Okay, So I Need a new amp, And I dunno Which head to get, but I'm Pretty Sure on the Cab...An Ashdown MAG 410 (4X10)

And I'm Tossing up between A new Ashdown Mag 300 For $699 AU

Or a Used Trace Elliot Trace 300 / GP7 For $650 AU

The Price Diff isn't really an Isuue

I Play Grunge/Prog And Have An Ibanez Iceman Bass (The 2008 Special editon)

Opinions?

I would get the Trace Elliot. That is a pretty good price for one, and they are very good amps. Then again, I would rather use a Behringer than an ashdown, but that is just me.
Gear:
Ibanez RG4EX1
Laney VC50
Roland Cube 30X
Boss MD-2

Ibanez GSR200

I love Ashdown but a used TE will be of much higher quality than a MAG.

You're saying Ashdown is better quality than Trace Elliot? Even during Trace's dark days, their amps were made in the UK and not in China like the MAGs are now.

Theyre new price is also four times the Ashdowns, and this translates into quality.

Why don't you trust used gear? If you buy sensibly, checking it all out as it goes, you'll never have a problem. But you will have to accept that someone else has used it before you.

Nope, The Place I'm Buying from Doesn't Have one

Thanks for the Opions, I think the TE would be a better option, but you just don't know with used stuff...
And It's too far away to try.
