How much do you think this is worth?

    SWR Bass 750, basically mint, with SKB 4-space Rotorack and speakon cable, along with a Henry the 8x8, also mint. I'm thinking of selling, and I'm not sure how to price it. Thanks for any advice.

    I recently sold an excellent condition (mint?) Henry 8x8 that I purchased new in 1995 for $525 in So. CA.

    Would that be the 750x head or the 750 power amp?

    This is the Bass 750 head - the precursor to the 750X. Both pieces were purchased in 2001. It's the chrome-front Henry. I was thinking of asking 700 for the head/rack/speakon cable, and 600 for the Henry. Does that sound reasonable? Obviously I could bargain a bit, but is it reasonable to start there? Lower? Higher?

    That sounds fair for the amp. Seems a bit high on the cab. I couldn't find anything on PrePal. Did you check completed auctions on eBay?

    BTW....is the Pabst in your username a refernce to Pabst Blue Ribbon beer?

    A used SWR Henry is worth $400 in decent condition in most places. I use the term most places because they're too big and expensive to ship, so it's a local thing.

    You can ask more and wait longer, maybe find the right buyer.

    Pabst Blue Ribbon - yes indeed.

    Ok, I feel decent about asking $700 for the head. $400 for the Henry though? That'd be a steal. They're ~$1k new. I'd like to not go below $500, and IMO, that'd be a great deal.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    I don't know much about either of those products, but you won't be doing yourself any damage if you start a little high. That's the beauty part... if you're asking too much, nothing happens, and all you do is lower your price until someone wants it. If you think $600 is good for the cab, ask for it. If no one buys, you know what to do.
