I would really like a 3x10 Bandmaster but the only ones I can find are over $2000 and I'm just not willing to pay that much. I'm thinking under $1500, preferably $1200, preferably $1000.

I may end up doing this eventually.Why not just save up and wait until a used Victoria pops up? If you get a kit it's not going to be worth anything to anyone. At least if you buy the Victoria at a good price you could play it as long as you would like and then sell it for the same price.
I bought a Victoria Super last summer for $1200, I kept 2 months and then sold it on Ebay for $1470, it's nice when you can do things like this.
you can get a kit for 565 from weber although i wouldn't recommend it for someone who doesn't have previous experience. but for 415 you can get a champ kit first, learn how to put an amp together, spend the 565 on the super kit, and for under 1000 you get a fun yet addicting experience and 2 amps.If you get a kit it's not going to be worth anything to anyone.
See this is what I'm thinking. I'm graduating from school here in a few months and once I have a full-time job I'm hoping I won't have to sacrifice my current gear for new stuff. But on the otherhand the prospect of having an amp almost for free (buying used and selling later) is nice too.A lot can be said for buying new warranted amps vs used.
Victoria's 5E7 is absolutely beautiful. Richter now has her new high power 310 5E7 out a few hundred less than Vic, and there are a lot of vey reputable builders out there that assemble and upgrade kits at great prices.
I would save a while longer and get one of the better ones, but then again, once I let the moths out of my wallet to buy an amp, I never re-sell it. I'll let the kids do that when Im gone and they sell off the estate.
Yes, that EBay listing is the one she has for sale now. As one of the lucky few who owns one of Sara Richter's 5E7 amps, I must say it is a superb investment. I have the head version, but am confident that the combo she's now selling is at least as toneful. I would have spoken up earlier, but the price is out of your asking range.I can't seem to find the Richter amps. The website is down and the only one I could find googling is one on ebay for $2500!
I was checking those out but he doesn't make a Bandmaster/5E7 unfortunately. I like all the options he offers though.
Nope,, not even close to the same circuit.That's not the same circuit though is it? Blackface vs Tweed.
