I would say this is more of a story than a general question and just wanted to share this on the forum! So, a about 4/5 years ago I decided I was due an upgrade in amps, I must have been 17/18 at the time, this would be my first move from practice/gig worthy combo to a real 'stack'. I spent a while looking round local shops and searching on the internet, when my bass playing friend turned round and said he wanted to sell his amp so I went round his house and tested the rig out, it happened to be a Mesa D180 with an Ampeg 4x10 cab. He said he wanted £600 ($985) for the pair but I knocked him down to £450 ($740) for the pair. I've been in love with it ever since and I have added a 1x15 ampeg to rig also. Looking round the forums and searching for a Mesa D180 this seems to be a bit of steal?? What do you all think? Cheers!
