Default How much could I sell my pedals for?

Background story: I bought the Pearl Eliminator double pedal back in june because I was trying to get a good pedal for my new kit. I had tried out the DW's and IC's but they didn't work and, honestly, the eliminators didn't feel incredible either but I was tired of running around everywhere and trying out pedal so I figured I'd get used to them. They still feel too light or smooth for me so I'm trying to sell them to get the new speedcobras. I've tried them out and they work for me.

So I've only had these pedals for a few months and nothing has broken on them. I still have the case and everything. I've taken good care of these things as far as I can tell. So my question would be is how much I can expect to sell these things for. I know they go for about $380. What would be a fair asking price?

P.S. The place I bought them at won't take them back after this long.

$380 for a used pedal?.....you'll have very little hope mate. It doesn't matter that they're "barely used", the fact is that they are still used and buyers know it. Musicians friend has them for between $300 to $350 new, so given that, who's gonna pay $380 for a 'pre-loved' model? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navig...arl+eliminator

Have a scout around ebay and check out what fair value is for them. That'll be your best indicator.

Watch this auction, on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/Pearl-Eliminator...item1c162d1315 that should give you a ballpark figure.

A price between $180 and $220 is fair, depending on the overall condition.
The general rule is about 50% of the original price, give or take.
