Should I make this trade

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MOEBASSPLAYER, Jan 4, 2012.

  1. I am looking for input from the fine bass community.

    I have 2 opportunities, and I am not sure which one to pursue.

    I can either trade a Peavey T20 bass for an Acoustic B100 combo amp, or purchase it for $135?

    If any of you have used these items before, which do you think is the better deal?

    Thanks for the input.

    I am not a collector, but if your T20 is an old Peavey bass, it would probably fetch more than $135 - but you might have trouble finding a buyer.

    My style would lean towards buying the amp outright, if you like it. I have never played through one.

    But, ask my wife, I always 'lean' towards buying gear and keeping what I already have. :bassist:

    I'm with 1954Bassman, keep the bass and buy the amp out right.
    You can't have too many Basses,plus the Acoustic B100 is a nice combo for $135.00

    The OP is kinda unclear.

    Is he aquiring a Peavy Bass for either an Acoustic Amp or $135?


    Is he aquiring an Acoustic Amp for either a Peavey Bass or $135?

    It doesn't matter. The Amp or the Bass for $135 is a good deal, if in good shape. Spend the money, keep everything.
  6. I think I need to clear something up, I am the one with the T20, and I will be either trading it or dishing out $135 for the amp. In my mind it made sense.

    If the Peavey is in good condition, it's worth $175-$200. If you want the amp, buy it outright and sell the Peavey on ebay.
  8. The Peavey is worth $75 to $100 more than the amp. If it were me I would buy the amp outright. That said, it is not a particularly bad trade if you don't have the money for the amp and/or you never play the T-20. There are many collectors who are saying that old Peaveys are going up in value. I don't know if that is really true, but I do know that most sellers I know are having a hard time unloading any equipment right now. If you intend to sell off the T-20 you might do just as well to make the trade.

    Peaveys are going up in value (15-20% per year)- watch eBay. Many are getting into collecting them

    My fenders and warwicks are slow moving-have a waiting list for USA peavey
