Hi,
I am thinking of geting a used Tb6 monitor. Used... yes. Because I don't really want to spend
15.000? for a new Tb6 monitor. (Sachtler sells the monitor here in Germany)

I'm quite happy with my Transvideo but I'd like to get a "new" one.
So I was playing with the idea of the Tb6. It is a great pice of equipment.

Maybe I will buy it during the summer/autum 2009

Does anybody have the price of a used one??

Thanks and happy new year
Henry

Henry,

Used TB-6s are still rare so they command a premium. It will likely be a situation where you'll need to watch the forums regularly and eventually one will pop up and you will have to act immediately (versus saying "I will buy in September, etc"). The fact they are so rarely separated from their owners is testimony to how amazing they are - even though they were introduced ten years ago.

Alec,
thank you for your answer!
You are right, maybe it is a bit foolish to say "I will buy it in September".

I guess I have to leave my eyes open (esp. here in the Steadicamforum).
Otherwise I will have to buy the new one, wich probably will make me happy for the next 10 years.
