    Any of you guys familiar with this amp? There's one for sale with a 4-10 cab and I think it's a good deal but I'm not at ALL familiar with it. In fact, I never heard of it. I was thinking of buying this as a practice rig (and use the head as a backup for my SVT6) but if it's known for problems I want to stay away from it. Thanks!

    It's just an old, not-very-impressive unit, 2x 200 or 1 x 400 watts.

    Generally set up like a 4PRO but much less power and less features. No tubes. Has the old-style pull-switches for some functions, which you will want to be sure are OK, since you won't get a replacement if there is a bad one.

    I still have one l. It will work prefect for a practice amp or even a small gig.
    I've had mine up against my guitarist 5150 and still cut through in mono
    running at 4ohms.

    The only problem with that is that the unit is rated for 8 ohms in mono !!!!

    My brother just found one of these in the attic of the apartment he moved into. It's nothing fancy, but still a decent amp.

    I had one for several years and got good service.

    My only complaint was that it would need a new cooling fan every couple of years. I think the vibration killed them. It was a $20 part and only took an hour to install.
