I’m reminded of the old Guitar Luthier Joke. How do you make $100,000 building guitars? START with $200,000. After reading through the thread about building and selling PartsCasters, I started thinking about how I feel about selling amps after I have built them. The past “shelter on place” months along with a “Cancer Surviving” year have produced an amazing season of learning and building. I’ll of course keep a couple favorites, but I only have so much room. Plus, I want to keep building. So, I’ve sold 2 amps. One in the classified here and one one the Amp Emporium over at TGP. Lost actual inventory dollars on both, lol. BUT I felt like I made a couple of friends in the transactions. That is worth something, right? I am learning, and that is worth something, right? If you can share, and I know that you might not want to divulge your trade secrets, how do you price and sell the builds you don’t keep for yourself. How do you determine what your profit margin? Friends and Family discount? Sell at cost? Sell at a loss? Not really trying to start a “business”. Just wanting to keep the ball rolling with building. I have figured out that if I have to buy a cabinet with shipping and buy a speaker with shipping there is absolutely no profit if one wants to sell an amp for the current market rate. One thing I am doing is putting something up on Reverb with a markup, but selling on Forums at cost. I like the idea of “paying it forward” by selling an amp at actual cost to someone on TGP because I have gleaned so much from being part of the Shock Brothers Community. It might help somebody get in to amp that they otherwise could not afford, or did not have the wherewithal to build one themselves. Share some random thought!
