Hi everyone,

 

I'm fairly new around here, I've posted a few things back a couple months ago, but not much since then.

I have a quick question for all of you.

I have the opportunity to buy a used AG50DS2 for less than an AG15 is new.
The only problem is that the mic channel doesn't work on it.  The guitar channel works fine and the speaker is good to go as well.
I will be using it at home and possibly as a stage monitor, but can't forsee my self needing to put vocals through it anytime soon.

Would anybody else pull the trigger on the deal, or would you stay away?  Why/Why not

Thanks to all for any info/feedback!!

Ultrasound is a very popular unit. I would continue the search and pass on a non functional one. They should be available on a lot of the forums, excellent amps.

I own an AG50DS2, and it is odd, but you have to have a chord plugged into the guitar channel, or the mic channel does not work.  I bought one over the internet, and thought the same thing.  I had the bright idea to pull up the info. on the Ultrasound website, and that is what I found out.  http://www.ultrasoundamps.com/pdfs/AG-50DS2-100DS2.pdf Check it out, and hopefully that is the reason it seems to not work.  If you can get it for a good price I would go for it.  They are very nice amps.

What he said.

Also, the folks at Ultrasound are pretty good about fixing them.  If you are up to the hassle of sending it in, you could buy it cheap, send it in and still get a good deal on a decent amp.

Thanks for the input!

That's very interesting and I will have to check that out.
I'm torn because I know how nice they are.  I also kind of figured if I am willing to buy an AG-15 new which only has the single channel, then why wouldn't I buy this nicer amp for less with only a single channel!

Thanks again
