    This is one of those legendary 1980's Balder Thunder bass heads that you might hear one of the old-timers occasionally talk about here on TB.

    According to legend, these were made in Sweden up until Nady bought the design and started selling them re-branded.

    The preamp on this specimen works like a charm. The power section isn't fully functioning. The old guys on the boards recall these amps blowing fuses quite often, seems to be the case with this one. I get a little output, just very distorted.

    When I ran the preamp through my Ashdown ABM900, this baby sounded pretty smooth. You can get some nasty overdrive tones out of the Tube Voice section!
