    Just came across this, haha, how the hell? do they make these for sale? or was this a one off do you think?

    Just imagine transporting this thing to a gig, and then if the venue was upstairs, taking it upstairs.. nightmare, but must be ****ing loud!

    the only thing scarier than the fact that they made that, is the idea that there are probably a bunch of cats who tried to order one.................... :rolleyes:

    Maybe bigger is better? :D

    I used to have a Bass Player magazine from 1992 that showed possibly the same amp. It said Dokken's Jeff Pilsson(sp?) used it on a "Monsters of Rock" tour and that it actually worked! He may have been using 2 of the 36-10" cabs, if I remember correctly, and I think the head's like 600 watts all-tube. :bassist:

  7. I thought they were just made recently-ish, for some world record and to show off

    If they arrayed the drivers 6X6 it might be practical given enough roadies. As it is, I'm scared that the head might move around and fall on me.

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    There is probably nothing behind the Ampeg cloth thing.

    Nope, its real. There was a show on TLC or something where they built a giant guitar, and used that amp to play it.

    Yeah it's for real, as far as I'm aware it is taken to at least some Guitar Shows and people can play through it and get their photo taken with it. You need a ladder to adjust the front panel settings.

    I think I'd put the cab on its side. I wouldn't want that looming above me, especially when playing those floor-shaking low notes. :eek:

    What jumps out at me is the need for an extra 15' of cable do to how high up the head is. Well, that and how exactly am I gonna fit this in my little mazda B2500.
