Default What is a good price?

I'm looking to get into kegging, and was just wondering: what would be a decent price for a used 8 faucet tower? It's ceramic, 2 years old, and in decent shape.

Is it just the ceramic tower or are there faucets/beer lines/etc included as well?

Faucets run $30 each, so I'd say at least $150.

New Ceramic towers are very expensive. Honestly though, the material the tower is made out of is pretty irrelevant. If you like the way the tower looks and the price is acceptable, go for it. But if you are looking to save money, there is no magic to the faucets and tubing. If you can run a drill, you can do it yourself. There's lots of info around this site on different options and how-to.

I have a two tap ceramic tower. I paid $200 for it. It did not come with any faucets. I thought this was a very good price compared to new ones.
