    Nope, but I wouldn't complain if one of these were under my tree on Monday morning.

    Right until the Visa bill of $1390 hit. I've seen 70's SVT's go for a lot less than that ... Isn't that about what a new Mesa 400+ runs ?

    and 200 watts at 2% distortion ? at 1Khz ? not exactly hifi specs

    It is cute, I'll give it that and it probably sounds great up to a point. Seems pricey for the spec's to me though.

    They do look cool. Everyone needs a 120watt tube combo for christmas! Unfortunate that I don't think in kilograms though so I'm not sure how much they weigh in at. The $1390 I thought was in euros?

    A kilogram is 2.2 lbs.
    (Its one of the few things I remember from the 70s)

    Anybody know the exchange rate for euros?

    Yeah. Unless I am missing something, you would be better off with a Mesa, Ampeg or a Fender Bassman 300PRO

    Holy !@#$!
    I've got to find one of these to try here in the U.S.!
    I've yet to play a bass through EL34 or KT-88's (bass amp, anyway).
    It looks like I'll have to see if they'll be getting any in in New Jersey. Unless for some strange reason I need to visit the Czech Republic!

    It's cool that the amp is able to project the low H string with no loss of definition. That's the first thing I look for in a tube bass amp.

    Is that below B or just above the G? No loss of definition. I'm not sure the planet Earth can withstand many 16th H notes below B.

    It's been a few years since I heard it, but I would say it sounds like a Mesa with more balls. :eyebrow:


    The distributor at the time was clearing these out at $750. Should have bought it when I had the chance. :scowl:
