its gotta be priced right. Your stuff, no offense seems a bit expensive. People want good deals.

The stuff in my sig? What would be more reasonable prices?
The Yamaha is in pristine condition and over $300 less than I paid for it new. The Marshall is almost like new and priced $200 less than I've seen it anywhere else (for a used one).
But I'm also trying to sell off some cheap PA equipment (JBL, Mackie, Behringer) for next to nothing - and no one's biting.:idk:

not really. The last stuff I put on Ebay did really well. I am having a much harder time finding stuff, regardless of price. Its like nobody is even bothering to sell anything.

The Yamaha is discontinued... A laptop running Logic or Cubase along with a $300 Firepod is a more affordable recording solution. It's not overpriced... it's just obsolete.
Years ago I purchased an 8 Track Sony MD recorder for $1200... 6 years later I sold it for $250. Yes time is unkind to hardware recording solutions.

This here is your big problem. I work for a Pro Audio retailer, and unfortunately, many recording systems take a freakin dive as soon as they're released. Too many manufacturer's putting out the same things. And like WG said earlier, you're also competing with price drops on new items.

Ugh. So I'm looking at more like $250 for the Yamaha?
The Marshall is a friend's, so I can't play with the price.
Thanks, guys! That helps!

I just don't know anyone who would spend $800 for a hardward 8 input recording device when a laptop can do the same thing.

Here's another tip. If you've ever sold anything on eBay perhaps you've seen the little drop option titled 'What's It Worth' (or similar). You paste in your item and eBay gives the average price the item has been selling for. I've found this to be uncannily acurate.

I wouldn't say $250... but certainly $400-500 is a place to start. I just don't know anyone who would spend $800 for a hardward 8 input recording device when a laptop can do the same thing.
Remember depreciation is not what you perceive what it's worth... it's what fills the need and what people are wiling to pay for it.
