    I dug around and there didnt seem to be one. If someone knows otherwise, lemme know. (Quad, nikibass ?)

    Until then, let's see those bh220, 260, 420's, SL1's, and even that funky keyboard AMP amp. Gibson GB440's welcome.

    speaking of, I used to like this:


    but this is the current rig.

    I have a KD-400. Four input channels. It is a keyboard/drum amp. Great sounding head. If I played multiple basses on gigs, this would be a KILLER head. It is STILL a killer head! It does not get much use, as I tend to gig with a small combo.

    I'll post a pic one of these days!

  3. Ha! I have one of those. Can I join?

    I used to have a ton of AMP gear. I sold off most of it over the past two years. They sure do sound great though Epifani cabs. What cab are you running, dmusic?
  5. That just happens to be my Epi UL310 S1. But I have tons of stuff.
    I actually don't care for the amp much, but I keep it for historical purposes.

    ... bought my first in 91 and I'm using the same model again now.

    Here I am gigging it in 92 (last gig before buying my first Bagend cab)

    And here is my current

    I can vouch for Nicky's past obsession... I think he deserves a number!

    Here is an old pic. I still have an SL-1 and a BH260. The rest is sold. I still use the SL-1 for my little project studio. The 260 doesn't see much action though.

    I do wish I had the wooden side-handles for mine. Do those ever show up on ebay at all? I suppose they'd be pretty simple to make too...

    Since the '90s I've gigged a AMP BH-420 on gigs use a BH-260 at home and in the rehearsal space. I also have several SL-1s (they were very inexpensive).

    I had a BH420 that I foolishly sold. I then revamped my entire rig and decided to go with what I knew worked for me. I went with a Bag End stack of S15s and became determined to find another BH420 or save for a Thunderfunk. That day I went on TB and saw where someone linked to an ebay auction for a BH420 and the seller had a reasonable BIN and was barely ten miles from me. I did not hesitate. It's an early model with the original wood trim still. I just need to replace the power switch. This rig will be the one for me for now on!

    Thanks. Its a custom color order from of duratex. It's about one "shade" lighter than the SWR California Blond acoustic guitar amps. Not finished yet, as I need to paint the one baffle, add a handle, and some other little things. The low light/lack of flash helps hide sloppy woodwork & finishing!

    I've had a 420 for well over a decade. The power switch has gone south on me - I haven't tried to fix it and I don't know if I can replace it. I love the amp. I'll take a pic when I get home.

    Until a few weeks ago I had three BH-420s. I can just go on and on about how good I think they sound.

    I also have an SL-1 preamp.

    The extra half rackspace on both presents unique challenges, however.

    I have two sets of rack ears I've decided to sell, if anyone is so inclined.

    I am certain if ever I get a brand-new amp it will be a Thunderfunk, assuming that they maintain the same AMP/Gibson vibe.

    There's got to be some A.M.P. owners out there! Here's my new back up amp. Swapped my old back up amp for it, a 260 along with it's older BH420 brother. For yuks I used the crossover outputs on the 260 and ran the lows into the power amp in on the BH420 and powered a cab with each head. 330hz seems like a decent fixed crossover point.
