    OK guys- this one is a powerhouse!
    It delivers 450 watts @ 8 Ohms; 750 @ 4; and 1200 watts @ 2 ohms!!
    WAY more power than I need so I'm looking to move it out.

    Very flexible tone shaping- 3 rotary controls for bass, mid and treble and each of those dials is linked to a toggle switch that changes the frequency center for that control. The head also features a 9 band graphic EQ.

    Comes already equipped with rack ears and it also comes with the original 2 button footswitch and the footswitch cable. One button is a simple Mute function and the other is called "Solo" and when activated it provides a boost in gain coming into the power amp- perfect when you need to boost up your sound so a solo cuts through better. You can also use this feature via a button on the face of the amp.

    Appearance wise, the front panel looks perfectly good. There is a noticeable scratch across the top of the head but its purely cosmetic.

    One thing to note- the output is Speakon ONLY. Not a big deal because adapters are readily available. But I just want it out there that you cant use it with just a 1/4 inch cable.

    I prefer this to be a local sale because it would be kinda heavy to ship- the head weighs about 32 lbs. And also because I dont have suitable shipping materials which means FedEx Ground will be packing as well as shipping.
    That said, I would be willing to ship if we split the shipping costs.
    I can arrange to drive an hour or 2 to meet someone. Thats what I did when I bought this head several years back from a fellow TBer.

    Price is $[DEL]325[/DEL] 300- PRICE DROPand that figure does NOT include shipping.
    Payment via Paypal is preferred though I would also accept USPS Money Order.
    Here is a link to a stock picture. Mine looks like this except that there is the aforementioned scratch across the top.

    I'll try to post a couple of pics of mine that show the scratch. But we all know the next few days are going to be hectic so I dont know how soon I can get that done.

    I will take offers on the bass but no trades! I need to sell this outright,
    I'm GAS-free for now and I want to keep it that way!

    I let this sit on the sidelines because I thought I had a buyer. Havent heard from him recently so...


    And remember- its now OBO, and I can take a lower offer if I dont have to ship. I'm willing to drive an hour or so to take care of this in person.
    So CT, Southern NY, RI, Western MA and Northern NJ buyers- come and get it!!!!

    I've been out of touch WAAY to long on this.

    The head is still available and its $275 OBO...also now willing to consider trades.

    I can use a FRETTED 5- ESP LTD would be great especially if its a spalted top with lots of figure..
    or a Traben Chaos Core w/rosewood fb.

    On the 4 string side- Yamaha BB series- but must be 2 pickup models and I prefer active
    Also- Schecter Model T- preferably butterscotch...

    OR a good 2x10 cab or maybe a 1x15..
