Madness is once again running rampant among online retailers. To cut to the chase, www.samash.com is selling the Ashdown Electric Blue 130-15 bass amp for $559.00 - a good price. but... www.musicianfriend.com is selling the exact same amp for $399.00 - and that's just nuts. That's a $160.00 savings! What the Super size french fry is going on here? How do they do it? I have played through this amp about a month ago, and it sounds major good. I also played through the 130-12 combo, and personally liked it a little better; I just happen to prefer the sound of 12s. I was even considering selling my Bassman 60 for a second. Hey, I love this amp; it's just the right size between a small practice amp and a gigging size combo, and it's 60 watts going through a 12. I paid $400.51 for this last July. Now this Ashdown comes along at twice the power, with a 15 at the same price! I'm not gonna sell the Fender, I love it too much, besides, I have a 100 watt 1x15 Yamaha sitting around doing nothing. I must control the G.A.S urge. I want to get a fiver soon any way. Seriously though, if anyone out there is looking for a *VERY* good sounding medium power combo for a really good price, I highly recommend that you check this amp out. One other thing; when you go to the M/F site, you'll notice that the smaller amp, the 130-12 is $499.00 - $100.00 more! ??????? In the M/F paper catalog it says it's an intro offer, so think fast; will it be the weekend in the mountains with your girlfriend, or the amp? Remember, the amp CAN be shut off. Check it out guys, Mike J.
