    I am looking to buy a used Ampeg SVT3 Pro and a used Ampeg 8x10. YES, I have played thru both of these pieces of equipment before and I like what I hear. To buy these new, I'd need just under $2000. I want to buy them used, but I havent seen them in the classifieds. I was just wondering if anyone knows how much they would cost together to get this rig used.

    A fairly good measure for used gear is about 60-65 percent of what it would cost you new (not list, but actual cost) It works really well for almost anything. Except gear that is in particularly high demand or is no longer available new.

    This assumes that it is very good condition. "mint" stuff may always bring a bit more and of course you wouldn't pay that if it is beat up. But for typical used gear, it is a fair measure.

  3. Actually, you could spend less new. 3PRO for $750 and 810 for $800 would run you about $1600. I suggest a new head and a used cab. You could probably find a good used one for $600 maybe..
