Sup guys, its me, Mr. Streets.

And wow, I think that I stumbled on top of a PRIMO deal. The guy at my local guitar in Brooklyn has offered me:



Its a used 5150 II head with a fender 4x12" with one of the speakers having a ripped cone.

I currently have a b-52 at 212 (lol read sig) and I like it. But I feel its laking a bit.

He's selling the combo of the head and the cab for $470 because whenever I'm in the store I always sell a schecter with him (I don't even ****ing work there lolol).

Ideas? He also says the tubes are just about a year old.

I can trade in the b-52 for 500 or so dollars.

Nothing - sell the cab for $200 or so. The head alone is worth a lot more than you're paying for both.

Yeah, buy them both together for sure. When you get home, sell the cab.

and get something that will suit the amp better, not saying the Fender is necesarily a bad cab but I don't think it would be a good fit for the 5150 head.

Assuming it's just a tear and all the paper is still there, you can use rubber cement to repair it.
And zachman won't say anything. He got banned in the User Elimination thread.

TS: Definitely go for it. Even if you get it and you don't like it, you can always just sell it for more!! You're getting a FANTASTIC deal on this!!

Well never mind. Parents won't let me buy used...

I feel sorry for you. That's a killer deal. If it works, why should they care? It's an investment, and one that sounds good at that.

^You parents are communist pigs that need to have control over their child to get horny?

Used gear is nothing to be afraid of. People buy used cars all the time and they break down more often than a halfway decent quality amp. Plus, the 5150 is a beast of durability and sound.

Tell them that it is worth it. That its an amazing deal for a great amp.
Let them come read this thread.

Half(maybe more) of the people on this forum, myself included, would kill for a deal like that.

Well maybe they're worried about the size of the cab. Tell them you don't plan on using it and just sell it and get an Avatar 2X12.

I have the same problem with my parents, I got outmaneuvered by them though so don't let that happen. Tell them you are working on getting a band together, just find a couple of people to jam with then after a couple "practices" you realize you want to go different directions so you split up.

this is good advice, but you don't have to split up with them. Having people to play with is a great way to grow musically.

Well you could always point out that you have bought new amps, two Bugeras if I remember correctly, that didn't last a week and just because something is new doesn't necessarily make it better.

well id take that deal, even though im a big B-52 advocate..


by the way i highly doubt that u can get $500 for ur 212 since GC is selling them for under $400 new

I have the extended play warranty, i won't get back the 69 dollars for that but I would get the full price of the amp plus tax back.

Make sure they understand that it's not any more powerful than your B-52, and it will sound much better. If that doesn't fly, do the "band" idea.
