Well I'm thinking about selling my new rig

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by learning_towalk, Jun 16, 2004.

  1. that's right I saved up for 7 months to buy this rig and now I'm thinking about selling it...it sounds GREAT but between my bad back,bad knees,and bad shoulder lugging around this much gear isn't fun....I'm really thinking about getting an eden head and an avatar 210 and SB115 (or all eden stuff if I could score it cheap enough)...how much do you think I can get for my rig since I have all of the original boxes/documentation and have only gigged it once

    Excel 8 space rack>
    Furman rr15nl>
    BBE 362>
    Presonus Bluemax Compressor>
    Sansamp RBI>
    rack spacer/vent>
    Carvin DCM1500>
    Avatar B410
    and all connecting cables (fender electrovolt all through it)

    retail on it is over 2000 bucks (retail, not market price)...I've got about 1400 into it...

    Look into a Mesa Walkabout Scout combo. I was lugging around a 130 pound Ampeg pr410 cab and an SVT head and a box of cables, pedals and my bass etc. I sold it all bought the combo and an Incase gig bag. Now I can carry all my cables pedals etc in the gig bag in one hand, and the combo in the other hand and away I go. Makes gigging way more fun. :hyper:

    Why not put the RBI/Carvin in a roller rack and swap the Avatar 410 for a couple of 210's? Or spend $50 on a nice Dolly with inflatable tires...

    Quick answer on price is whatever it cost new, used it will sell for 60-70% of that.

  6. I thought about a dolly but I have to lug it up and down a flight of stairs....ergo it would still be a hassle....so I'm still thinking about what to do.

    I wouldn't recommend moving heavy objects down a flight of stairs, dolly or not. If it slips or the cab frees itself from the dolly you could cause some serious injury to yourself or others.

    Ok, I'll revise my suggestion...

    $60 for a nice dolly with inflatable tires and a couple of good ratcheting tie-downs.
