    I have a Marshall 9200 mono Dual Bloc amp and 2 1960 Marshall speakers and 2 JCM Slash Signature speakers. The condition is very good. How do I come up with a fair resale price?

    There is no such thing as a fair price anymore thanks to the internet. There are too many flippers out there using the ignorant analytics to push their junk. One man's treasure......as they say!

    You set the price that you are comfortable with.

    I use ebay sold/completed listings. Some people say they are low others high but in my experience it shows what people are prepared to pay for equipment.

    Mind I never list on ebay their fees are too high and far too complex and their policies awful.

    Will need to know which 1960 cabinets those are as well as if the original speakers are loaded in all cabinets.

    Look at the sold items on Reverb and Ebay.

    The Slash cabinets are identical to the 1960AV/BV cabinets, other than the name plate in the bottom corner. I had one. MAYBE $200 more than a regular $400-500 used AV or BV to the right guy.
    They are kinda rare to pop up, but that is my take. I think I got $700 for mine, a few years ago, with the snakeskin cover.

    The 9200 pop up all the time. The last one sold on Ebay for $455 and shipping.

    Regular 1960 cabs, in mint shape go for around $350, maybe $400. Less on craigslist, without sellers fees to cover, and shipping charges.

    The trend is (and has been for years now) for smaller rigs (DSL40, etc) and away form the big stuff....unless it is "Collectible" or pre 1973...hence the cheap prices compared to original list.

    Ignore asking prices, they are meaningless, and at times humerous.

    And welcome to the forum!

    I also use ebay's sold items listings as a point of reference. Oddly enough, what I sell on ebay NEVER brings top dollar for that type of item, even though in many cases my item is in better condition and I give a more lenient return/exchange policy. I swear ebay is swarming with shill bidders. I don't have a shill working for me to jack up the prices. Maybe I should?

    As for 1960 cabs, I disagree with the statement that mint ones go for 350. I see average ones going for 500 and "vintage" ones offer up for more. I WISH they were cheaper, because I would buy a couple more 1960s if they were cheaper.

    Where are you located? The cabinets interest me.

    Incidentally, shipping them is actually surprisingly not that expensive if you know how to do it. Use FedEx ground service. If you have a good music store in your area there's a fair chance that they have a box or two for 4x12 cabinets that you can use. They might even agree to handle the shipping of the cabinets for you if they're good people and you talk nice to them. As a dealer they should have pretty good rates with fedex or other carriers. Music stores get more big box merchandise shipped to them than any other kind of retail store, so they have the price breaks on shipping that makes it affordable.

    Why are you parting with this ? I might be interested too depending on location.

    although, I tend to get a sense of the market, by looking at both sold & not selling.

    Let's say, the 9200 sold for $450. Everyone is selling them above $1K. Chances are, you could list them well below the $1K+ price, but still do well, better than $450...

    I just went by the only Ebay sold listing, and yeah that is pretty cheap.. Reverb shows many of them, from $450 to over $1K.
    The average seems to be in the $800 range. The only two listed now are at $800 and $893, both accepting offers, and listed 3 and 4 weeks ago.

    If the 9200 is in great shape, no real dents/scratches, then do a sart bid at $500 with a buy now for $800-$900.

    The 1960 if in excelent condition can start at $350 and buy now for $550.
    The Slash should go for a few hundred more.

    Agreed. Reverb.com will show you the values of gear sold and will also indicate the time lines of their value over the course.

    Are you looking to sell it here? Are you willing to ship? PM me if you are serious about selling cabs.

    Look for similar (old) listings on Reverb. Ask the same and drop your price with 10% every week until it sells.
