    Hi,
    I just won an eBay auction for a Seymour Duncan 800 watt bass amp for $305.00 plus $25.00 shipping.
    I based the decision on my faded memory of a favorable Bass Player review and bid at the last minute.
    I have attemted to include the auction link. (My first try, I hope it works)
    Please let me know your opinions on the quality and tone of this amp.(and my faded memory!)
    Thanks all.

    I've had the Duncan Bass 400 (pretty much the same
    amp w/o the bi-amping) since 1987, paid $700 new,
    I think the 800 watter was going for $1100 new
    back then. Not alot of tonal variety, just
    LOUD and clean,which aint a bad thing. Just make
    sure you've got the cab(s) that can handle it,
    I've blown up every brand and size speakers w/
    it in the past, with the exception of an 8-10"
    SVT. NEVER had any problems other than that.
    I think you're gettin a good deal- let us know
    how you like it- I haven't seen any threads
    on these amps.
