My friend decided he wants a half stack, and with my fine GG&A prowess I decided to help him out. After going through numerous heads and cabs, we've decided on a bogner alchemist with an avatar 4x12 contemporary cab. He wants to buy new, and we did some price shopping, but we ran into a problem.

Musician's Friend - $1250

Best Buy - $1100

Music Power - $900

Why such drastic differences in price? GC had one posted as BLEM for $1100, so that's a theory, but I figured I'd put it up to you guys.

I guess music power is just able to undersell the competition with that amp? I have no idea that is pretty significant.


edit: that looks like a damn sexy amp dude, nice choice.

Great amp.

As far as the price, some places cut deals with the manufacturer's warehouses so they get them for cheaper as an 'official retailer.' Basically, this just means that they've signed documents that gaurantee they'll carry the company's product for x amount of time.

That'd be my guess as to why, aside from the blem.

I'm just concerned that musician's friend, a big-ass dealer, is selling it for more than music power, who i've never heard of. BUT music power also sells rectifiers and 6505 and the like.

and thanks for the compliments on the amp. i play bass in the band so i can hear it

Best Buy will match and beat the price usually, as long as they have it in stock...
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
