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?
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
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.
