    Is anyone familiar with the brand name Alligator? I've searched and searched online but to no avail... I can't find any information at all.

    If anyone has any info, recommendation... if anyone has seen or heard one, please let me know :bassist:

    Info:

    A British bass combo providing 200 watts through 2 punchy 8 inch drivers.

    This innovative amplifier competently handles even 5 string basses.

    Active and non-active inputs give access to an exceptionally quiet pre-amp gain control, a controlled compression/limiter circuit and a 7 band graphic equaliser providing ± 15dB at 50Hz upto ± 15dB at 7.5kHz.

    There are also three “Soundshaper” filters to allow even further manipulation, an effects send and return loop, a slave output, a balanced line output and a high pass bi-amp option to give control over a second unit from the front panel.

    The power rating can be increased to 300 watts RMS by adding an extension cabinet.

    This combo is compact (48cm high x 55cm wide x 26cm deep), 25 kg,

    very robust (semi flight cased - framed by a solid steel surround) with sturdy carrying handle indents (see photograph)
