i just recieved the new musician's friend catalog in the mail and i'm pretty disgusted with the prices. it looks like i'll be buying alot of used gear from now on. for example, i can't justify paying $1600 for a new made in mexico "65 twin reverb amp when for a few hundred more i could purchase a victoria amp instead or any boutique amp for that matter. fender also wants $259 for their champion 600. i think peavey is one of the only companies that didn't raise their prices. soon we may not be able to afford good quality gear, especially in this economy. thanks for listening.
