    This was built in the early 80's or so I've been told. This beast which I fondly refer to as 'Collosus' looks great and sounds killer. It sports four GE 6550 and two other power tubes. Preamp tubes are Amperex (made in Germany) and a couple GE tubes. I will look to confirm. The fan is noisy, but not noticeable at normal volume.

    The 810 cabinet is from the same era so it has a matching grill cloth. The cosmetics are really good on this. Minor rips and tears are maybe 1/2" in length. I assume the speakers are original, however, I will confirm that too.

    Oh and I have a road case for the head. It needs some tlc, but gets the job done. I installed 3" casters with brakes which certainly helps when transporting the mighty Collosus around.

    I'm asking $1100 for the head/case and $550 for the cab or $1550 for both. As for shipping, you're going to have to convince me it's a good idea. So, I'm considering this a local/regional sale and I'm willing to drive to make a sale happen. Speaking of driving, I will be heading to the Phoenix area on 10-16 and my route will take me through SLC and possibly Las Vegas.

    Trades? While I'm looking for a cash sale, I will entertain trades big and small. Zon, Spector, Roscoe, Digitech Whammy, MXR Blowtorch....

    I'm sure I've forgotten something, so PM me with your questions, offers, etc. Thanks. :)

    I can't find my current pics, so here are some to tide you over...

    The power tubes are:
    4 GE 6650, 1 Ruby 6650, 1 Valve Art 6550. My tech explained to me he had those lying around and they matched up. I kept one of the GE tubes he replaced (said it was going microphonic).
