Does anyone have an unused Reddit account? (other markets?)

Postby echorec » Fri Jan 13, 2023 12:54 pm

I need to liquidate a few things to pay bills. Unfortunately, Reddit's main gear sellers forum requires a 90-day approval period. I could've sworn I had an ID from several years ago, but I can't find the ID or email. If anyone had an account they don't use or a spare login, it'd be appreciated.

Also, any thoughts on places to sell outside Reddit/ILF/TGP/eBay/Sweetwater/Reverb? I had a friend put stuff on facebook marketplace, and I'm about to do Craigslist.

It feels like if you're not on Reverb, there's just no way to unload stuff anymore. It doesn't matter if you've got the lowest price anywhere, everyone feels so emboldened to lowball you. "Hey brother, hope you're doing well. You've got this listed for $195, but would you take $175?" --(thinking in my head) No, I wouldn't, you toad. It's already $75 off retail and you want me to give you $95 off retail. I really hate the fake nice guy routine. Like if you butter me up, I'll be cool with you trying to fuck me.

I blame this on Reverb. When I didn't include an OBO option on eBay, this basically never happened. Now, you can't list anything without people acting like you're running a charity for dipshits. If someone's already got the lowest price available anywhere, and you're trying to play someone against other sellers, you're an asshole and you absolutely know that you're lowballing people.

Reddit has a few of different gear trading selling forums: there's r/letstradepedals, r/gearforsale, r/sellyourpedals, r/synths4sale, r/GuitarTradeUK, probably others. They have different rules so maybe one of those might be better for you?
Good deals: Monkey Boy, julius_deane, oldangelmidnight, K2000 (x2), kbithecrowing, Casavettes, leaves turn, psychedelicrelic, nevada, alexsga, sa1126, Invisible Man, foot, solewheelin', hbombgraphics, bronzetalon, Aquietcabin1978, bass_econo, christafarai; (on TalkBass) jazzyitalian, MicG, bufert57, marineman227, karter2000; (on TGP) leray1, Electroman, bigEbeer; (on DIYstompboxes) LucifersTrip, lethargytartare; (on HC) StratsRule07, lfrz93, Firebrand, caeman, bluesthug

Thanks for the recommendation. I tried this one last night. 650 hits with zero bites so far...

Over the last month, all I've gotten is PMs on eBay/TGP asking me to come down...when they're already the lowest on the net.

If I'm at $145 and a shop is at $160, why do I need to come down to $135? I've got the better price & I'm offering 1-on-1 customer service. There's no convulated and disorganized chain of command. You're going to get exactly what you pay for. I'm so *arrrrrgh* at this point.
