    Is there any other differeces internally in the iAmp 800 with the sabine tuner on the front when compared to the latest iAmp 800?

    none whatsoever,

    but i gotta say, the tuner on mine was pretty darn handy, given my rather absentmindedness.

    Thanks! That is great news. I found a used iAmp 800C combo (with tuner) in great shape that a guy is willing to trade for my Lakland Skyline Bob Glaub. Is that a fair trade?

    I certainly like the tuner feature. Very handy. :D However if I ever sell my tuner equipped iAMP it wil give me an opportunity to buy one of those Pederson Strobe thingys.

    As for the trade. I can't really advise you there. I guess if both parties are happy then its a good trade.

    He-he. Let´s hope he´s not watching this then. :bag:
    Keep in mind that we both live in Sweden where new and used prices are quite different from the ones in the USA. No one here have ever heard of EA it seems. Lakland have a better resale value as they are more known in Europe.

    I dig the tuner, too, but with or without, it's still one of my favorite amps.

    Yes. A parallel effects loop is in its place, so you have both a parallel and series effects loop to choose from. The tuner model only has the serial effects loop.
