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.

in store price: $6500
"eBay suckers will buy anything" price: $8100



that said, if someone actually cancels the BIN price w/ a bid, wonder what it'll go for.

Say what you will, this is a fairly rare synth in virtually pristine condition. I don't think $6,500 (negotiated down to perhaps $6,100 at the store in a face-to-face negotiation) is outside of the realm of reasonableness.

I bought three of these when they were around $40 on ebay. Still waiting for people to start name dropping the artists and albums that these were on. :?

No real qualms with the $6500 price. A bit high, but not worth posting here just for that.
I was just saying in store it was marked w/ a $6500 price tag, then they shoved it on eBay with an $8100 BIN.
Just funny to see eBay games 'n' attitudes in the wild.

Wasn't the Octave Cat creator recently selling some NOS OC's that were even cheaper than this starting bid?

Why is it that everyone with an AX-60 thinks it's made out of gold? And this one has missing slider caps and isn't exactly in pristine condition:



The BIN of $815 pushes the price into Stupidville.

NZ collective insanity over anything 'vintage' strikes again. TR-505 at $151 and still going strong. Let's see where the final bid ends up:

I thought the only selling point of these was the fact that THEY ARE CHEAP.

EDIT: Auction ended @ $173. Fucking shit.

Yeah, if you pay more than $75 for one of these, you're a sucker. Why? Because TR-505s seriously suck. I found out the hard way.
