Prophet 5 trading opinions, what do you think?

Well I,ve owned a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 rev 3.3 midi
For several years and have occasionally used it on tracks.
It's a great synth but I,ve only used it for a few sounds
Find it a bit limiting to be honest,

Anyway as of late I,ve really been getting into the Waldorf
Stuff, I missed a chance to do a local trade for a Waldorf Q+
But I,m considering maybe trading it for a Waldorf Microwave XTK
And maybe a Roland MKS-80.

I realize these synths are completely different but that,s kinda
What I,m looking for.

So any opinions? Sound like a decent trade?
I realize I could sell it on EBay, but with such an expensive
Synth, I am weary about going that route.

Cheers

I've done a fair amount of trading over the last couple of years, and it has worked out very nicely. But I've been trading UP, sometimes in straight-up deals, more often with a bit of extra cash (on my end) thrown in. Strictly in terms of market value, either of these trades would be trading DOWN (unless you mean trading a Prophet 5 for an XTk AND an MKS-80; but I think you'd still be losing a bit on that). So I wouldn't do it unless the other party were willing to add cash.

Perhaps put an add in your craigslist, announcing that you've got a Prophet 5 available for sale, but that you'd consider trades for other high-end synths?
