WEM Nightshade - how much would I pay for one?

Postby Youdontsparkle » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:36 pm

Hi there. I was wondering how much a WEM Nightshade would set me back. I’ve heard that they are very rare, but before I set off on a hunt for one, i thought I’d better check I had any chance of affording one! Anyone got any idea?

Hi, I have one, in excellent fully working condition. How much do you want to give me for it!?

The question is, are you a musician or a collector?

A collector would probably pay considerably more than a musician would, just to make to get this rare piece of equipment.

A musician probably wouldn't pay all that much as the Nightshade probably isn't the most versatile synthesiser ever made and there are better options around these days.

Never seen one of those for sale though.

EDIT: Not quite true, I actually saw one that sold for roughly 400 UKP in VEMIA, some 12 years ago -- no idea how much the price it would fetch has evolved since.
