New or Used???

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by chips, Jan 27, 2004.


  1. Hello badgers,

    I'm soon to invest in a new amp, and a guy at my mums work (who played bass in some band) has said to go 100 watts and second hand. Or im looking at buying a 150 watt Ashton combo for $680 brand new (AUS dollars). Any suggestions on whether i should go for second hand or get something new in that price range. Also that price is with my 15% discount i get.... Any input would be excellent, Cheers

    Maybe 100 watts all tube, but otherwise at LEAST 150 watts solid state. That ashdown would be a good choice.

    I had a look at the Ashton the other day in the music shop, and i was rather impressed, go for it man!
