Ok gonna give you the short verison. My cousin which lives out of state called me today about trading for my Mark IV head and 4x12. He owns a Triple Rec with mesa 4x12, Hughes and Kettner Triamp MK II with matching 4x12, and a Diezel Herbert with matching cab.
His really been wanting to pick up the MarkIV but noone has it locally for him to purchase. He had a really bad ordeal with a g-force unit on ebay and vowed never to go that route again. So instead of waiting for 3 to 4 months on Mesa he called me up and asked me to do a straight trade.
He wants to trade me his Triamp MKII with the 4x12 cab for my MarkIV and Cab. He bought the Triamp and cab brand new 7months ago and he said its still in mint condition.
Basically after telling him no several times, that I have only had the Mark IV for a few months and absolutely love it. He said, he would trade me the Triamp Head and Cab for just the MarkIV head and that he would also drive it down here to me (about 4hr drive)!
Guys I know alot of you have traded and swapped and sold more gear then I could imagine, and probably regretted a few of them. What do you think about this trade? The MarkIV is my first tubed head ive bought, would it be a mistake to make this trade?
I know nothing about the MK2 at all, except the little bit of searching Ive done tonight on it. My cousin said for the cost of the amp and cab I'd be stupid not to! And the only reason his offering is because we are family.
I also knew nothing about mesa amps until I came to this board and read all the helpful posts, which made me make the decision to get one.
So any input you guys could give me would help out alot!
