Is it just me or has selling gear become difficult?

    Yeah, i had some big, heavy Peavey SP5's . Yamaha board and a 600w QSC amp, i just tuned it all up for some small outdoor party gigs, then Covid. The lamest was the new $60.00 apiece drivers i put in the cabs, only to get $35.00 apiece trade in....:rolleyes:
    Whatev though, that heavy old shit is obsolete anyway, im going tiny mixer and powered mains if i buy one again. My buddy has some Mackie Thumps that are hella light and sound pretty damn good.

    I have not tried, I used be close to real cool pawn shop in SE Washington. They had a black face bassman about 2 years ago for around $700 . I wanted that thing so bad.
    I bought my LP special from them.
    I am lucky again that I found a good local store to do some trading. No money exchanged, just gear. I got the LP studio ebony and the HX stomp.

    I barely look at used gear anymore because so many sellers think 'used' means collectible. It's hard to find the kind of deal that makes buying used worth while.
