Is it safe to buy used pedals off of Ebay? I honestly don't have enough money to buy new ones, but it seems tat alot of people are selling their pedals for cheap, under 20 bucks. Can I trust that these are in working condition? Has anybody had any bad experiences with buying used pedals?

no they're great to buy used because they're USUALLY durable

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

As long as the seller's rating is high and you read the entire auction page, buying secondhand is usually almost always dependable and a lot cheaper than buying new gear.

yeah and if it happens to not work and you got ripped off, if you did it through paypal you can usually get a refund back if the product was misleading.. like they said it worked fine when it didn't really.

Indeed.

Just check the WHOLE description, return policy, and check the seller's rating.

A seller with a good rating probably wouldn't sell you a bad pedal. If it did have something wrong with it, he would say so.
