    So about a year ago, you guys recommended that rather than getting a combo amp that I get a GK Backline 600 with two 8 Ohm Avatar SB 112s. I just got my SB 112 in the mail today. But now I need my head.

    Everywhere I have looked shows that these run for $299. The shop I am going to has them in stock for the same price. I was wondering if I should try to talk them down or just pay the $299. I I should try to talk them down, how much should I talk them down?
  2. I got mine to use as a backup amp on craigslist for $100. It works great. I actually use it a lot. If was going to spend $300 on a solid state amp right now. I would probably look for a used Ampeg B2-R. Thats just me though.

    You were advised to get two cabs but you only got one?

    No harm in trying to talk them down. Offer them $225 and see what they say. They can't throw you out for offering.

    As far as used, you can definitely find them dirt cheap, but IMO it is worth buying a new one. GK has a stellar rep as far as customer service, and as the original owner your butt would be covered.

    Well, 2 avatars, but they said the second could be added over time :)

    There are two 600's on Ebay right now at $51 and $99. Consider that.
