I've always bought used and never lost much money on a pedal. Most of the time, I either break even or make a little.I think people are just going to need to start seeing pedals and music gear like any other used products, ie; your lucky to get 50% out of them.....
Everyone feels like you can use a pedal for a year and get 90% new prices, a “rental fee”, and maybe that has been true in some cases due to high demand but I think those times are over
how much is my year old iPhone, or my laptop, or car etc worth ? Why should music gear be any different ?
Opposite. I've sold six pedals and one guitar in the last week alone (all at the top end of Reverb's "Price Guide."

I contribute it to two things:
- The plague has everyone cooped up and (rightfully so) afraid to leave their home, so they online shop, because #gluttons. Just ask Jeff Bezos.
- Quality photographs. Seriously folks, a pedal has six sides, meaning no listing should have less the six images. Period.
Thats the most contradicting statement I have read in awhile.I think its less about the virus and more about peoples money is tight right now and even a 50$ pedal is on hold for many until this whole thing sorts out....
People aint worried about catching your corona germs.....its more that money is tight IMO
Good luck man.
