    50? You think? My friend got 50 for a 25 Watt Ibanez ...

    I'll give you $2000...it's obviously vintage as nobody would bother making 10 watt amps these days! :D
  5. Probably $30

    What ever the cost of taking it to be recycled would be.

    That should be about right, give or take. The problem will be finding a buyer.

    Wasn't the old rule of thumb $1 a watt?

    I think that was just for power.

    For a combo add the price of a like cab.

    Keep it! You're gonna need the 10Watt amp more in your future than the 10$ you would get from selling it.
  12. Definitely.

    Why exactly would I need a 10 watt amp with crappy tone when I have a perfectly good 100 watt one sitting right next to it?

    And I'm selling it to a store, not a specific buyer.
  14. "selling" it to a store is a surefire way to get the least amount of money possible. You should prolly just give it away then, as you'll spend as much in gas going back and forth as you would get from the store.

    I'm just being catty here, but if you don't want the amp, fine, but don't be unrealistic as to think you'll get any kind of decent money for it either...as I'm sure you aren't.

    You can leave the 10W amp in your room, and leave the bigger, heavier amp in another room which is big and can hold a whole band (like your garage), and you will also have easier access to a car when you want to transport your amp.

    Eh, eh?

    Yep. I have a crappy guitar amp which I use to learn new material. That way I don't have to set up my gigging rig everytime I have to practice.
  17. There is one place that we play where the venue requires bassists and guitarists to go direct. We're usually the 3d or 4th act on the bill, for a 20 minute set.

    I have an old Ibanez 15 watt practice amp that I take along to use backstage to warm up with. So I can at least hear myself over the other musicians that are doing the same thing.

    I would rather "haul" this little ten pounder for this purpose than my Peavey Combo :D Plus if anybody decides that they "like" it more than I need it, I haven't lost much :cool:
