    For sale is a GREAT small pairing for a lightweight, light-duty rig. I just don't have a use for such a small setup with my gigs these days. Why a different city? They're at my parents' place taking up space in the basement and they want that space back now that I've been out of the house many years :smug:

    [del]$300[/del] $260 for both, not interested in splitting or trades
    Local pickup only in STL


    Portabass 250
    The PB250 has been my main amp for many years. It is in good condition, never had an issue with it. Full of great features (see the blurb from the manual below). On the cleaner side of the Ampeg tone, but Ampeg tone still there. Sounded great with both electric and upright. 250W @ 4 ohms, 150W @ 8 ohms.

    PB250 Features:
    • MDT POWER AMP: Micro Dynamic Technology amplifier circuitry provides maximum power in a small lightweight package -- the efficiency of this design eliminates the need for heavy heat sinks, transformers and filter capacitors
    • FOUR BAND ROTARY EQ: Four bands of equalization and shift controls for the Low and High Mid provides optimum tone control
    • ULTRA LOW, ULTRA HIGH SWITCHES: Enhances flexibility and tone control
    • EFFECTS LOOP: Send and Return jacks are combined with an Effects Blend control for virtually
    noise-free use of your favorite effects
    • TRANSFORMER BALANCED LINE OUTPUT: XLR jack with level control, ground lift, and a pre/post-EQ switch -- for patching into house consoles, mixing boards, or external power amplifiers
    • SPEAKON® AND 1/4" SPEAKER OUTPUT JACKS: Compatible with either type of connecting cable
    • MADE WITH PRIDE IN THE U.S.A.
    • 12.5"W x 3.75"H x 10.5"D
    • 14 lbs.

    Portabass 110
    The PB110 was a bought as a back up cab shortly before I started college several years ago, but never used out of the house and was left behind to gather dust. Again, see features below. There are some white marks on the back corners, otherwise clean cab.

    PB110 Features:
    • Neodymium speaker magnets for greatly reduced weight
    • Loaded with a 10" speaker and horn
    • Cab constructed of Italian poplar plywood for combination of resonance and light weight
    • HF variable L-pad control
    • 200W RMS handling
    • 300W program handling
    • 1/4" and Neutrik Speakon connectors
    • 15"W x 15"H x 12"D
    • 20 lbs.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. If I were to go through the trouble of shipping, I'd probably ship it out to me. :D

    Perfect low-mid bumpage :D Really useful low end control with switchable 100Hz or 40Hz level control. Wish more heads had these EQ points.

    Well I'm here, but the amp and cab are back home and the cab is too big for a carry on. Otherwise I'd be playing it out here.

    I'll be back in STL around Thanksgiving, if that helps.

    Will split.

    Will trade for other things. MB200 maybe? Epiphone EB-0?
