Eventually I am going to need a real bass amp and I was wondering what I should buy. I'm not really looking for any specific answers right now I was just wondering is it safe to buy a used amp for cheap and have no warranty? I've seen 600 watt used carvin amps for $400 on eBay but I can't help being a little skeptical. I guess I'm asking would it be better to buy, say, a used 400 watt carvin for $300 or a new Ampeg amp with less watts and more money, but with a warranty and probably more reliability? ramble ramble ramble, I hope that makes sense.
