New amp, suggestions and offer for private sales

Hey guys, I know that you all want to hound on me for not searching for a similar thread, but I also want to know someother things.

 

I currently own two amps, sorta. As some may recall, my friend had borrowed my crate BX-100 and refused to give it back.

 

Eventually, he sold it (so he says) and gave me $250 for it. Well, he is no longer my friend.

 

However, I am now looking to replace what was my small gig amp with one that would be more suitable for, say, Bar Mitzvahs.

 

My other amp, which is the only one I have know, is a BX-25.

 

I like the tone, sorta, but I wanna upgrade, now!

 

I hav thought about putting an Ampeg B-2R onto an Acme B2 or another 200-300 watt 4 ohm cab.

 

First, I would like suggestions or ideas, but since that can be searched on, my other issue arises.

 

I was also thinking about getting some of it used, since other than that 250 I got, I am low on the greenbacks.

 

I could purchase it all new, but would rather not if I can.

 

For anyone selling amps and cabs along these lines, please respond with your gear you wanna sell and your prices.

 

For the reason I don't like ebay, well, let's just say I don't wanna have a repeat of when my uncle sold his car and got stiffed, sorta.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

and peaceOUT,

 

Germain

I own an Ampeg B2R and it plays through an Ampeg 4x10 cab at 8 ohms. This is rated at 200w. Another 8 ohm cab will make it 350w. The B2R was purchased from Ebay at $350 used. They are $550 new. The cab I was $330 used purchased at a local music shop. This rig sounds great with my G&L L2000. I had no issues with the head from ebay, it was packaged fine. Hope this bit of info can help your thought process.

Sorry to hear your story, Germain. I have a BX100 which I'm running thru a Peavey 4x10 extension cab, as well as its own 15"... it's a GREAT amp (which, truth be told, I didn't expect from Crate).

 

If I hear of anyone selling something good for cheap, I'll let you know.

I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist.

 

This ain't no track meet; this is football.

thanks for the reply's so far, guys

 

do you, coyote, know anything about using the bx-25 to power another amp?

 

also, i would like to have the head and cab separate, so another bx-100 isnt too optimal, but may be what i end up doing, possibly

 

peaceOUT,
