Is this sound like a fair trade?

    I saw this Marshall 4x12 bass cab in this shop and the price is listed $430 because is second hand.

    I ask about part exchange cabs and they would give me $200 for both Ashdown MAG210 and MAG115.

    So basically i only need to pay $230 extra and i planning to run the marshall to the little markbass 250. Since the marshall is a 4ohm cab.

    no way i'd do it. you could get probably close to double for those cabs if you sold them yourself.

    Yea I'd just sell them on craigslist or something, you'd get way more for that rig

    +1 keep your gear.

    Many reasons:
    - I think 210 + 115 is much more modular and portable
    - 210 + 115 sounds better, though some people feel differently
    - 210 + 115 looks better
    - I think for bass, I'd prefer Ashdown over Marshall in general
    - The price that the shop is offering for your Ashdown is LOW!
