    Never say never, right? Sometimes, you just have to let go. :bawl:

    Good cosmetic condition, functions perfectly, sounds fantastic. The power tubes are a recent set of JJ's. $700 shipped FedEx CONUS. No trades on this one. Rack case not included. I'll get more pics this weekend.

    :)
    The D-180 gets much dirtier - much, much nastier, if you want.
    Still very quick & bright, but not quite as glassy as the Buster, IMO.

    My old amp. Great great tube amp. If I wasn't using my Prodigy exclusively, I wouldn't hesitate buying this back. Bump for a good dude.

    If I didn't already own one, shipping would be doable thanks to relatively low weight. Might be an Aussie with cash. They are easy to convert PT to 240v supply.

    My brother - you speak truth - the D180 is super-versatile. In addition, the combination of an L2000 going into this beast is truly astounding (but you already know that).

    Unlike you, though, I haven't been able to bring myself to play it clean much - I slam the pre and crank it into power tube overdrive too. The pedals in my sig are there to take me to 11, 12, AND 13. You know - that extra push off the Cliff...

    Truly a sleeper amp deserving of a position in the pantheon of legendary all-tube bass amps.

    I get the sweetest EUB tone with mine, and rock out equally well. So versatile.

    It's just the way Boogie made em'. 400/400+ has both front and rear FX loops as well.

    I presume the front loop was meant for pedals and the rear loop is meat for rack stuff, just the keep the cabling neat.
