    I just closed my concert venue in West Columbia, SC, and I have a good many burlap-covered acoustic panels that I need to sell (both 2" and 1" thick, in 24" x 48" and 48" x 96" sizes). Can somebody recommend a good place where I could advertise these to engineers who work in recording studios, churches, or concert venues? (I'm trying ebay too, of course.)

    Any home theater owner would also love to have them.. If you could find local buyers, it would be easier than having ship them...

    Happy selling ;)

    Ah yes, excellent idea! I'll get the word out at local high-end audio retailers too.
    Thanks!

    Going to be difficult to get rid of these panels to a commercial setting, as is, with the burlap having such a high flammability rate.

    Ah, I completely forgot to mention that the burlap is treated to have NFPA 701 fire rating. (Doubled the price of the fabric, as I recall!)

    The home theater idea is a real good one.

    Craig's List may be a better option than eBay. It's generally free and it's regional, which would eliminate the pain of shipping them anywhere. Shipping that sort of thing is expensive. They're not especially heavy, but they are bulky and will fill up a truck pretty quickly. With DIY "studios" popping up in every bedroom and basement all over town, you might be surprised.

    Good point! I think I'll sell all I can locally via Craigslist, word of mouth, signs in audio shops, etc. Then whatever's left I'll put on ebay.
    Thanks!
