    Up for sale or possible trade is my Ampeg PortaBass 250 2x10 Combo. I bought this used about 5 years ago and it has seen very few gigs as I discovered MarkBass not long after I got it. I don't know the build year but it is in 9/10 condition. It will come with a vinyl slip cover that allows you to use the fully operational and removable telescoping handle with the cover on. Great little combo , weighs in the mid '40s. Asking $350 shipped CONUS PayPal preferred. Possible trade would include lightweight cabs or heads with cash from me if needed.

    I didn't note in the original post that I replaced the stock Ampeg speakers with Eminence BassLite S2010 neos. Far superior speakers and listing these days for $145 apiece, although I probably paid half that a few years ago.

    Let's see if we can generate some interest at $350, the speakers alone are worth at least half that.

    the "this has to go to a good home" bump
    I have the 2x12 cab, I also just replaced the speakers to eminence basslites. I promise you will NOT find a more portable amp/cab. countless times that handle came in handy, and to get a combo in this package is crazy. they dont make these anymore. if you need a lightweight, easily transportable combo, you cant beat this!
