This instrument is for sale: 2000.00 and can be seen in the Dallas area. This frame but with silver bars tuned to A442 and M55 arched resonators. I don't have a photo of it with those features but they are both in "new" condition. The frame has many excellent features. If interested, email me with your phone number and I'll call you to discuss the features in detail. The instrument does not belong to me - I'm selling it for a music school who no longer needs it because they have not had any vibe students (imagine that).

You're not joking about the frame having many excellent features, are you available for skype chat to talk about it?

Here's a recent picture of the instrument with the arched resonators and silver bars.

Hi John,
I've sended you two mails about this vibe, telling i'll buy it if you're OK to sell it to me.
I'm needing a new vibe, because mine is old, shaky, A444, and without graduated bars ; and second hand vibes are a rarity here in France. Just tell me the conditions - price for shipping, how to pay (Paypal, Mastercard...).
Anyway, it looks VERY good, and i'm shure it sounds great (and i dig the silver bar's sound)
Hoping not being too late....

This vibe was made about 5 years after the "Piper Vibe".

John, what would be the difference between this and the Piper Flyer that you designed?

I've emailed you a few times and each time they come back to me "rejected" by your server as spam.Can you do something about that? I got your emails but I can't seem to reply.

I'm back from a gig.I received your answer saying you advised the school and you was thinking how to send the vibe, then it worked fine at least one time. I checked my mail box and your e-mail isn't on spam list. I've just sended you by mail my others e-mails adresses, hoping one is going to work. If not, let me know here.
Here it's 8:00 p.m now. I'm going to check the site and the shout box every 30 mn till 23:00 (3 hours from now). And tomorrow I'll stay home the whole day, with the active till being able to communicate with you. Let's see if something is going to work.
Other solution : using a friend's mail for transfering our messages...
Internet mysteries...

Man I wish it were mine.
So close to me and it goes across the Atlantic.
Had I not just bought the MalletKat .... dang it.
If you know of a school looking to trade a used Musser M48 or M55... I'm game for it

If it can bring you some consolation, I missed here a M55 last year for 1 week. The guy who bought it was going to travel with it to the USA...! other Atlantic crossing ! Reading the posts it seems that there is some market with second hand vibes in the US, but here this M55 was the only one for decades...
Anyway, good luck for the next time !
