I'v been playing for around 3 years, so I guess that makes me a novice I think. Anyway, I'm still stuck with my 10 watt practice amp. The problem is pretty self explanatory. So I've been searching around for a good deal on a new amp and stumbled upon a Hartke HD150 in the local pawnshop for 277,98 USD. If that number seems random, it's cuz I live in South Africa. Anyway, should I take it? It's less than half of what a new one costs and looks like it's in pretty good condition. A few smudges on the outside, but nothing alarming. I played a little bit and it sounds really nice. No sparks or hissing. What do you guys think?
