    Newer version of SM-900 - hybrid tube/ss amp. Purchased new in 2003.

    Power Handling: Bridge/Mono Mode: 900 Watts @ 4 Ohms, Stereo Mode (per side): 400 Watts @ 4 Ohms

    She's got some rack rash, but her face is pretty. She's only been gigged a handful of times, otherwise lived in the studio.

    One of the white EQ knobs disappeared -- they're two stage, it just pops inside the outer one. GC can get you these for a couple bucks, I have a different one in there that I've been using just fine. Not wanting to wait a few weeks for one to come in to sell. So, here it be:

    These go for $1799 new.

    PRICE DROP
    $650 shipped

    NO TRADES!! Sorry guys. Need the cashish.
