I'd love to go to a store and try amps but you wouldn't write such an advice
if you knew Finland: only 5 millions inhabitants.
When you find some used Ampeg or Trace Elliot gears to buy, you can call
your friends to celebrate the event! You can only celebrate but not buy
because, even used, they are very expensive.
I'm from Paris where I got used to find all I needed but now, I have to deal
with the finnish desert. I can only try to imagine the sound of an Ampeg,
Eden, Ashdown... I don't like riddles but what can I do?
In Finland, I can mainly test Hartke, Yorkville, Kustom, Hughes&Kettner...
got the picture?... You wouldn't believe...
Now you know why I wrote this thread.
