    i found this Marshall Bass 7400 at Music Go Round for $600, is it a good deal? should i jump on it? i played out of it for a little bit and it sounded great, but i didnt really have time to check it out that well. it was in great working cond., looked great, so is this a good deal or not? there was one on eBay, the item number is 1428552012 , it has specs and a pic there so you can check it out if ya want. what do you think?

    I have never liked Marshall for Bass, also It is more focused for fingerstyle.

    I wouldnt take it.
    But then again.. that´s just me.

    Marshall builds excellent GUITAR amps. Never heard anyone say anything like that about their bass amps. Hint, hint.

    I remember something now about the 7400 Specifically.
    Bass Player reviewed it, and gave excellent results.
    Dont remember the Issue anyway.

    Never played or heard a Marshall bass amp. Haven't seen any reviews for them, either.

  9. Never owned one, but have played 'em, they're OK. If the price is right, and you like the sound, I say go for it.
