    Ashdown Mag300 head
    Ampeg SVT-410HE

    Total price paid: $475 (The Ashdown was New, the Ampeg came used form a friend)



    My buddy cut me a good deal because im a bit of a gear nut, and I pointed him in the direction of a Schroeder 21012R that was only $350... Id have bought it, but I had no money at the time, so he sold me this cab for $125, he has another 410 he'll be getting rid of.

    So far its pretty nice. I love the Ashdown, but im not the biggest Ampeg guy. Although it seems to work, im playing a new Fender Jazz 24, the active bass with basslines in it. I got that for a great price as well, first working bass i've had in a long time.

    i think you could have done better then the ashdown, but all and all a pretty solid rig to start out

    Well, i don't really need more then 300 watts and I really like the Ashdown sound. I've been playing awhile, just never invested in anything other then basses. I pretty much just play for me, and my instructors at my school want to use me for a few sessions, so I figured it's time to ahve some equipment again.

    Haven't had a bass or amp for a little over a year now.
     
  6. I think you got a great deal. If it works for you, awesome!

    I just used a rented 410HE on my gig last night. Loved it! If he sells the other 4x10 at that price, jump on it!

    haha, that was a price just for me. SVT-410HE have sold on Talkbass for $350'ish each.

    Decent rig. The best part of it is the price. Whenever you are ready to upgrade you can pretty much sell that gear and get 100% (if not more) of your money back.

    Yea, im glad for that. Although my upgrade would probably just be a better Ashdown as far as heads. Schroeder for cabs probably.
