How much should I sell my little phatty for...

Post by ex_action_figure » Tue Mar 17, 2009 7:35 pm

I can't search ebay used auctions because I owe them like $60 for something sold a while ago.
I am going to sell my little phatty (stage edition few months old w/box and everything it comes with new) because I only use it to mess around on and never on any of my tracks it's an awesome synth and sounds great but that analog monosynth moogy tone doesn't really fit into the music I make I'd like to keep it but I'm a musician first and a synth collector second so unless I am using it to make music I really can't afford to hold on to it.
I need a full featured digital synth. I'd like to get a virus indigo I or II or C rack but I have no idea if I would have enough from selling my Moog I wont have any extra money to put towards a new synth because I was just laid off so I need to make sure I can sell it for enough to buy a virus or something similar.

anyone have any idea?

Sorry to hear about your layoff, that sucks! :(
I did a quick search of completed listings and they were selling for anywhere between $750us and $900us.
Why don't you try listing here in the Gear for Sale forum?
also, take care of that outstanding bill at ebay! [-X

Used but mint Moog LPs are selling for between $750-$900. Virus Indigos have been selling for around $700-$850, Virus Cs $800-$900. Indigo 2s maybe $1000-$1200, I'm trying to sell my Moog Little Phatty as well. I'm asking $825 with not much luck. I also have it on Ebay for $875. Lots of watchers, no buyers yet :evil:

I'm interested in it, but I'm not sure I can afford the 'going price' as posted above. I had made an offer but then I thought, it's a bit low, so I deleted my post.

There's quite a few LPs out there for sale, that makes it a buyer's market. One sold here in Boston off C.L. recently for $650 with the factory hard case.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

$650 is stupid! I mean who ever bought that got a h**l of a deal that's pretty much half off.

More realistically seems to be around $800..I wonder if I could get a decent virus for that price.

after doing some research and picking out the synth I want to replace it with I decided that I am willing to let it go for $750..I know I could get a bit more for it but I'd rather sell it quicker and get my new synth quicker.

I'll post a proper add for it in the for sale forum when I take pictures of it (if not this weekend then I will take pics on Monday)

If anyone is interested then let me know

thanks

-Matt
