    I'm pretty new in the world of bass guitar.

    I found this amp for about 660$ (500€) in a second hand shop, does it sounds like a good deal to you ?

    It's very hard to find reliable informations on the web, and most of what the salesman told me was wrong. So actually, this is what I'm pretty sure of :
    -280W RMS, 580W peak (I'm not sure what that means)
    -4x8" Celestion speakers

    I liked this amp, but don't really know anything about it, so I don't know what it's really worth.

    As a comparison, I tried a bunch of new amps, both combos and stacks. For this price, the one I prefered was an Ashdown Mag 300 EVO II (head), with a 4x10" cabinet.

    Do you think for the price, it is better to get the Trace Elliot second hand or the Ashdown new ?
