Audioweevil08

Post by chrisdermo » Wed Oct 28, 2020 10:44 am

Just came up on my reverb feed and I had to repost...... Because the price made me laugh both heartily and out loud for the first time this week.

£2800 !!

I suspect the lucky collector will whisk it off to a high security warehouse not to be seen again until it goes up for auction at Sothebys in a few years.

When that listing popped up in my Reverb feed this morning I began to regret picking up my Postcard Weevil on the site a month prior knowing I could've held out for that, until I noticed that I'd have to part with the price of mine 23 times over for it :lolhammer:

Maybe our friend here has caught a premonition of the post-apocalyptic noise synth boom and is trying to pre-empt it by massively marking up Tom's work? As someone from a neighboring state the people of Delaware have always perplexed me.

Saw that too. Imagine it will sit there at that price for awhile. Crazy.

I might have a pristine BB BoardWeevil 2015 for as low as 2000€ if anyone's interested. Don't sleep on it, won't last long !

£190 was the original price!
(I'd forgotten - checked archive.org)
SCALPING to say the least.

I definitely bought mine at around double the original price and sold it for the same - £190 brand new was a steal to be fair.

Hey maybe they'll get lucky and someone will want one enough pay a LOT of money. Tom imagine the money you could make releasing one off remakes of these old things into the eBay/reverb sphere! :hihi:

I very much dislike this speculative/investment/collector approach - of course, not limited to synths by any stretch!

One offs: very happy making a living off batches - I realised early on that one-offs don't stack up!

Of course! I hope I didn't come off as trying to make a serious suggestion there.

The funny thing is that there's another one up for sale on Reverb for $450 as we speak!! I too had a good chuckle when the $3500 unit popped up. Newsflash – if there's been one sitting there at $450 not moving, shifting one at 7x is probably not going to be a thing.

Apparently, you just made one sell for $450. I’m not seeing it on Reverb now.

Wish I could sell mine with a clean conscience. It effectively cost me a lot more than $450 - it was part of a package deal that I wouldn’t have gotten involved with if I could have bought the Weevil separately. I sold the other thing at a huge loss. Which was a mistake on a couple levels..

But my dry skin doesn’t work with the Weevil’s touch plates. So it has been whisked off to a high-security warehouse...

Oh funny. Well, enjoy that, whoever got it, if it was anyone here. Those are fun.

The seller also has a cwejman qmmf for £5000. Don't think you have to look hard to find a cheaper one that even from other reverb scammers. I wonder what the point of that site is, anyone ever got a good deal??

I wonder if that is the very same unit that sold on Reverb within the last week or two. I don’t remember the exact price of that listing but it was something reasonable because I don’t remember laughing, just being bummed that I didn’t see it before it sold.

Nope it's still there. Just $2100 USD. LOL. I could snag a cocoquantus and plumbutter for that.

I could grab a used Buchla 208 for that.

I could snag the full Isakul Mobenthey euro setup for that.

I could grab two Lorre Mill double knot's and two Keyed Mosstones for that.

Someone is just insane. I mean, theres a full BB Synth voice for 2k US on Reverb right now. I laugh at this weevil listing every time I open my Reverb feed.
