Blemished?

Blemished?

Nope, I am not talking about somebody’s face, it’s just that I found it quite amusing to visit an online music store and see the word “blemished”. The items marked with such a word are priced lower than the brand new counterpart. So it actually means used or second-hand item. But blemished? Oh well.

Come to think of it, music gear can be pricey sometimes. For instance, a brand new signature guitar, amplifier, multi-effects processor and other sound equipment are often not within one’s budget. Those looking for a more affordable price, whether it’s a classic boss gt multi-effects pedal or a Dave Smith keyboard synth, can opt for a used counterpart to save up. Yup, those on a budget might prefer buying a slightly-used version of an expensive music gear. As long as the sound quality is the same, it doesn’t really matter if it’s “blemished” after all.
