It's no use trying to sell your gear here to a bunch of cheapskates who will
make you beg before they take it off your hands (they might even make you
feel like they are doing you a favor). maximize your $$ potential and take
it to ebay. you will likely get significantly more money for your synth
which nobody here cares enough about to make you a respectable offer on....
plus, it will probably be an easier sale. sigh.
