My usual and regular check on CL tonight yielded this minty fresh unit for $175:
I have one of those and use it all the time! Love it. You pretty much stole that thing, too.
Ah....this little amp is everything that you have all been saying! What great tone for the home studio. I can't wait to try it for band practice. I'm happy to find one in perfect condition. Just how loud will this thing get?
Oh.....and it came with the perfect custom vinyl cover that it has lived in for the past ?? years, while it waited for me in a closet.
I have a 100-R, it's deceptively loud. If you're standing right in front of it and the sound is blasting past your ankles you might be disappointed in the volume. If you're standing 4-5 feet away it comes alive and does a good job of filling the room with sound.
It depends on how loud/what type of band you're in, but in the right situation it will shine!!!! Congrats!
P.S. first dibs if you ever decide to sell it! :-D
Jimmy......not a great photo to be pulling up here at work with people standing behind me.....LOL
Here is a nice B100R for sale:
Excellent score! That's my favorite amp. I find it to be not quite enough for most rock band gigs/practice but great for something like small blues band type gigs. That said, I have seen smaller touring acts with one of these babies mic'd.
Nice score...great sounding amps !
NICE! Killer amp, I love mine.
I had a B50R and absolutely loved it. For an even moderate band practice, though it wasn't even barely audible, even fully cranked. This is with drums and two electric guitars. If your band is all acoustic with a soft-hitting drummer, you might be able to get away with it, though. I couldn't, which is why I sold mine. Wish I would have kept it as a practice amp, though. Great tone
