How much is my Matrix 1000 worth?

How much is my Matrix 1000 worth?

Im wondering about selling my Oberheim Matrix 1000 1st edition(the black one)

The unit is fully working, but has some tears and wears. I live in norway and its powersupply is american. We use 230v here, and it demands a norwegian must use a converter.

How much is a decent price for these nowadays? I cant seem to find any on ebay to compare prices.

i just paid $300 shipped for one, which should be coming today along with my new arp! $280 + $20 shipping. Apparently they replaced the power supply in it, which is generally a good thing as the black ones are known for having power supply hum. However, that said, you should be able to probably put another power supply in it for whatever voltage you need, so it shouldn't hurt the price TOO much, but i'm sure a native 230v would probably be easier to ask more for since the buyer doesn't have to deal with any converters or upgrading/switching out the power supply. Maybe shave another 10-20 off the price to compensate the seller for having to deal with the power issues?

At there is a guy asking 4000 Kr for one, but I don't think they are worth nowhere near as much...
If I am not mistaken, Filter (in Oslo), has a Matrix 1000 too, but don't recall price...

You might get more than the mentioned prices, as things in Norway are always so expensive, but I'd say you'd be better off selling it locally...
