    Carvin makes a 100 watt poweramp currently.

    There is a Peavey series of tube power amps. Including Peavey Classic 30/30, Peavey Classic 60/60 among others. But they are no longer made.

    Aguilar also made a 200 watt tube poweramp, but is now discontinued as well.
  3. the aguilar poweramp was 400 watts not 200. They had an all tube head, the db359, that was 200 watts. but the poweramp head they made, the db728 was 400 watts.

  6. no problem

    the aguilar poweramp, db728 is no longer in production. When they were they costed around $3000. You could probably get a used one on the ebay for around half to two-thirds of that.

    I know that Demeter makes two models. A 300 watt, and a 150 watt poweramp. Their gear is really high end, and i expect it is really expensive.
  7. Unless you want to spend a ton of money, just get a tube head and use it as a power amp (or as a head :smug: ). Demeter is pretty much the only high power tube power amp currently in production. There are a few guitar tube power amps around as well, but nothing over 200 watts. Oh, I have seen a few 728s go for between $1300-$1600 used. I wish I could have snatched one up, but I didn't have the $ at the time :(
  8. Ampeg used to make the SVT-300 which was just the power section of the SVT-II (non-pro) amp, but they are pretty rare and you'd be aswell using an SVT-II and just going into the poweramp in, or just using the full amp, cus its very nice ;)

    I considered buying one of the last new ones for $2200. I would not have been happy if the dealer rounded up to the nearest thousand on me. :D
