    I have seriously been thinking about selling my crate bx-100 and getting an ampeg ba-115 or maybe the b100r depending on how much i could get for my crate. If anyone could give me a rough estimate(sp?) it would be really cool. Thanks.

    If you're going to sell it to GC, it'll be about one-fourth of list price. Really. They buy them new for half of list, and they'll only give you about half of what they'll sell your used one for. So you're better off trying to sell it to a private party. The best you'll be able to do is probably about half of list price, since you can buy a new one at GC for two-thirds of list. Clear as mud, right?

    Im going to try to sell it to the store that I bought it from which is locally owned. I bought it from them for $350 which is about 30% of the list. If I remember right the store didnt pay much less than $350 for it. So maybe I could get around $200 for it? Does that sound about right or am I just babbling?
