I was reading another thread in the Bass forum and it got me thinking... How many of you have bought an amp without playing through it first? I recently picked up some Hartke stuff...2500 Head and 4x10 cabinet, and even though it sounds ok, I want to upgrade soon. I dont have a ton of options as far as music stores around here, and even the Guitar Center that is an hour away didnt have much in selection. So, I may be buying something at some point without the benefit of playing through it first. Anyone else do this?
