Guys, I'm in the process of making a control panel to use with Midway Arcade Classics 2 as well as the Street Fighter and Tekken series on my new PS2. The buttons and j/sticks are on the way but I've hit one small snag...

I have to locate a pair of old/unused playstation one game controllers. Here in Trinidad it's kinda difficult to come by. I thought before I hit some of the retail outlets on the net, I'd tackle you guys. I'd really rather not purchase a pair just to tear them apart. Would any of you happen to have a no-longer-in-use pair that you can part with?

My first suggestion is to Ebay a few(is that normal in Trinidad? someone will surely ship internationally-ask first).

Secondly, I think I've got a regular one, a dual shock, and a multitap I think I won in an auction with my Dreamcast Agetec stick a year ago (incredible friggin' joystick, btw). Email/message me and maybe we can work something out.

Getting it from Ebay is not so much a problem... that's the last resort. I have a third dual shock but I can't use those because the pads in those controllers don't allow for soldering directly to the switches on the copper board. The switches are contacted via a plastic ribbon which is connected to the controller. The old style PS1 controllers made for easier adaptation.
Thanks for the offer though... I'll check back with you if I find I have to...
