    Hi! I'm Andy and I'm new :p

    I currently play through a Peavey Firebass and 1820 box. It's a great setup. BUT I've been hankering for an Acoustic 370 (for some ungodly reason).

    Soooo....question time.

    1. Which would be louder (through the same enclosure) - the Acoustic 370 or my Peavey?

    2. How much should I expect to pay in UK £ for a 370? I know that's like asking for the length of a piece of string but....just a ballpark figure for one in reasonable condition would be ideal! :)

    Cheeeeeeers, m'dears! :cool:

    Hi,

    I don't know about prices in the UK. I suppose you could buy one on eBay from the US, but then there's the mains issue to deal with (and the 370 US versions were 120 Vac, 60 Hz only).

    Remember that the 370s were made in the '70s making it a nearly 30 year old amp. The Peavey is much, much newer and more likely to last longer. If you do get a 370, don't sell your Peavey.

    The 370 is a beast (both power wise and weight wise).

    Have fun!
