    My dad had a guy at work tell him he was selling his bass setup and asked if i wanted to buy (he has talked to me play before so he knew i played).
    my dad him write it down
    and its an Orange AD200B Bass Head
    with two Orange 4X10 Bass Cabinets
    for $500 my dad said that he'd buy it for me now if i payed him back, but i dunno if its a good deal the guy said they were fairly new, but i have yet to be able to find any good info on orange amps.
    Should i make the Purchase or not?
    ~thanks~ :help: :help:

    buy it NOW

    AWSOME PRICE ('bout $1500 for the head alone)
    all tube head
    pretty loud amp
    ...and you know you will not get ripped off because its your dads co-worker

    if not for the guy being your dads co-worker, the deal would sound (or smell) fishy...

    If you get it and don't like it and I had the money I'd give you $1000 for it easily, I know one person who owns an Orange set up and I love it, iI admire his tone so much (I know it's not the bass because its a stock MIM J.)

    On Harmony Central, the review for the head said it cost 1950 euros. So that's probably around 2100 US? Not sure the conversion, but I'm pretty sure euros are worth more than the USD. And with the two 4x10's... wow. That is amazing. So yeah... get it and tell us how it sounds! I've never heard of Orange before...
