    I got this on TB several years ago, and it served as my only amp head for that entire time. It's got some scratches on the top and bottom.

    The fan doesn't work. I don't know what happened, because I've never dropped it, but the fan is actually disconnected from the chassis itself. The amp has never had any problems because of this.

    500W @ 2 ohms, built in compressor, parametric EQ, digital amp 'models' (more like amp-style emulators), and you can save your settings to one of several banks for quick recall later. One of the first class D all-digital heads, weighs right around 12 lbs. I think.

    More info here.

    These don't come up too often, so pricing it's hard, but let's say $195 shipped CONUS (int'l at your cost/ risk).

    Throw trade ideas at me. I'm looking for a compressor pedal, overdrive, or TC Ditto, maybe a 6 string (Ibanez SR406/ 506).

    I have one of these and it is great sounding, technologically advanced
    And super versatile

    The fa works on mine but runs very cool anyway

    Great price for a solid little amp that drives 2 ohms easily

    How is the compressor on this thing?

    The compressor is great IMO... Can go from very subtle to very squashed, but it can never be shut off completely. Turned to its lowest setting, though, is so little compression that it basically isn't there.

    Gotcha, is there by any chance an aux in or someway to practice with MP3s?

    I can check that when I get home. I know it has a headphone out, but not sure about Aux In.

    EDIT: since the effects loop is parallel instead of series, you can run an audio device into that, but there is not a dedicated Auxiliary input.

    Will trade for a nice overdrive, compressor, envelope filter, TC Ditto, or 6-string bass. Not really willing to go much lower than my current asking price.

    To clarify, the amp is $195 shipped, not $150.

    I'd love to trade this for an MXR Bass Comp!
