I love this head but the Jule Monique preamp is my tone. So much in fact that I have ordered a 2nd.
This amp sounds killer, but I really need to move some gear as I just have too much stuff.
These are very rare and sought after By bassists and guitarists. It is an all tube 200 watt amp that was produced in the early-mid 1980's and was the precursor to the Mesa Bass 400+. I say these are fairly rare as there was only approx 800 made. They are highly sought after and was used by Cliff Burton of Metallica. This was one of the very first few made ( serial #027) and apparently that with a serial number this low it would have been a custom order and one of the first produced (1980 likely).
This amp is very unique in the fact that it has two inputs and you can cascade the two inputs together so you can have either a normal gain through input one or cascade the two inputs together in input two and get extra overdrive (lots of info on here about this feature). You can also use this as a guitar amp and have a 200 watt beast.
In great shape with a little bit of rack rash from being used over the last 30 years. It is crazy loud loud and sounds huge. It has a great natural overdrive. A new set of power tubes (JJ 6L6) were installed late last year by the previous owner and an adjustable bias mod installed by a top tech.
I had this amp given the once over by my tech recently and it was given a clean bill of health. No issues at all and ready to gig.
Fantantic, rare, amp that sounds awesome. These rarely come up for sale.
No trades please.... I have to pay for my Monique and a Fodera.
I will ship (on your dime), but would prefer a local Toronto deal. I will be in Buffalo, Syracuse, Hoboken, NJ and New York City in March and could deliver for anyone willing to wait 6 weeks or so.
$725 plus shipping. PayPal ok.
I have a brand new (1 month old and mint) 4U Gator rack case that I might be willing to sell with the head as well.
Thanks for looking!
