    Still an amazing head, with a massive transformer for a hybrid.
    No issues, just got a Tecamp Puma and I've decided (at pert near 60 yrs old) to scale down.
    Amp is missing 1 EQ slider plastic cover. Here's some specs of the next generation amp, but, mine's very similar... and made in England!

    ABM 500 EVO II Mono Bass Amp Head

    Power Requirements: 230/115V
    21"W x 8"H x 12-3/4"D
    31 lbs.

    Price $ 395 + Shipping. Shipping a box of 40lbs could be a deal breaker. Local pickup (Los Angeles) preferred.

    NOTE: The Bergantino in the pix is also for sale (local pickup only)...the Sadowsky 410 was sold several years ago.
