Buying Out of This World Used Synthesizers

Mar 3, 2008
Back in the 1980s, a new type of musical tool was implemented in music and it helped to define the New Wave sound. This was the synthesizer and it was used in nearly every type of pop and rock music for the entire decade. It proved so popular that 20 years later, we can still pin point '80s music' based on the synthesizer sound.

However, by the time Grunge came along in 1992 and wiped the landscape of rock clean, the synthesizer fell out of fashion and so did buying synthesizers. Now, like so many times in the past, what was once lame is cool again, and people are starting to hear synthesizers in music again, especially in new bands like The Killers, who have used it in some of their songs.

As a result, you may find your children asking for a synthesizer for their birthday or Christmas and unless you want to spend a lot of money on a new one, only to find out they don't enjoy practicing their music with it, you are going to have to look at buying a used one.

When you buy a used synthesizer, you are buying something that you can resell if you have to, which means that you won't be spending hundreds of dollars on something your child will stop using, forcing you to sell it for much less. Instead you will be spending $50 to $100 on something your child may or may not use, then you can sell it for $75 to $125, meaning it is feasible that you could attain a profit off of it. That is a good scenario to be in.

If your child does take to the synthesizer, then you can spend more money to buy them something that is a bit better and a bit newer. At that point, you will know that they are into something like a synthesizer, and you don't have to worry they will get bored of it over a certain period of time.

Synthesizers used to be a staple of music in the 1980s, but through out the 1990s, they were not used that much and they became a dime a dozen. However, not that retro is cool, 1980s synthesizer music has become popular and that means that young musicians are going to want to emulate their favourite artists and get the synthesizers that they use.

Instead of buying a new one, you can buy a used one and nurture their budding musical gift that way, without having to spend a lot of money on it. You can find a synthesizer at various places, including pawn shops, or you can go onto online stores like eBay and buy what you need there. This is the best thing you can do for your children, because not nurturing their gift can lead to problems later, so buy the used synthesizers and make it happen for them. All it takes is a few bucks and a drive to find the deal you are looking for at the pawn shop or online.
