    Ok, so, Ray needs cash, very badly. I have two amps, and one's just not being used. So, out with the Acoustic B320. Large pic to start:
    [​IMG]
    As you can see, it's in really nice condition. I don't know the actual specs on it, but I was told by a person who owns one that it's 400W (give or take) at 4 ohms, 320W@8ohm. It's sort of heavier, I'd say in the 20-30# range. Pretty versatile amp, and quite loud. It's never been cranked, though it has been somewhat pushed - NEVER had any sort of overheating problem though. As far as I know, everything works well on it (I have never tried the hi/low outs, or the FX send/ret). It's always been matched with an 8-ohm 2x15 SUNN cab, on gigs from 30 mins long, to 4 hour all nighters without a glitch, using an active (18V) Spector and my passive ESP.
    Soooo I'm going to say shoot me offers, though I have a solid bottom line of $250 + shipping. I'm not looking for trades, but feel free to shoot them by me, worst I'll do is say no. Contact info:

    PMs work to some extent, though as of late with my jobs and classes, I haven't had any time to get on TB. Hopefully someone out there wants a killer amp, that is collecting dust :(.

    Bump/update:
    FX send apparently does NOT work. I'm going to get it to my tech today to have it fixed at and checked out for anything else that may be wrong.
    Anyone at all interested?

    -Ray

    Edit: The only trade I'd really consider is $150 + a good rackmount wireless.

    I can co-sign it for $300, but I'd rather a TBer had it. And that shop has been known to flake out on not giving you all the money, so that's more incentive to keep it in the family ;).

    I own the 140 head with 106 2x 15 cab and it is
    indestructible.

    The wattage rating on my 140 was 100 watts. It is
    SIGNIFICANTLY louder than my EDEN WT-300 at the
    same output. The ratings when these amps were built were
    much more conservative. Your head is much heavier duty.

    This amp may not be right for Andrew up there before, but
    they aren't making these any more, and this one is in top
    shape from what I can see. And very nice styling. On the right
    cab, it would be a great looking big rig.

    It will also slave nicely to another head and drive a
    2x15 sealed box like nobody's business.

    And you can stand in the node of the 2x15, crank out some
    harmonic feedback, and startle your egomaniacal Marshall
    stack friends. FOXY!

    It's a big dawg.

    Hey Thor! Nice to hear from you. When you say about it matched with the right cab, did ya have something like this in mind:
    [​IMG]
    :D. That's a JBL loaded 2x15. An absolute killer cab with an awesome head. It sends the bass wayyyy out there to be heard and felt be everyone. At the same moment, it's a great quiet amp also. Thanks for the bump, and the insight :smug:.
    For anyone who's looking who may be interested, here's three more pics:

    Pay attention to the 2nd one, it has circled a wire that has come off of it's spot - a simple solder job will fix it. I haven't had time to take it to my tech yet, but I can assure you that will take place prior to shipping (with a reciept sent for proof). Thanks for looking!

    Ray, did the Sunn came factory loaded with JBL?
    Are they K-140's ?

    That is a sweet rig! I love the way the classic stuff
    looks. And few look better than Acoustic and Sunn.
    They have the performance to match.

    My man Funkster keeps telling me he is blowing 10's all
    the time. I never have heard of anyone blowing a
    JBL 15, especially the K-140's.

    There are a bunch of guys on this board that absolutely
    swear by those drivers.

    K-140s they are too! Sadly, it didn't come from factory with JBLs, just some Sunn speakers. Only reason I replaced them was when I was browsing in the local shop, some dude came to pick them up, and flipped out that they were 16OHM speakers. After I left I asked how much for a pair and they gave me a number I couldn't walk away from. Bought them, loaded them up and haven't looked back since.
    . No, it doesn't actually. It goes to the low-freq out.

    Sorry. I completely misunderstood you. I thought you didn't
    like it for what it was.

    You'd like it but you don't like the price. So are you a buyer
    at a lower price, or just commenting about what he is asking
    for it? It is his right to ask what he would like.

    So, if you are a buyer, make him an offer. If not, it is a
    moot point, isn't it? No need to discourage other interested
    buyers, is there?

    Ok you two, break it up :p!
    This thing has to move people, and I'm easy to work with. I really need the cash from this one, so that price really isn't moving. I'll make exceptions, but I need a reason to ;). Sooooo c'mon! Lets get those offers in, time is running out!!

    Ray, I am totally interested but not sure if I can swing it at this time.

    Just to spice things up (as in pouring salt into my open wound :crying: ) can you give me a bit of info.

    I just bought an Acoustic 120 from Andrew (thanks again...excellent transaction) and I love it. Great tone and surprising amount of power considering it rating HOWEVER I am certain that it isn't going to be powerful enough for actual gigging (band in on 2 month hiatus to work on writing) so I am interested in the same tone but more power.

    Any input?
    Thanks.

    Lots of input! I noticed with my particular head, no matter what it's driving (here's what I've tried: Ampeg SVT810, Eden 410XLT, my Sunn 2x15, Acoustic 2x15, Peavey 4x12), it seems pretty loud. I was in a nu-metal band, and for me to cut through I had to go to about 1/2 on the master. Of course, it may have been the bass I was using also, as it is a pretty quite bass to begin with.
    One thing I can tell you to do, is if you find yourself wanting more power, just buy the most transparent power amp you can, and run the pre-out to it. I don't want to clutter up my FS page, so if ya wanna talk Acoustics, or anything, hit me with a PM or an IM sometime, I'm always up for a chat :smug:.

    Amp is SOLD! I'd like to thank the sudden interest of four people (wow!), it's a shame I only have one to sell :p. Thank you everyone who has taken interest.
