need shipment to a PO box with your availability request.
Shipping services are via
UPS, FedEx Ground or USPS. UPS or FedEx shipments may, but not necessarily will - add up to a couple of days processing time for your shipment, as the next staffed shipper customer counters are about 25 miles away from here)

I will notify you upon shipment by e-mail with your shipment confirmation and tracking / delivery cnfirmation number (if shipped with a trackable service). This e-mail will be sent the night of the day your item shipped. For personal checks, I will also e-mail you when your payment has arrived.

Equipment Dontations:

Gladly accepted for audio and music equipment made before 1984. I gladly accept parts and non working / working units to pull parts form as well. If donating the equipment plus donating the cost to ship it out to here: Please ship to: PO Box 2234 Paradise, California 95969. It will be much appreciated! And: THANK YOU!
If wishing to get re-imbursment for shipping, need a receipt, or for me to come out to pick it up: I need to approve of your donation first before I can accept it. For that please include all of the detail information, that apply for "Equipment Offers" below and particularly care to include item # 2B).

Equipment Offers:

With inclusion of your asking price and detail information I am glad to consider equipment offered to me. If unsure about your asking price: I will be glad to provide value estimation services billed at my regular shop rate which can be ordered HERE. or read below.

TO CONSIDER offered equipment form you, I need 5 items:

1A) Type of Equipment (For example: "reel to reel deck") 1B) The exact Make and Model number (revision number, chassis number,serial number etc., IF availalbe)

2) Most Important: Your asking price (without it: no response). As to prices at which I can buy: Please keep in mind, that I buy all equipment at wholesale prices in "AS-IS" condition. All equipment I sell, I carefully refurbish in every aspect REGARDLESS of working condition. My restoration work aims to perform as close as possible to original specifications, which requires to replace aged and out of tolerance parts and components (often very hard to find!), which is time involved and expensive. Thus I can pay at the very maximum of 1/3 of the possibly highest retail sales price, which unfortunatly needs to include any shipping costs as well to get all of the offered items to here (USA, northern California, 95969). If my total cost is higher than my theshold, I can't buy, as too expensive for me. In this regard I pay fair prices and will do ALL I can to be fair to you!
If unsure about your asking price: "Garage Sale Prices" are what I have been able to pay and prefer. I invite you to carefully consider how much this equipment in it's current condition (decades old, likely not fully working - not refurbished!) is worth to YOU(!) - right now. How much would you spend to buy this equipment that you are selling?
I will gladly answer every offer that includes your asking price with one clear YES or NO, but again: if your asking price is higher than what I can pay: I won't haggle nor bicker: I simply may not be your buyer.

2B) If expecting to get re-imoursed for shipping: My shipping cost of the item to California 95969. (Or at least: exact physical size and weight information for each item, plus your ship-form ZIP code.)

Item Description:

3)What parts / accesories are included or missing / damaged? Any owners manuals / service manuals / original boxes, vacum tubes, spare parts, etc. are included?

4A) Physical condition: Any missing / damaged parts or accessoires? Corrosion, Cracks, Blemishes, Dents, Deformations, Decolorations, Tears, Rust., ETC.?
4B): Working Condition. Please skip to yelow writing below, if not known, or describe if known: Working in all apsects? - What is not fully working? What symptoms? If defective: not a problem, but I would like to know what the defects are.
If working condition is not known, simply state "unknown". Please do NOT plug unknown equipment and items that have not been used for some time, or that use vaccum tubes into power, as damage and / or hazzardous situations may be provoked! Equipment is worth more to me untested, than damaged! Even a "quick" test can damage equipment and render it worthless! - I usually thoroughly pre-test each and every piece of equipment without power and carefully with test equipment. If ALL pre-tests pass, then I apply controled power very slowly and carefully monitored with a variac! So: Please don't plug in!

5) All offered items must be owned by you, verifyable. I cooperate with law enforcement agencies.

Equipment Trades:

If you want to invite me to trade in a pice of equipment that you own for something you desire to have (including services) from this web site: Please send me an inquiry and be as descriptive as possible by including all of the details that I need:
A) A description of your item, including exact model number, condition and included accessories; Then
B) Which item /. service you are interested in to receive; And:
C) Your expectations in regards to trade in value for your item.

For the description of your item please include all details outlined in above "Equipment Offers"

The logistics: Once we have come to a possible agreement that the trade / trade-in may be mutually beneficial: I expect to talk to you on the telephone to finalize the details, before the trade will take place.

I also will e-mail you your shipment confirmation and tracking number, or contact within 48 hours (or less) after receipt of your item; should there be any problem. Should I need to decide, that you misrepresented the item I received from you: I expect to be able, within 5 business days after receipt, to return the item to you.

Shipping costs for the item you traded for, do not apply, as you pay for the shipment you ship to me and I will pay shipment of the package I ship to you, unless we negotiate a different agreement.
