Lab Systems 1x15" 250 Watt Combo $$$?

Post by heythatsmatt » 28 Feb 2015, 17:21

Hey guys,

I'm looking into selling my lab combo but with so few of them moving around the market lately I have no reference point price-wise as to what kind of price I should be asking.

Any advice for a good asking price would be greatly appreciated, or better yet;
Has anyone seen one of these amps sell recently? If so, how much did it go for?

Also, if you happen to know anyone who may be in the market for a similar amp, please let me know.

Hi Matt & welcome to OzBass :)

Price enquiries are generally for supporting members - as a Moderator I can just move the thread across to classifieds or lock it once a price is chosen. As this is an uncommon item, I'll leave it up for a few days.

Fantastic little amps these. I used to have one and did some festival stages with it. Great warm sound with a P.

I think I sold it for about $600? but I wouldn't know what they go for these days. Maybe $500?

They are worth more than what people will pay, thats the downside. $500 or less was the figure i had in mind too Vin

The problem is the market is very depressed. I've got a 250b head I was thinking of selling a while back. It was recently serviced and it's pretty amazing. The going price for them on eBay and gumtree was just $150... Less than a dollar a watt. In the end I kept it. I figured a spare amp was more valuable to me than pocket change. The other thing you want to remember is, that combo is very conservatively rated. Think more like 400watts. ;)

Unless you really need the cash I would keep it. You'll probably never see another one again.

I have one that I purchased new around 99 - 01. Think i paid $1600, has a certain sweetness that I don't fancy saying good by to.

I have one of the 2x10 Combos; very underrated little Amp. I've seen them pop up from time to time over the years that I've owned it, all pretty much in the $450-$600 range. I seem to recall Tim saying that he produced two different versions of the Amp module in the 250 Combo (some changes to the preamp circuit if I remember correctly), so that could possibly affect the value as well.
