There are things that happen in our lives that dictate sacrifices. I am about to do something I really do not want to do ...

... Sell my Sega Blast City cab.

Lets get the formalities out of the way.

-I am asking $2500 USD firm.

-I am not looking for trades for this. I say looking .. I may accept partial trades if you have something I am really looking for. I will discuss that later. With that said I am really looking for a cash sale.

-I will not ship or prep for shipping. This will be local pick-up or you send someone to my house to prep it for shipping. I will warn you now that I live in a rural area of Georgia and NAVIS and Beltmann will not come out to my house. last time someone used these companies to ship a cab from my house I had to load the cabinet onto a trailer and take it to a shipping station about 20 mins from my house.

*** ADDED A SHIPPING OPTION ON LAST POST ***

-The cab is located in Midway, GA (USA) which is about 30 mins south of Savannah, GA on I-95

-The cab is very clean and in great shape. Very little to no work needs done to it (depends on how picky you are)

***For the Price Police***
-You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that, however it will have no bearing on what I sell this cab for.
-Yep I totally understand there are cheaper cabs to be had .. go for it.
-Please understand I have money tied up in this and if I am going to sell it I really want to get what I have put into it.


Now smile and gander at the pictures in the posts below!

There is a small crack on the right side of the cab towards the back. It does not affect anything but I would be remiss not to mention it.

While the marquee lights up and is pretty. I need to point out that it is an LED fixture with an on/off switch and not the original one. The original one was damaged and needed replaced.

All buttons and sticks are Sanwa

This cab already has the Sega JAMMA harness installed along with CPS2 kick button cables. This will let you run just about anything as it also lets you switch between audio and power sources. It also has an internal 120v power connector. Without any other modifications to the cab I have ran Sega Naomi 1/2, Namco System 246/256, Sega ST-V, Taito Type X2, Neo Geo and quite afew other systems in it. Buttons 1-3 and sticks for both players are on the JAMMA harness and buttons 4-6 for both players are on the kick harness just like on the CPS2 systems kick harness.

I will not be including this in the sale but I used the JNX CPS2 converter with all of my systems to make them uniform and eliminate the need to constantly change out stuff for the kick harness connections.

There is a very descrete coin up button hidden on the p1 (left) side. This is wired into the coin mech of the cab. it's very convienient.

Currently the Sanwa sticks have octagon gates but I will include the original ones also.

Monitor

**DISCLAIMER**
While the monitor does look pretty good and operates very well (very playable) it does have an issue. It needs to have the factory OSD controls set back to default and the dynamic and static convergence needs to be adjusted. It mostly shows up on the bottom left corner. I have adjusted it via the monitor on-board OSD as much as I can .. but it's not perfect. I do believe it's a NANAO MS2931.

Speakers

So I learned a while back that with a little wiring harness that the speakers from a Sega Initial D-3 cabinet will fit without having to modify any of the cabinet itself as the speakers are the same shape and size and mount the same way.

So I managed to obtain an unused pair from Yaton

This was one of the speakers I pulled out of the cabinet .. they were both this bad.

More..

I will include this very cool Sega ashtray. Also as a note all of the locks on the cabinet are matched 5575 and comes with two keys.

I will also be including four (4) wood PCB mounting boards so you can quick swap systems in and out.

A Brook UFB for that whole cab? You've got yourself a deal. :P

In all seriousness, though, you're making me consider dropping the cash on this one. I'd LOVE a CRT cab just for the ease of connecting JAMMA boards.

Ok quick update as so far most of the messages (oddly mostly outside this forum) have been the same thing..

1) Generally if something is sold I am pretty good about marking it as sold. So no need sending me messages asking if it's still available or sold yet.

2) I am sorry, but I am not flexible on the price on this. Normally I would be willing to wheel and deal or be generally flexible on the price of what I am selling. This is not one of those times.

3) I might be open to shipping. However I really don't want to be responsible for palletizing it and trying to get off work to meet the shipper, or loading it in a trailer to take it to the shipping depot. I would rather you come see and play the cab before it gets moved. That way when it gets to point "B" and something doesn't work it would be understood that it wasn't my fault. With that said .. money can be a good motivator.

Also as a note I'm going to make it an A-P only posting until Saturday then I will list the same listing on other forums and Facebook.

OK so it's Saturday and I went ahead and listed on about five other forums. Later this afternoon/evening I will also post it on a bunch of facebook groups.

I think it would be a good idea to show a picture of the monitor chassis. These cabs are notorious for developing issues with the monitor and the infamous "black goop" issue. AO has a good thread on it: https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic.php?t=2325

A picture showing no black goop would be good to put people's minds at ease.

True, but this doesn’t mean it won’t cause other issues.

If the 'goop' that everyone is seeing is the potting epoxy it would be non-conductive. Apparently when the insulation or epoxy breaks down it will lead to overheated windings, arcing or short circuits, which kill the flyback or components nearby.

The potting compound is from the horizontal linearity coil, so it should not affect anything with the flyback like shorted or overheated windings or arcing.

To anyone with hesitation on getting this cab, dont, I know @Dreygor personally and can vouch that whatever he is stating about it is 100%. The man takes care of his stuff and is meticulous about wiring stuff properly. I would have zero concerns about buying this cab from him.

I disagree, I've seen problems arise from black goop leakage. it all depends on where and how it seeps.

Oh well GLWTS, OP.

My $.02 is your both good people. I don't think disagreeing with someone's opinion deserves a dislike @opt2not in the first place. I would just reply and voice your disagreement. I dislike the dislikes..

And @benime is a good dude who sold his CAVE collection to help his dog live a couple months longer.. If that doesn't show character what does?..

Why don't you both remove the dislikes from each others posts and hash out the technical disagreements through forum replies instead??
