Can someone tell me what my amp is worth?

I've got a Fender Rumble 100 (the old black one) 1x15 and was wondering what I could get out of it. Thinking about pricing it at $200. Is it worth more or less?

I've seen new ones on ebay go for $199, so I'm inclined to think you'd be asking too much. But I suppose it depends on how old it is, what condition it's in, if there's a collector's market for it…

I think your best chance would be to check with any local privately owned/indie (read: non-chain) shops in your area, talk to the owners about putting up a for sale flier. They're more likely to spread the word to people they know who might be interested in what you're offering, as opposed to chain shops whose focus is on pushing their own items. Just a thought.
I agree with LL, asking price for used good condition amps like yours are going somewhere around $100-$150 used. With the ability to get a new one for $200, I'm not sure you'll get asking price. Yet that information is based on gear in SW Ohio.

I'll give you $41 for it but you have to post it to the UK and pay the duty.

Advertise it with (once played by John Quackenbush III - historical increase in value, so asking $200.)

People will be like oh woo, John Quackenbush… but between you and me we'll know we just made that name and story up.

John Quackenbush 111 was born in Boise, Idaho in 1937 and started playing bass at the age of ten, in a band with his two older brothers, James, 12, guitar and Maurice 14, drums. In 1955 he was doing session work for various record studios in Memphis, Tennessee and, although not credited, played bass on ‘That’s Alright Mama' for up and coming new boy Elvis Pressley. John died aged 22 at Clear Lake, Iowa, on the same plane as Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens, the virtually unknown Quackenbush listed with the ‘other’ fatalities

Marko is a genius.

Perhaps Marko and I should go into business. We can spray paint asprin pills purple and sell them as Ebola treatments in Africa. I'll go buy up some asprin, Marko you go get some paint.
