Randall basscombo's, why so cheap ?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Doryan, Sep 1, 2002.

  1. A friend of me who play's guitar recently bought a Randall stack: head + 4x12"s cab. And I was amazed about the price; about 1.000 € (is as much the same in $).

    So I reasearched about their bassamps, and I found a 200w 15" basscombo at 1.000 $.
    With an 9-band eq. :eek:

    What makes them cheaper than other brands ?
    Are they of lesser quality ?
  2. Not by definition.. behringer is also very cheap, but still top-grade stuff..

    it's prolly cheap coz it's made in eastern europe or asia..

    Isn't 1000€ a normal price for a 200w combo?

    Actually, I just bought new stack with 350w head into 4x10" cab, cost me pretty much around €1000. Well, to be honest the head wasen't exactly new, it was €100 cheaper.

    1000€ is not an unusual price for a 200W/115 combo.
    Here are some prices I found at Musik Produktiv in Austria:
    SWR Workingman 15 (160W/115): 850€
    Ampeg BA 210SP (220W/210, 16 digital effects): 1090€
    Warwick CCL (250W/115): 949€
    Gallien-Krueger 400RB/115 (240W/115): 1099€
