Is it crazy that this person is asking $650 for the 401 combo and roadcase?

If your username is a reference to what I think it is, then get looking for 2nd hand Laney amps, specifically VH & GH series heads. Not sure on the availability or second hand price over in the USA, but from what they go for over here in the UK, 600 should get you a nice 2nd hand Laney head and a decent 2x12 cab.

VH100R - a beast from $450-500 if you're patient. I also like the Bogner Alchemist for the stuff you play.

Save a bit more so you can get a nice 212.

You mean like this?

Yeah, Mike used a VH100r, and Durose used a GH100l, but I know the GH is a bit more affordable. I wanted to go for Durose's since I might be a single guitarist and he was the "lead" guitarist, but I REALLY loved the sound of Mike's single coil cleans as well as his heavy riffing. A good Laney would be my "dream" choice, but I couldn't really find anything Laney on Craigslist. :/

You know there is this thing called the internet where you can buy things, you don't have to be restricted to CL

It's a little over budget, and the shipping isn't actually 80 bucks if you call them

Also, use the Look Up link in my sig to find gear. I just found this doing that.

Las Vegas isn't that far away is it? Not sure which amp he's talking about either.

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/msg/3236045178.html

Here is an LC30. Not that familiar with them.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/msd/3224445873.html

Here is a VC30 in LA

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sg...3188477934.html

Half Stack in Phoenix

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/msg/3182473352.html

just for example

Yeah, I'm just a bit restricted with choices since PayPal is being a bitch with me at the moment, but I would have thought buying an amp without actually trying it out would be a bit sketchy.

I think if you're patient enough to find a good deal and jump on it when it comes along, you'll be fine. I also think that if you score yourself a 2nd hand Laney, you'll be really, really happy with it. Just be patient, and trawl as many sites as you can, craigslist, ebay, 2nd hand sections of guitar shop websites ...

Btw, would 100 watts be too much for someone who will only be doing house shows and small venues? I heard tube amps sound good when they're almost at their peak. And I googled "Laney VH100r combo" but nothing came up. This might be a different model mislabeled. Or wrong picture or somethin'.

I don't know what that is, but I'm pretty sure it's not a VH100r. I don't think they come in combos. Maybe it's a VC? Call them up and tell them to fix the info. *it's probably not 100w though.

I think the VC's a good amp. Get that or the DSL.
100 watts is usually loud but you'll be able to play it at quiet volumes. I'm not sure how good it will sound, but you'll be able to get something as long as they have master volume controls.

Try to test the amps out before you buy them.

Tube amps don't need to be played loud to sound good, I can run my 100w tube amp at bedroom levels just fine. Wattage is a measure of headroom, not volume.


I'd say a Laney VH100r would be a good choice but that picture is not showing a VH100, but a VC30.

yeah, originally I thought that it was a combo version, but with further research that doesn't exist. Don't get that one, it's a bad price.

311: I'm not sure the vc30 or lc30 are what he wants, I wasn't that fussed on the LC i tried, and the vc30 is very nice, but maybe a bit on the vintage side of thing.

Either is tons better than a hot rod deluxe, though- but yeah a gh or vh would be better.
