    it depends ..

    How old, how much does it cost new, what state and so on ...

    Just look after bargains on the net, you should have an idea of the prices ...

    Good rule of thumb is price a NEW one and then expect to pay about 70% of that tops.

    I usually search Ebay - both current and completed auctions - for a ballpark figure on what gear has been going for used.

    ah right yea i totally forgot bout ebay thanks guys
  7. When I was tracking Ebay sales, I learned that 66% of new-discount price was prominent.

    For some reason, QSC power amps consistently bring much higher than 66%. On the other hand, Rane gear consistently sells for less than 66% of its new, mail order price. Rane is very plentiful on eBay on a consistent basis. Rare or high demand items will bring higher prices.
