    I'm looking for a new amp to play with a Squier Jazz. I got a Rumble 12 with the bass. Looking to upgrade to something a bit louder, probably 200-500 watts. Had GK recommended. I definitely want one used, to save cash. Trouble is I can't find a good site to buy from. Tried the classifieds here, but nothing for under $500 (max I can pay). Any good sites/links?
  2. If there are no good deals on Craigslist this week, wait another week. Repeat as required untlil desired results achieved.

    You only have to pay $500 if you want something today. If you can just toss a line in the water and wait, a good deal will swim by.

    Figured I'd try that next. Only problem is that I've heard some bad stuff about CL on TB. I've used it plenty, but other bassists don't seem to like it.
  4. You will hear bad stuff about Guitar Center too, but they often have good deals on used gear. Google "guitar center used" and you will get their used gear page that will search all their stores. They ship, and if you don't like it you can return it minus the shipping.

    You could also check the TB Classifieds. The chances of finding a local match is slim, but possible. If you live near a major metropolitan area, the chances are actually not bad at all.
  6. Oh, and I forgot the obvious!
    Have you checked TalkBass forum for amps for sale?

    Edit: ...looks like rude and I were posting at the same time.

    Yeah I've been checking the classifieds almost every time I get on, which is almost daily. Tried CL, couldn't find anything. Actually eBay had the best selection. Any taboos prejudices etc.?
