    A friend of mine was offered a 4 year old Manley Dual Mono Block Mic Pre with low hours in pristine condition.

    What is a fair price for that unit?

    If it has a serial # of 10 or less.
    I'll outbid him at $110.
    and I'll pay the shipping to me.

    hmm...for 110.00 I'd probably be better off getting 110 one dollar bills, crumpling them up, putting them in a pile and lighting them on fire, then watching it burn. :w:

    curious jeff,

    I paid $1,200 for a dual mono manley pre w/ serial # 0001 about 4 years ago. I'll geuss that a used manley today might be in the $1,200 to $1,500 range depending on the condition. maybe miketholen has a line on one for $50. :roll:

    Heh-heh :D I love it when Mike gets into his Manley slams. I'd just like to watch when Eve Anna lays him out (she looks pretty tough). :roll: :roll: :w:

    Dan,

    The Dual Pre Manley I have says "Vacuum Tube Logic of America" on the faceplate and...has phantom power. It has a serial number under ten. When I bought it used, I called Manley and talked to Hutch. He sent me all the schematics they had. One had some hand written notes to help with this relic.

    Been loving it lately tracking rock guitars :)

    I have wondered, and will likely always wonder, why anyone in their right mind, with ears, occupied in the audio industry, making a living at doing anything useful in sound, can say: "I really like / want this Manley".
    Hearing tests and psychological examinations should be mandatory for such people!!

    Everything Manley I have ever heard or tried has sounded like crap to me.

    AMEN!!!!!!!
    I've had to keep my mouth shut!!!!
    for fear of having to try to explain to the thousands of idiots that bought that crap.
    plus Eve Anna doesn't like it when I talk about her "gear". :w:

    Considering that you can get a dual 60db mic pre brand spankin' new for $1,450 (move fast if you want one...Manley is about to have a pretty substantial price increase...they haven't raised prices in 10 years, they're do), I'd say the unit is probably worth a grand, maybe $1,100.

    Best of luck with what ever you decide to get.

    Hi Mike.From the Oxford Pocket Dictionary.(selected definitions that may be applicable here).
    ""vent" anus esp. of lower animal;
    also (give~to one's anger & c.,let it have free expression.
    Split in garment now esp. in back of coat."

    Well none of these apply to what I want to do.
    the only one I thought relevent was:
    "Small outlet or in let for air, smoke, &c.;"

    So I shall reply whilst "intaking" my mid morning "air, smoke, &c.;" tommorow morning.Remember that's Australian time for me.If you'd care to join me over a cup of coffee here, be good to see you.
    regards

    I paid $1300 for a used Manley dual Mono mic pre a couple of years ago. I'm really happy with it.
