    Just starting out and looking to get myself a pair of second hand techincs, just wondered if Gumtree is safe to buy from as heard it can be a bit dodgy? Anyone had any experience of buying from there, if not where is the best place to look?

    Thanks in advance

    Look for guides on the internet on how to properly check the pitches etc. Although to be honest the majority of 1210s are a bit out on their pitches at one end or the other now, just gotta make sure it's not major.
