... my hubby and I and our 3 children and their spouses had a garage sale on Saturday.

During our set-up we exchanged soooo... many items from one to another, chairs, leather satchel, hassock, drinking glasses, etc.  LOL!!  I even let a neighbor who bought our old house "borrow"  a cool tin waste basket that has been in our family since the 1960's.  We did eventually sell quite a bit but, the best part is clearing out stuff!!  When ever I say stuff I think of the commercial where the people buy containers to organize their stuff, but then when all organized need more stuff!! 

Anyway ... AND THEN of all things, this contraption fell into my hands:

I am not sure exactly what it is or does but thought it might help me some day.  

Does anyone use one of these?

Yup, sure do use those, Schaick.  I have a couple mixing boards, one of them a close cousin to that one, same manufacturer different model.

One simple use for them, with recording, is you can run a mic or some types of pickup through it and have at least a volume and some eq control before running it to the computer.  

Also handy if you want to run several microphones or instruments through an amplifier and speakers for a gig or jam.  It allows you to set the volume and eq on all the mics/instruments how you want them.

Nice little piece of gear.  Not essential for the average violinist recording just one instrument or whatever, but very nice for having some deluxe options.

Good score!
