Official Bass Rigs Good Deal/Bad Deal Sticky!


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to good deals/bad deals on these forums. A vast majority of the deals made using these forums go down with no problems at all. Occasionally we do get a bad one though. Please, if you have a beef with someone, don't post their personal information on these forums without their consent! All that's necessary is "I had a good deal/bad deal with (insert username)."

 

Thanks!

wlfgnplyr is local to me- i saw an add for his MF280B cab on craigslist and offered him my jackson DK2M for it.

we ended up trading- i got the cab home,opened it up, and it's loaded with 4 celestion "CRATE V12L" speakers

I'm guessing that's a bad thing? :idk:

just a reminder to everyone- user name stevestevens (changed from wlfgnplyr) traded to me a marshall mode four cab which he assured me was loaded with mode four V30 speakers for my jackson DK2M- when i got it home, i opened it up and found it loaded with crappy old CRATE speakers. not only did he refuse to trade back, but he now lists my name as a "hellish transaction" in his sig.

(i dont see what was so hellish about it to him other than i exposed his dishonorable trading practices to several people)

BAD DEAL with surfingbird. Surfingbird is selling multiple Madison E600 bass amps claiming the filter caps are bad in them. I bought one of these from surfingbird. I can't say whether or not the filter caps are bad because I couldn't get that far. When I received the amp I found it was missing all of the screws that hold the cover on. All of the screws that hold the pc board in are missing. The preamp tube is missing. A capacitor (not a filter cap) is broken in two with the metal showing. The fuse was blown. The direct out pot is bent and there was no chord supplied. When I replaced the fuse (with the correct fuse of course) and powered the amp on, sparks literally flew out of this amp. Who even knows what other problems it has. I have a feeling I am stuck with this amp but hopefully I am proven wrong. I have yet to hear back from SurfingBird.
