Ok I have a guy that wants to trade me his Randall RG50TC for my Marshall MG100HDFX half stack.

I havent played the amp yet but I guess I'm just wondering if this is a good deal and if so...should I trade him straight up or should there be some cash exchanged as well (in either direction). The Randall looks like it goes for about $550-$600 new and he says its in almost new condition. My Marshall goes for $600 head and cab and definitely is in brand new condition.

Now I know everyone and their brother hates the Marshall MG, and I didnt at the time that I bought it, but yeah now i do. I should have listened to you guys here lol.

For the love of god, trade!

The halfstack is worth less used than the Randall is and the Randall will destroy it in sound quality, that guy is an idiot

Also thank the guitar gods for giving you the ideal opportunity to banish the MG.

Dont think your going to find anybody who is going to tell you that you will be getting the crappy end of the trade.

It's good, far better than the MG at metal. One of the best high gain amps at lower budgets.
You can probably even convince him to give you 50 bucks or so in addition to the amp.


Screw the $ 50. Get rid of the MG before he realizes the error of his decision. He may balk when you hit him with money request and back out.

haha don't let him know where you live! cuz in a couple months he'll find out from someone else how dumb of a trade he made, and then be like, "i'm gonna stalk him and play the sympathy card and say it's still mine." i'm sure that's how a lotta novice traders would act.

whatever you do, make sure he knows that the trade is FINAL. get it in writing to be safe .

^You got very lucky man, even if you don't like that amp you'd still be able to sell it for more than the MG.

dont worry, ive made a lot of the decisions ive made buying stuff for this hobby i love out of total noobishness (new word?) hahaha....
#32
I hope you get that Randall, it will sound much better. The cleans are pretty good and most of all the amp's distortion wil be usable unlike the MG.
Good luck!
#33
It would be funny if the other guy came across this thread... :P oh geez
#34
Make sure he really wants to do it. If he thinks it's going to be better you might want to be the better man and tell him about it or at least let him try it out. Good deals are good deals but doing what is right isn't always easy.

I'm sure he wants it just because it's a Marshall Stack. If he's dead set on it, I would go for it.

Oh man I cant believe I got it! He even tried my MG out and was like "well the distortion isnt as good as mine...but ill take it!" Lol I love this freakin amp I cant believe he traded me!

Edit: He does play through a giant Vox pedal, so I told him the amp distortion doesnt matter and he agreed. I do feel a lil bad but I got a great amp out of the deal so I'm happy

Wow, that's awesome, great to hear. It's his own fault since he tried the amp and everything.

How do you like the randall?

The Liberal Elitist comment in your sig makes me want to advise you to keep the MG.

But ya, tradez nao plz.

Sorry to bring politics in to this, but are you one of those people who believes Obama is an elitist?

Lets put it this way.

One candidate was raised by a single mother living off of foodstamps. His mother died and he had to live with his grandparents. He worked his way up to a University education and Harvard and became the president of the Harvard Law Revue. He then decided to work as a community organizer rather than for Wall Street.

The other has 10 houses valued at over 13 million dollars, dumped his wife to marry an heiress, and had this to say to american workers

Its like night and day compared to that Marshall. I LOVE the distortion on it, and actually was very impressed with the cleans, I didnt hear anything in particular about the cleans so I wasnt sure what to expect, but they sounds waaaaaaaay better than my marshall. I love it already even after 20 mins
