Did I get a good deal on this rig?

    I just won an ebay auction for a Peavey Firebass 700 (the red face one) and a Peavey 412 TVX speaker cabinet (4 12" speakers, 450 watts continous, 900 watts peak). I got the whole rig for $609, but the shipping was $150 bringing the total to $759. Basically $380 for each piece. Do you guys think that's about right for the gear? Did I get a good deal or did I get taken? From the research I did, the price sounded about right, but I just wanted to confirm. Either way, I'm stoked and can't wait to rock the roof off.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Sounds about right to me - those firebass heads are very under-rated. Not my cup of tea, but a solid rig.

    Yes, but it also has caster and two handles, with a 2nd person carrying or yourself rolling, it's no sweat at all. I had an old peavey 4x12 that weighed in at about 135lbs, my guitarist would set his guitars, my bass and any misc stuff we wanted on it and would carry/push it into the gig. Never had troubles, not even on steps....
