Anyone have any particular sites they'd recommend for selling pedals?

    I purchased many of mine off Reverb. I have not, however, sold any gear there.

    I have always bought and sold pedals on fleaBay with absolutely no issues, if you are rated 100% and they are rated 100%.

    Ebay is where I buy 90% of my pedals, maybe 5% on reverb and 5% at GC or other brick & mortar shops.

    Reverb seems like a better place to sell given the complaints about ebay, but I always get better deals on ebay so i seldom bother hunting on reverb.
    What I observe is the reverb sellers are more obsessed with getting top dollar for used stuff.
    Ebay sellers seem more interested in actually selling stuff and moving on to the next thing.

    Whichever venue you choose, I'd suggest pricing based on completed ebay auctions, not on reverb prices, because average asking prices on reverb seem to result in display more than sales.

    Note that GC used pedals are even cheaper than ebay completed auctions.
    Used pedals are IMO not worth as much as pedal owners that want to get rid of them wish they were worth.

    Reverb is the best, lower fees than flea-bay. I've sold many pedals there with no issues.

    Either one is fine if your pedals are priced to move. Otherwise they’ll be sitting there forever with all the other stuff.

    "fleaBay" is not an endearing term, but it IS an accurate description, IMHO.

    If you factor in the unscrupulous buyers AND sellers (and there are plenty of both) AND fleaBay's usury fees, there are better alternatives for moving gear.
