    Hi, I'm buying a JMF Electronics 250 Watt Spectra Bass Head tomorrow for 100 Dollars. I found it on Craigslist. I figured its too good of a deal to pass up. So I was wondering if you guys have ever heard of the company or have used the head.

    Heres the link:

    Thanks,

    I've never seen that one, it's a good looking head, that's about all I could tell you. If it works, it's certainly worth $100.

    I did occasional warranty service for those guys back in the mid-80s, but I've never seen that model. Most of their stuff had an entry level vibe, but it sounded fine IMHO.

    I've got a JMF combo--150w into a 15". It sounds pretty good, but it is really HEAVY.
    It seems very solidly built. I took the head out and cleaned the pots etc--all very tidy. The only thing I know is that they were originally made in Salina (?) or Topeka KS. The company was eventually purchased by Ernie Ball (I think) in the mid-'80s.
    I think it's worth $100.

    Thanks guys, I picked it up today. It sounds good for the price. They are made in Salina, KS. It is definitely worth the $100. Durring the summer, I will probably pick up a better head.
