First time buyer needs advice.

  1. Howdy folks!

    Just got quoted $725 Canadian (roughly 575 U.S.) for a new MTD Kingston 5 passive, case not included. I want to buy new only, but is this too much? Please advise.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have done some research and that price looks to be the going rate. I think if you can get the store to knock of fifty bucks you are doing alright.
  3. Hi Purfektstranger!

    Thanks for the input, I really appreciate it. I'll certainly try to bargain a few bucks off the price because it's at the extreme high end of my budget at the moment (though it seems to be the best bang for the buck). I have future upgrades in mind when I have extra cash, so this bass is extra tempting.

    Thanks again,
