My other ride is a Ninja
that is great you got one haha . you got yours before I got mine in fact I just emailed my ebay seller asking why it has not shipped yet io paid for it on the 9th and its now the 12th.I recognized a few of those items from photos you posted earlier in the year! Your shopping is all coming together really nicely.
Your photo of the POTC treasure chest cd player influenced me to buy a used one off eBay LOL. Thought about it and it just looked so nice. It arrived yesterday and very pleased. I have a pirates chest that I found in the toy dept at TJMaxx a few years back which I thought was decent looking but this POTC one blows that one away in looks. And love the heart! The cd/mp3/iphone input option on it is icing on the cake and will save me from setting up something else in that area of my haunt for audio. Will either burn background audio tracks to a cd and use it that way or run audio off another input device. I'm sure I never would have found this on my own if you hadn't shared, so thanks again . BTW if your chest came with a manual, can you let me know if it has a repeat function. No instructions with my used unit .
Has your chest arrived yet? Way heavier than I thought it would be and the sound quality is okay for the price. Wish it had more bass for deeper sounds like cannon fire but great for crickets and swamp sounds. Are you planning on using it for audio as well?
This is very cool thank you for sharing never would have thought up that idea . I want to try this for sureI just came across this little DIY I plan to use for showing off some of my oddities and antiquities in the Ominous Acquisitions shop. Thought you might find it useful for your own display items!
I for sure will post a pic for you my chest is on it way so soon as I get it I can post picks next to a wood chest I have for comparisonAwesome stuff you've acquired Saki. Sounds like a great theme. My biggest problem would be keeping to just one thing so this would be right up my alley. Best of both worlds! I have a make shift pirate ship and have the poison pirate ship sounds cd along with a couple others that I could actually use this year with that treasure chest. I'm terrible at judging size but reading the dimensions it seems on the small side. When you get it, anyway you could take a photo with something for size comparison? Would appreciate it and am looking forward to this thread.
A_Granger : Great idea with the microwave turntable. Gets my mind spinning with ideas as I'm thinking of replacing mine in the near future.
ya i got no manual with mineWish I would have stopped into Joann's last year when they had those bone candelabras. They'll make a great display. How many candles do they hold?
The chest....really?! I've been pretty lucky with my eBay purchases over the years. I was glad my shipping box didn't get dropped along the way and everything worked fine. The lid was a bit tricky to open on mine as it didn't pop open when I pressed the button on the "latch". Don't know if you got directions with yours or not but did you make sure the CD recorded portion was face down and that you selected "CD" and not "Line In" using the button on the front? Hopefully all works out for you in the end. If you do need to return it, I thought Amazon had a pretty good price on it if you were a Prime Member and could get it shipped free. I thought a lot of the ebay listings were kind of pricy by the time you factored in shipping. My used one didn't come with an original box but I saw that many still had them. Kind of wish I had the box to store it in.
I will have to give the input a try and seeGee are you sure you would be happy with a chest with no CD capability? Does the Input work so you can play from a mp3 etc.?
ITS actual very cool you should get one .Thanks for the picture. Size doesn't look too bad. Sorry to hear it wasn't working but at least you were partially refunded. Maybe with a little tinkering you can figure it out. Or as GOS said use the line in. Thinking about it but am trying to control my impulse
