We have all heard the saying
"It sounds too good to be true"
I get calls all the time from people asking me that.
Why is the price so low for such a high quality instrument?
There are 2 reasons for that.
1. I buy discontinued stock at a very low price.
It is called "new old stock"
because it has never been sold.
That is why there is no information on the net.
2. I buy large quantity from my suppliers.
I have to buy everything they have of one
model to get the lowest price.

I pay low prices and pass the savings to my customers.
