    The BAIN Capital companies GC, WWBW, Music123, MF, and several others have the
    Kustom KXB500 500W
    at $200
    Try the different stores to get around shipping charges.

    They also have the V15 15W tube combo for $100, and a V5 5w for $50. Cheap enough to experiment with. Naw - forget it.

    Much of the "Acoustic" amp line is made by Kustom.

    Because they have many stores, some have free shipping, maybe some don't charge tax in your area. Some on the internet, some not. You can look up the name, then look up the stores, and call them.

    Other stores have it at a much higher price

    Nothing political about it. Bain owns those brands. It's no different than refering to an Ampeg or a Mackie as a LOUD product, or an SWR or Genz as a Fender product....because they are.

    I didn't know that Bain owned these companies.
    Anyone know who owns MUSIC FARM?
    Their website looks a lot like MUSICIANS FRIEND even down to the discount codes???

    The V15 at Music Farm is $315, where it's $99 at the stores I mentioned.

    Showing up as $199 for me, but that's still a crazy price.

    That's a nice enough price that I'd be tempted to buy one in order to pull out the Icepower and put it in my little 1x8 cab.

    it's true, DIY today is about gutting a amp and putting it in a convenient form.
    If this has a B&O w/SMPS it is way lower than a module you can buy.
     

  16. Thanks for the info. I always nice to be informed when making a decision on where to spend my money.

    I Like how they've kept the old style Kustom knobs and triange markers.
