    For the price range you're looking at, I really like Peavey's small combo amps.
     
  3. Buy used.

    Same stuff, same working condition, nearly half the price.

    Well... maybe. There are good used deals out there, true.

    There are also half-broken pieces of $#!t that someone is trying to unload before it gives up the ghost.

    If you do this, don't do eBay. Buying used, IMHO, requires an in-person audition and test.

    Good luck.

    I couldn't agree more. I don't know why, but I'm much more hesitant to buy a used amp than a used bass. :confused:

    But like bigbeefdog's posted, if you can give the amp a really hard testing session, you'll be alright. :cool:

    But I'd better get used to buying a used amp, I want a vintage SVT one day! ;)
