MEGA-SALE #9 is FINISHED
IT WAS THE VERY LAST MEGASALE!!!
You are welcome to email an order and if more become available (cancelled orders or new stock) I will notify you to confirm your order. The order email MUST be like a real order, see below for details.
6582 (6582A) SIDs are just like 8580 SIDs and not like 6581 SIDs. They have the filter that works best for the MB-SID V2 Bassline mode, low noise, less bugs. Look elsewhere for whether 6582/8580 is better/worse than 6581.
I use eight of them in my MB-6582 MB-SID V2 Synth, but you already knew that.
6582A SIDs cost $30 AUD (approx. $21 USD, 16 EUR) each plus postage and handling fees.
I add up the exact cost of SIDs and postage in Australian dollars, and then multiply by 1.0351966873706 to add the PayPal handling fee.
Postage will be calculated as the actual cost to post, plus packaging. The PayPal invoice will include the handling fee in the postage amount. Most of the time, postage will be $6.15 AUD for an airmail letter. If you are ordering more than 8 SIDs, I might choose to upgrade the postage to an insured parcel, where available. Large orders (16+ SIDs) are shipped with Registered Post International ($23.15 AUD).
All SIDs I sell are tested before packing to ensure the oscillators and filter work. These chips are new-old-stock, not pulls from Commodore 64, and are unused when sold, with absolutely no long term guarantee. However, considering these chips have been safely tucked away in antstatic tubes for 15 years, they are less likely to fail than one you find in Commodore 64 that has been power cycled thousands of times and been alternately cooked and frozen in a garage etc. From my experience, after testing over two thousand 6582 SIDs, only 3 were found dead. After salvaging about eight 6581s, all were found to have dead filters or dead oscillators.
If you find any chips faulty through initial testing with hardware that is known to work, I might allow you to return them and get a refund or replacement if possible. As these are the last few remaining 6582 SIDs, replacement might not be possible.
