Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.

A forum for discussing the pros & cons of buying a particular synth and for advice on buying synthesizers.

$1,000 less than the one on the previous page, but still ridiculous:


Another one without the Midi retrofit just went for half that.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

Aaaaand....still for sale. Don't worry, dude, you'll unload that pesky FB-01 someday. :roll:

Edit: This guy really loves the word "vintage".



316 bones for an old DMA yanked from its combo, and 140 for the speaker in a separate auction.

The same seller as the M64C in my previous post. About twice the usual price these seem to go for and I find the capitalisation and hyperbole disturbing.

I sold one of these in about the same condition for $400 in 2006.
