: I'm looking at a used Fender RAD BASS amp 75 watts, it is a few years old and in ok shape. Sounds good. Does anybody know about these amps...example- good or bad? And what should I pay for it?

Bryan,
The RAD series came with either black or grey carpet covering, and for the price, their sound was excellent.

I've heard comments that favorably compared the RAD amps to ones that cost a *lot* more, so I'd say they're a good value. The one thing that might be a bit of a caveat was that they tended to be oriented a little bit towards metal tone, but not so much as to be useless for other styles.

From my understanding, after the RAD fad ran its course, Fender covered them with Tolex, and those became the BXR series.

Not sure about price, but offer something like $200-250 and see how that goes.

Hope that helps!

-Bob
