    I use mine as a practice rig only. I purchased it 18 months ago as a floor model. It has lived up to it's reputation for reliability. I only replaced the tube. $300 plus actual shipping obo.

    Same as the Traynor DynaBass 400H

    Negative. I have only moved it a few times and I used a carry on piece of luggage that is soft and has wheels. Fit nicely.

    These heads are killer! I gigged with one for years before I switched to the micro amps. Almost seems like a cross between an SVT 3Pro and a GK 701RB. Solid state punch with some tube warmth. GLWS

    Only trades I'd be interested in would be a trade up to Markbass or GK combo or a GK Head or Genz Benz Streamliner 900.
