Good deal??

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  I have been offered a MarkBass rig for sale.  It's the CMD Mini 151p Combo and a New York 151 cab in great condition for £750.00.  No covers but only had very light use since new.  I know the new price and wondered if this set up is good for a classic rock band with two guitars and heavy drummer.

 

Cheers

ps.  I just want someone else to convince me to pull the trigger ha ha

Can't comment on value, but I wouldn't be wanting 15s for what you plan. Maybe a 15 and 210 but prob no 15s at all. Mind you I like 10s, the more the better !!

It will be awesome. I used two ny151 cabs under an orange terror and kept getting told to turn down even when it was as quiet as it would  go. 

Thunderous response it was thunderous. I also used the two 15s  under an old Trace Elliot and oh my what a sound 

I'm not trying to convince you, but if it's the 450w it will keep up with a heavy drummer no problem.

It's the 151p combo at 300w but has the 151 NY extension cab which takes it all up to 500w.

Sounds like a punchy little stack. Is it a good deal? I'm not qualified to say. The market is weird right now.

Doesn't sound that cheap, TBH, especially at this moment in time.

Are the older Italian, or newer Indonesian ones? Makes no odds in my experience, but may help you determine the age a little better.

The guy bought them new 3 years ago and they've not been gigged at all, present new price together is £1220 from GAK.  One has a cover and the other hasn't so that could be a bargaining tool.

If the new price is £1200, I'd be looking at offering around half that as a start price. £750 is too rich.

From what I've seen on the BC marketplace Markbass doesn't tend to hold much resale value, even the Italian stuff. so although 750 is not a bad price it doesn't strike me as much of a good deal.

I'd agree, once you walk out of the shop, irrespective of use,  they lose value. CMD 121P's ( of any origin) tend to go s/h for around £400 and the NYC cabs around £250. Don't know if the 15" equivalants are worth more but £600- £650 seems a fair price.

Well I got them for £650 today so they're going to get a good amount of use now!!

Nice deal. I used a markbass rig for many years in a classic rock setting. Very good kit IMO and ultra reliable IME.

That's a good deal indeed. I used to have the 12" equivalent rig which could handle almost any indoor gig. I imagine the 500 watts into two fifteens will be even more capable.
