    Hi

    I have old Tektronix all-tube oscilloscope for sale - with a cart & extra plug-in input units plus a drawer for accessories ( a place for bread and "thingies" )
    At the time it was new it costed more than two rooms + kitchen in ANY downtown - today I am happy if somebody gives me 100,- and hauls it away ...

    So back to subject - its is NOT my tube oscilloscope. GAD - interested ??? - anybody ????

    Cheers - it is Friday night here

    So it seems this item isn't a musical instrument or music reproduction item.
    3) Does it require electricity?
    Sorry I missed this one.

    "Music" is comprised of pitch, rythym, dynamics, tibre, etc., so I consider a plastic bucket thumped in time to be a "musical sound" as do many street performers in NYC.

    No

    Bear in mind that you should consider me the Genie here, and I will answer all questions quite literally when its in my best interest to do so. To be fair, I will also answer truthfully and will reveal when someone nails it, which I'm sure will happen soon enough.

    My interest in analog 'scopes goes back only to the Tektronix 2000 series and I've already got a 2465A. I've also got a 2211 that I love but the tube got whacked in transit and it sill cost more to replace the tube than to just buy another. Thanks, though!

    Saaweeeeettt! I have a Marantz 2252B that was my main rig, now delegated to tuner duty.

    Had it cleaned and all bulbs replaced, and it sure is pretty when powered up.

    As for the last, there are two questions there. I'll say simply that it will get ruined if left in the rain.
    Can your new thing be an inside thing or an outside thing as long as its tenure as an outside thing is done while it is not raining?

    As the answer to the second question (re: muscles needed for unloading thing) is "yes", that you could unload it yourself without need of assistance from additional muscles, how much can you bench press?
