Buy used now or wait until Black Friday?

edited October 9 in OP-1

Hi all (sorry for crossposting on accident),

I'd love to get your advice on what you think is my best option for acquiring a OP-1. I've finally saved up enough money and am very close to bidding on Ebay for a used one. The one thing that has me hesitant is that I've heard that TE often produces a new shipment of OP-1's around the holiday season and Black Friday. If thats the case I'm willing to wait as I'd generally prefer a mint condition product. With the release of the OP-Z though (which i'm also planning to get), I'm concerned they may not order another shipment of the OP-1's.

What would you all do if you were in my shoes? Thanks for your time and help!


  • damn almost 50 views and 0 answers. this leads me to believe practically no one knows when the next shipment will come in and I should just preorder on MOMA now.

  • I’m selling mine with accessories and soft case if you’re interested.

  • OP-1s always seem to come in waves. Nobody really seems to know when a new wave will arrive. Prices steadily go up during droughts and drop again a few weeks after everybody has been restocked again. If you have the patience you'll benefit financially from waiting. Otherwise go for it.

  • Personally I couldn't wait so I bought a used one. I paid around $950, but it is mint & it came with a soft case & an antenna (this was about 2-3 months ago).

    If a new 1 was available for $900 when I was looking I would have bought new (the only new 1 was around $1,200 when I was looking).

    When new one's become available for $900, they go FAST (at least that's how it was when I was looking). Something to keep in mind.

  • Don't over pay. Wait for a restock or buy used for a price you are okay with.
