I'm in the US and I use:
https://reverb.com/ (this site is great)
Ebay for cheaper/noncritical items where a bad purchase won't cost me (you can pretty much skip buying synths on there)
Gearslutz (a bit more reliable than ebay but I prefer to use escrow for large items)
Craigslist (always for local purchases where I can test the product personally, and never at either person's home or business unless they're a known quantity).

When it comes to computers I actually do some forum trading/purchasing and we use sites like beerology & heatware for 'reputation', which is far more trustworthy than modern Ebay ratings.

Ebay is untrustworthy for large audio purchases, the number of synth scammers tracked on Gearslutz alone shows this.

i have had some really great experiences on Ebay, but you certainly have to be very careful.

I will add that I use eBay often as well. Just be careful when you are offered a pristine condition Moog Modular :)

Just for reference, here's the GS thread on bad ebay traders to give our users an idea of what to look for (or to avoid) when using ebay: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electro ... -list.html
