there's a sucker born everyday.
about 225 bucks.
if you're a euro
Here's my take on it:
The winning bidder is in the UK. If the Timmy isn't RoHS compliant (I'm not sure if it is or isn't), the buyer can't have a new one sent directly from Paul. Add in the weak dollar, plus a bidder that just has to have an item right now at any cost and there you have it!
I will sell mine right now for $355, I'll even ship it to the UK for free!
yeesh i just sold one for 190 and felt kinda bad about it
(not that bad tho)
sometimes money is not an issue
good for the seller ...
If I were one of these builders making pedals that are in high demand I'd be selling them on ebay only and cashing in. Not sure how these builders can look at some of these auctions of pedals they made selling for two and three times what they sold them for new and not be frustrated. I would think at the price Paul sells the Timmy for he aint making a whole lotta profit after its all said and done. Clearly that was the most I've seen a timmy sell for!
Looks like I should call him up and order eleventybillion of them, and retire selling them on ebay.
There's still time to spend BIG bucks on this one too:
pretty amazed that thing doesn't have any bids yet actually... rarely see a tim go for less than 300 and they get up there fast
Yep, this is it. Some of my highest bidders have been in Singapore!
The prices have been kind of all over the place with those over the last few years. I sold one about 2 years ago for $365 yet I had a buy it now of $285. I've seen some Tims sell only slightly over $200 and then many have sold up around $300. The average lately on those is somewhere around $250 on the bay. Before this Timmy I don't have I had seen one sell more then about $240. Let the drama continue....
I am glad you aren't one of "these" builders then!!
I am on the list for a Tim. I am buying from Paul C. directly because :
A. Paul makes money when he sells one pedal to one person... not one pedal that is passed from person to person...
B. He doesn't overcharge like a lot of other builders do.
C. I am patient.
I am not going to name any names, but David Barber isn't one of "them". He is another builder that makes money making good pedals and sells them for reasonable prices.
I hope you know that he is making money off of the pedal. He just isn't making you pay too much for the pedal. ( I have my opinions on builders that charge too much. But to me, that is TGP politics.. not govt. politics, but TGP politics, and I ain't in that mess either. )
