    Just curious, since the F500 is essentially an F1 with added features, why would you be moving the F500 and not the F1 to replace as a backup?

  4. The F1 which has a less sophisticated mid EQ section, is easier for me to manipulate at the gig. Plus, between the two heads, the F500 is in slightly better condition. My F1 has some fan noise that doesn't bother me, but might others, so I went with selling the F500

    I certainly hear you on the F500 controls. I have one as well, along with my Carvin BX500. I switch off, so either one are backups to the other. :) These are great sounding amps, and a bit hard to find. Good luck with your sale. Good price on that as well, my friend. ;)
