at home sick today so i'm posting everything that's going on in my bass world........ this weekend i traded my american p-bass deluxe for a hartke 2000 head with a 4X10 transporter bottom. my current combo amp is getting a little tempermental so i felt i needed a backup. i'm happy with the trade. Although i didn't research it all that well i think they're both pretty much equal value, and i was having a really rough time selling the p-bass. seems people don't wanna drop more than $500 for that. it originally went for 1000, now i think you can buy em new for around $850. did a search for the hartke stuff and just got a lot of mixed opinions from them being semi-professional gear, to them being totally the shi*t. I kinda dig the aluminum cone sound, a little nervous about blowing a speaker though as I've done it 2X in a studio we used to rehearse in. i'm going to attribute that to EVERONE ELSE having abused the amp . any thoughts?
