 bass clarinet shopping

I am looking at getting a bass clarinet. I would like something substantial, but not necessarily a professional quality low-C instrument (I don't want to spend that much money). The two basses that I've found that seem as if they would fit the bill are the Buffet 1180 and the Amati 692. I've been trying to do some research on the Amati, but it's been a bit difficult since it isn't very prevalent (at least in the US). I was able to find some useful information in past postings on this board, but I was wondering what everyone thought would be the better buy between these two. I do want to keep in mind resale value, since I am not absolutely positive that I will keep it forever.
