Anyone here ever sold stuff to a music shop?


#1

How does it work? Would I have to haggle/talk about Clapton?


#2

you know the law.


#3

:frowning: this is what I’m afraid of


#4

got some expensive stuff I could do with getting rid of for $$$ but the whole thing makes me too anxious.


#5

eBay?


#6

that sounds worse to me.

Maybe I can convince my brother to sell them for me if I give him 50% of the money or something


#7

At least with Discogs you can get a good idea of what they are actually worth - so gives you a haggling base if you want to sell them locally.


#8

oh I should mention I’m talking about instrtuments/amps not records


#9

how so? you just take a photo of it, set an asking price and then wait for the money to flood in.


#10

my bad


#11

I have to work out how to ship something or let strangers into my house


#12

do instruments/amps work like other stuff? Should I expect to get about 50% of what I spent on something?


#13

guitars hold their value better than that I think. dunno about amps.

go on eBay, search for what you’re trying to sell and then find the little button that says ‘completed listings’ and you’ll see what sort of money they’re going for.


#14

thanks :slight_smile:


#15

might be able to get £500 for my amp wow!

Maybe I can pay my bro £100 to sell it for me :slight_smile:


#16

What amp is it bam?


#17

vox ac4hw

looks like it’s retailing for about £700. No idea I spent that much money on it.

I’ve barely ever used it what a dickhead


#18

An ex of mine used to love ebaying stuff and clearing overgrown gardens

Shame we broke up really


#19

Looks like a cool little amp


#20

yeah it’s really nice for what it is but I’ve got no real reason to use it.

Holy shit some of my effects pedals are going for loads too.

Damn I wish I was better at selling stuff
