I found a really good condition SWR Stereo amp and an Ampeg SVT-IIP preamp for $525. Is This a good deal? It comes with a roadcase and stuff, I play Punk so I need something nice and punchy.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Funny, I almost bought that preamp, but decided against it (I live near Detroit as well).

It's a great setup; I'd recommend it. Those early Ampeg preamps sound a lot different than the newer models. It's more of a gritty, vintage tone. And that's a hell of a good price for it; normally the IIP preamps go for nearly $600 on ebay. I decided against it because I just bought a Warwick bass, and I don't even have $200 to throw at new toys :p

Sorry for the double post, but can anyone else offer me some other information or opinions? This will be a big purchase for me.

$525 for ~850W of power is quite a reasonable deal, however, keep in mind that those models are quite 'old'.

The nice thing about stereo power amps is that you can use the same cab and get totally different power ratings, depending on how you hook it up (into one power amp, mono-bridge).

That not bad in my opinion
i play punk and ampegs are great for that,
SWR are great so seems like a smashing deal!
