    Ok good to know, I put a down payment(still fully refundable) at Daddy's. I though I saw new ones going for around 300.00(but I can't conform where) but I've heard older models can usually be higher quality. this looks to be around 10 years old give or take

    I'm not sure if this is what you meant; post#8 on the link "What is it worth?" part?
    I'm just checking if I'm being taken for a ride on the resale value, I may not have made that clear enough in my initial post. Please let me know if this is still out of line.

    Thanks,

  7. There's rules about what your doing on this thread, but I wouldn't pay $260 for it - too much, IMHO.:eyebrow:
     
  8. $150 - $200
     
  9. More like it.

    They're hinting that you're supposed to be a contributing member.

    With so much USA stuff around.. I'd hold.

    Problem solved! and I agree. I found one at another location for 187.00 I'm going to offer to pay 200.00 or have them ship the other one( which they pay shipping to their store) and see how it goes.

    So i wound up with the GP7SM head and TVX 410 for 371.00 for the both, and I'm pretty happy with that. I brought it to my practice space and tried it through my guitarists fender musicmaster( you know, the tiny little bass!) and it sounded pretty good, I'll be trying out my Jaguar bass with the new rig on wednesday. I'm really psyched about this because this is the first amp and cab I've purchased on my own. Until now, I have been playing through he same combo amp my parents bought me when i started playing 15 years ago.

    Yeah so my new gear failed miserably at a gig on Friday. Got to the gig set up my gear, double checked everything was in order.... and the amp sounded like a 50 watt combo. yeah i could tell it was on but only hear it up to ab out 2 feet away. The cab is the 8ohm so that cuts the power from the amp to 140watts if i am correct. but for some reason at the practice space, and we practice really loud, this hauled some serious a$$. am i missing something. is it just the live setting that drowned everything out? does it matter which speaker output i use(neither is labeled as the main output). Or is the cab seriously underpowered by this amp?

    You practice space is probably much smaller than the place you played. The bigger the room, need more boom boom. :D
    The Peavey cab probably isn't the problem, unless some of the drivers are not working. But 140 watts simply is not sufficient power for any room bigger than a coffee house.
    You're gonna see countless posts from guys with rigs in the 1000 watt range (I'm one of 'em), and if you're talking about a solid state power section, that's kinda where you wanna be. Most of the time I only use about half of it, but it's nice to have on hand for larger shows.
    300-400 watts is great for an all tube rig.

    I owned a 410TVX and I always felt it was lacking in the mids, and in turn I had a hard time being heard when we played live. Had to really dial in a lot of mids to get around that naturally scooped sound, and it was still tough. Just sayin'.

    Round 2 - SWR 550X Head, 550w @ 4ohm, 375@ 8, SWR Goliath 2 cab,500 watts, so wIll probably get a 8 ohm 1X15 too to fill it all in. Hopefully this will do it ok once i add another cab.
