If you are looking to sell, definitely don't go with the values on ebay they are totally outrageous and you will just sit on your synths for a long time.

Why not sell them at best offer? At least you will see what people are willing to pay for them.

The location and general state of the synths are also important to judge its value. Not that many people will bid on a rare synth located in Russia, or a dusty & rusty synth sold in the same city.

You could try your luck on the "Gear for sale" section of this forum:

Available for sale:
-Chamber of Sounds Jupiter III (mk1) & Jupiter T (mk1)
-The Complete DX7- Howard Massey (with original enclosed sounds on soft disks)

roland promars 1200- 2000
roland juno60 500-750
oberheim obxa 2000ish

These are price ranges and are not set in stone. There's give and take for the most part on everything especially synths. I wont even go into condition issues either. These are "real" prices and not ebay bullshit either.

I think you'd have to be really lucky to get a Juno 60 for that kind of money. I know some find one for 300 beans in a thrift store, but otherwise, they're much closer to 900-1000, at least around here it seems.

Paying that much for one is dumb. Thats closer to ebay "prices." I've seen several in the recent history both here and via my local c list go for that price range. I wouldn't even pay 500 for one, but thats me. Same with the juno 106, for some reason people want 500+ for that POS.

Forget everybody about 300-500$ for Juno 60/106. I myself belive that 800$ for Juno 60 is pretty cheap, even 1000$ is ok.

Yea I have to agree that despite what you think of them, the 60's and the 106's go for around $800 give or take, depending on condition.

yeah i have to disagree in that... 60s go for about $700 and 106s go for $600 or so asssuming that the 106 is in very good condition and all the voice chips work.
