  1. I could see this happening a lot in the 80's, when everybody was dumping analog.

    It's hard to find "steals" on synths anymore, though, thanks to eBay.

  2. love that guy. looks like he was having fun. i once bought a moog opus 3 at a pawn shop in my home town for $65… sold it for $400. this was back in '97. now i think they are around $700 on ebay.

  3. ebay killed the pawn shop deals…..all they do is look for it on ebay and they will not accept less than the amount of "ebay's price"

  4. Although I own Moog gear and I love the man and his genius,…. I recently grabbed a surprisingly good deal on an ARP Omni in ridiculously good shape because the gentlemen said it was slightly out of tune! I paid $50 bucks for it, with all of the control pedals etc….! I've seen the ARP pedals alone fetch more than what I paid for the Omni!! It sounds great and its a good companion to my Moog gear as well!
