    not its not me... I'm of the opinion this is just another hapless guy who is gonna fall out of love with his new toy and in 6 months start buying pedals again.

    But who knows. Anyway, check it out.. some of you guys might score something for cheap.

    NOT IT IS NOT ME. I'd never spend more than 100 bucks for a pedal.

    I’ve always steered clear of used pedals. They sit on the ground and people stomp them. Seems like a recipe for disappointment.

    To each their own, but pedals were designed to be set on the ground and stomped on. So long as it works, doesn't appear to have been abused and comes from a reputable company, buying used is a good way to save money &/or try out a pedal you might not spring full new price to get. This also assumes buying in person to try out or a solid return policy.

    In the above linked ad, the pedals are set up nicely on a board, look good, and are being sold by someone about to pay $$$$ for a Kemper. I'd have no problem buying one of those if I were in the market.

    Look at those pedals a lot of them are relatively new, they're not DMMs and Tube Screamers that were introduced 25-30 years ago, they're pedals that were designed in the last 5-10 years, etc... they are probably lightly used. And if he's the type to impulsively go sell everything for a Kemper maybe he was impulsively swapping pedals so they're all pretty lightly used.

    I joined /r/guitarpedals on reddit.. it's a never ending stream of brand new boards of all boutique stuff. It's a hobby unto itself. So maybe you start thinking it's an unhealthy habit and it's time to just get a Kemper and be done with it all.

    I think used pedals are great... never been burned.

    I can vouch for used gear since 90% of my pedals was bought second hand. There is always an element of risk, but I generally by higher end gear because I find I can easily sell the pedals for what I bought them for if I dont like them.

    I think I had bought and sold close to 50 or so pedals in last 10 years, and only ever had two pedals go bad after short use, but the cost of the pedal plus repair was still cheaper overall than buying new.

    But each to their own...

    Eh, why pay him $2075 for used pedals when that could get you a new Kemper?

    I've been finding it hard to sell pedals on ebay lately. I think the kemper users have slowed the used pedal market down. Strymon stuff is easy to sell but vintage boss etc takes a long time to move even when priced real low.

    I have a Kemper and I kept all my pedals. The Kemper handles pedals very well. The updated reverbs and delays on the Kemper are very nice though.
