Hi from Barabba
« on: October 20, 2012, 08:08:35 AM »
Hello Bruno and hello to all the forum, I'm really glad you accepted my registration.
I am an operator of video games in bars and game room for about 25 years, as well as a collector of lasergame stuff.
I have a lot of arcade stuff, equipment for repairs and spare parts for several pcb from the 80s to today. I hope I can give you some help in this wonderful forum.

In Italy there is a lot of Zaccaria stuff, the problem is that those who have the spare parts, complete cabs etc.etc., wants a lot of money even for little things.
The only way to get a good deal is to try to find old operators who were unwilling to make the effort, or time, to throw it all in the garbage and go to empty the warehouse.
Personally, in this way I was able to do good business. Of course, in this way it also takes a lot of trash to throw away.

Yes, I have so much arcade material, I have a warehouse full of cab, mostly jamma ready, touchscreen like Photoplay & Silverball and, of course, lasergame cab.

Matteo (italiandoh) knows me, Igor (igorstellar) too.

The Italian market for video games is very different from the European or American market. Until the early 90's there were several original cab, then because the costs were too high, our operators, we decided to build universal cab, the famous Jamma cab to hold the price of the full game and be able to change at will, only pcb.
