Title: Audio Technica RAFFLE:::::::::::: AND THE WINNER IS. . . .
Post by: whiskeyjack on June 21, 2006, 10:38:39 PM
For a wireless system, this thing reproduces the sound of an acoustic guitar pretty well. It works well with just about any onboard pickup system. I've used it through and LR Baggs IBeam Active and a K&K Pure Western. I bought this used as an experiment just to see what wireless sounds like. 'Ain't bad.

Here's the specs:[/u]

Audio-Technica's ATW-201 professional VHF wireless system includes an ATW-R200 receiver, ATW-T201 transmitter, and Hi-Z instrument cable. The ATW-R200 receiver design features an innovative docking power supply configuration. An AC power adapter housed in a compartment in the receiver uses an IEC-standard detachable power cordset. Furthering its flexibility, the power adapter may be easily removed from the receiver case, permitting its use as a conventional in-line AC adapter. A novel dipole antenna system on the receiver improves operation by providing a ground element in addition to the usual signal element.

Here's the Fine Print


1) All raffle entrants must post to this thread by 10:00 PM (2200 hours) Central Time, Monday, June 26 to be eligible
for the drawing;
2) Winner agrees to make an appropriate monetary donation to this forum and to post here when it is made;
4) Winner of this raffle also agrees to pay actual shipping costs which can be discussed;
5) This item will ship to CONUS (lower 48 states) only.
6) Please: do not enter if you represent a retail music business.

Because of my distaste for selling on ebay, (expensive and awkward), I'd rather encourage participation in this forum by raffling off excess musical stuff valued at under $50 with the understaning that the winner makes a contribution to the Larrivee Forum. - It's much more trouble to sell cheap stuff on ebay than it's worth in the end imo. - I'd rather make an effort to promote a forum that supports the Larrivee Family's line of instruments rather than mess with this stuff on ebay.

Tell your friends to post ^_^

Alll Done!!  The names of all entrants were written down on equal-sized strips of paper and placed in a Martin guitar case.  The case was then drop-kicked off the bed of my pickup truck to mix up the entries.  A selection was then made by opening the case and blindly reaching in to feel for the first strip of paper.

Dove is the winner!!

Cowgirlie is second runner up

Mrkrgr is fourth

Rock 'n roll is third

parsky1 is fifth

RandyR is sixth

Thank you all for partipsiating.   I really enjoy this kinda' thing and wish more of us would do it on this forum.  A lot of us have got too much stuff laying around that gets used once in seven years if at all.

Dove: I've emailed you.  You must contact me ASAP or the order of runner-ups kicks in and you lose.  (I think 48 hours is reasonable).
