Some stuff I'd swap:

Drum machines
Roland Tr 707 (may have a loose output connection)
Sequential Drumtrax (The pads play but it freezes when you shift modes. Definitely something that needs to fixed.)
Yamaha RX17

Effects:
Lexicon MPX100
Yamaha REX50 (Has a loose output connection.)
Danelectro Phaser
DOD Flanger (Something is not right with it, but maybe that is a bonus if you like weird stuff.)

Synths and Sampler:
ARP Solina
Moog MicroMoog
E mu EMax

Some stuff I'd like:

Korg MonoPoly
Any Korg from the 70s
x0xb0x
Lexicon Reflex

If you see something you like, make an offer. I might accept, I might not.

Just a query, how does this trading work? I mean how does one guarantee that the other will actually send the item? Who sends the item first? Is there any recourse for scammers? For instance I would love to trade my MOOG LPSEII plus some $ for a DSIPEK. Any takers, or any advice to a newb to this forum?
Thanks

I have a Morley Power Wah pedal and a Line 6 Otto Filter pedal. I also have a Tapco MIX 120 if anyone's interested. I'll entertain reasonable offers. I'm willing to ship worldwide at cost. PM me with any offers.

my main idea with this thread was to make available the stuff that we usually don't bother enaugh to put it on ebay or here. because of fees that makes them ridiculous to sale.
ie: you could have a tx81z :roll: that you don't used. it's there it works but you have other gear that just, replace it. you could sell it for what? 50$ - paypal fee - ebay fee = something like 45$ for a working synth. what do you do after that with 45$ ? not much. but if you trade it for something that you need, at the expense of shipping cost. it's like a blend between recycling and freecycle. you don't have more cash but your satisfaction level may be higher due to the use you can do with it.

when trading it's alot based on trust. that's why the "good trader thread" is there.
if it can help, i never had any problems with such on this forum. i even did a direct trade without any problem.

Novielo, if you're willing to ship internationally do you fancy trading your TX81Z for a Morley Power Wah pedal for a Line 6 Otto Filter pedal?

That's no problem. I'd probably get hit by customs at this end anyway they charge loads for international imports.

Novielo thanks for the input, it was only an example. Trading is best suited for smaller ticket items.

Sequential Pro-One. Early J-wire edition, so it's the more reliable version. Sounds great, with just a couple of scratchy pots. Small problem wherein the jack points like to fall away from the back panel (easily remedied, I just haven't bothered to make a permanent fix). Cosmetically 9/10. Amuse me with your offerings.

hi, so i have this yamaha dx7, one slider tab is missing but still operable with a pokey stick.
in NC, usa.
looking to trade for something that isn't such a beast, like a microkorg, maybe a waldorf? rackmount is cool. make a suggestion.
