As of about 6-8 months ago life was getting hectic and I really didn't have the time nor drive to play much. I had been out of my old band for a while and just didn't want to play much.
A couple months back I decided that I most likely will not be joining any bands soon and I will just play guitar for myself. I work nights and that makes a band almost impossible. So I figure I can always just jam with some friends and write my own stuff just for me.
After deciding this, I was kicking around the idea of selling my Marshall JCM2000 DSL100/1960A half stack. I listed it on here to see if there was any interest and I got a PM from someone wanting to trade me a Vox ad60vtx (1 12' combo) with a vc-12 foot pedal. The amp sells for $700ish (new) and the footswitch is over $200(new). The guy lives pretty close (2-3 hours) and I am heavily considering trading my head for this set up.
I would like an amp modeling amp, be it this or a line 6 flextone III, but I don't think the option to trade it in will come soon. I was considering taking my head to GC and seeing what they will give me, but I'm sure that is a waste of my time.
1.)Is it a fair trade? I know my head goes for $1500 new, which almost tells me it isn't worth it to trade for an amp that is $700+$200(vc12). I played the amp at gc, and I was really impressed.
2.) If I were to join another band, would this 1 12'' amp be enough to practice with and possible play out? I will still have my 1960A cab, but Im not sure if it will work.
3.) Would you do it?
Sorry this is such a long post, but I am confused.
