I have a Unison 5002, very gently used. I never really played it. I'm interested in selling it.

Does anyone have any advice on selling? I really need to get the money from this. Its listed as new for $1200, so I'm interested in selling it for maybe $1000-$1100. Does everyone think this is fair?

If you're interested in buying, please contact me as well.

You may get 6-7 hundred on ebay if you're lucky. 1k is way too optimistic. Sorry.

Yup. From what I've seen here and on eBay, for that level of horn, reasonably expect resale to be somewhere between 50 & 60% of retail. Maybe 75% if the timing is right. If you're lucky in the stock market or picking lottery numbers, you may get $1,000. But good luck anyway!

90% of retail won't get anyone interested. Every product takes an enourmous value hit when it leaves a retail setting, especially when sold brand new. I don't see it breaking $400 bucks on eBay even if you've sold a lot of instruments there before....

here's a Unision 5002 that's been listed for weeks at a $700 BIN. Only one offer on it.

I would value your horn at around $500 in a personal sale based what I've observed about the depriciation and sale of a number of other asian-rim instruments; particularily ones marketed as a "student" instrument by it's manufacturer. Unisons aren't well known outside enthusiast circles, so forums like this are probably your best bet at moving it. I would put a price on it, list it in the for sale section, and see what happens.

He said Asian- rim.. Unfortunately, It is hard to sell even a good horn now. Tough times I guess. I had a German Keilwerth that was hard to get $900 for.
