Hi,

Hope this is the appropriate board... I have asked google this question in a few ways, but not found any good answer.

About 20 years ago I got a Peavey 212 Chorus from a place on Queen St that had rows of second hand amps stacked high.

The 212 is still awesome, but it's time for a new amp, and that place isn't there anymore...

Can anyone recommend somewhere which stocks a lot of secondhand amps? Does any such place exist anymore?

Thanks!

Cash converters etc occasionally have some. But they are usually not very good.

Trademe has sort of killed off the second hand shop market.

You'd most likely be better off just browsing trademe.

http://bungalowbills.com/index.php .... don't expect a bargain or much stock. as sop said TM look through the various cash convertors TM pages

Also hit up NZRSmatt or NZRSdave on here because they will do you great deals on new stuff ..... there are so many great new lower end amps out there now man

Without knowing price range, type, I'd say AmpShop too.

Thanks everyone, I suspected as much, but thought it worth asking at least.

It's a case of technology making things worse in my opinion.

TradeMe is great for buying some second hand books or new cupboard handles, but I'm not so keen on bidding on an amp having never heard it.

I guess it would be possible to ask a question and get the sellers details ( against TradeMe TOS? ) and then go ( probably other side of auckland ) to try it out, but that's really not the same as sitting in a shop plugging in and comparing.

No. Just a joke following the question on his year old pickup thread.
