    i was wondering how much a 100 watt bass amp,solid state, 1x15 inch speaker equipped second hand should cost.

    i got one recently and i think its great but i've never played any other bass through any other amp. it's by a make called century and i've never found anything on that company.

    if anyone has ever seen or heard of century before could yee tell me about them

    it has 4 settings on a "para-filter" thing on it that radically change the sound.

    it has a treble and bass settings

    it has 2 inputs , high and low

    i bought it off an amp repair guy and he had put a new speaker into it and fixed up all the problems in the amp section. the only niggle i have with it is that its knobs are scratchy.

    it also sounds class when you play a guitar through it.

    so how much should i have paid for it.
    i live in ireland and i paid in euros.

    so now one knows how much an 100watt combo should cost second hand?
    :confused:
     
  4. I'd be reluctant to guess about equipment in Ireland. But here in the US, I would guess $150 for a second-hand, obscure brand 100 watt combo. You can buy a brand-new 100 watt combo, well-known brand, with a warranty for around $350 or less. Used should be half (or less) of new. But then again, I'm a cheap SOB.

    I don't remember the euro to dollar conversion rate, sorry. I'm sure the limited equipment availability in Ireland will mean higher prices.
     
  5. hi mettalica
    i am in somerset
    i have been looking through the market at ashdown new...130W 15" about £350
    so i reckon a shop will be selling its second hand for a lot less depending on the make
    my guess is 180-200 for a good combo
    been browsing the shops over here but cant pin one down...laney go cheap..cheap :)..

    I bought my Ampeg B100r (100 watt combo) for $200 used, but it was a great deal, so i would say around $300- $350?

    I would say second hand a 100w combo would cost around 150-200 pounds, thats like 250-300 euros (i think)
