I have been trying to sell a RoadKing half stack for several months and yesterday I thought I had it sold.
They guy picked up the head and immediately changed his mind and walked away.
Said it was way too heavy.
I don't know what he was expecting it to weigh.
It's a frikken 135 watt 4 channel head.
What did he expect?
Anyway, he walked away from the deal so I took it to AXE Music in Edmonton thinking I'd trade on something.
What they offered me was absolutely ridiculously low.
The guy said they don't offer much on trades because they don't want to sell used gear.
"Fine, fuck you" was what went through my mind.
I had never tried to trade at AXE before.
Now I know.
Don't go there if you want to trade.
They have competitive pricing on new gear but they won't give you shit for your gear.
I'm serious. It was really low ... like about 30% of what they would resell it for.
I knew L&M typically gives 70% so I drove over there.
My RoadKing is in such pristine condition and the guy liked it so much he gave me even more than the normal 70%.
Half stacks have a limited market and I've been trying to sell for some time so I took the loss and used the proceeds to buy this little gem.
I plugged it in and took it for a spin last night.
Really nice sounding little amp.
Half decent clean headroom when the clean side is set to 35 watts with the power scaling.
Nice and chimy with good balls down low.
I set the dirty side to 10 watts and it rips.
This one's a keeper.
