MACKIE 808S STEREO -- RARE "Made in USA" 1200W Powered PA Mixer Board 808 20994


Regular price $550

Description
You're looking at a Mackie 808S 1200watt stereo powered PA mixer in great working and cosmetic condition, and it's MADE IN USA. They made these in the USA for a short time and then switched production to China--and you know what that means for quality control. Just look at the small text on rear near the serial number (picture below). I've sold several of these and most say "Made in China." Below the serial this one says "Made in USA." Definitely a big plus. Has built-in effects (reverbs, delays, chorus, gates). This is the stereo version of this PA--meaning you can pan instruments or voices left and right in your PA mix. So if you mic guitars or drums you can place them in a stereo mix, or just put different voices on different sides of the mix. You can also plug stereo sources into channels 7 and 8 and hear them in true stereo through the PA. (The "808M" version does not have a "Pan" knob and only allows for mono sources.) All 8 channels have been tested. Cosmetically, pretty clean. Only some minor use marks (see pics). All controls intact and working. It comes with power cable. I have sold and shipped several of these and know how to pack them right--SEE PICS AT BOTTOM SHOWING EXACTLY HOW I PACKED A PREVIOUS 808S!). Thanks for looking!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack equipment. I have a very high rate of successful shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
