This is a fantastic amp! I kept this over an SVT and an SVTII-pro - it just sounds that good! Alas, it's also been sitting almost unused for the past year ... This is an all-tube 300-watt amp. I've had it about 3 years - when I bought it, I had the shop go over it and address any issues. I used it fairly regularly for about a year and a half and then retubed and rechecked (no issues) it and have put less than 10 hours on it since then, so the tubes are in great shape. Its a VT300A (I think), but I haven't had any issues with the footswitch. It's light for a tube head - ~45 lbs. $900 plus shipping, rack case included, defend Nola sticker optional (it will remove easily). Trades? Really looking for a high end fretless jazz bass type bass - Sadowsky, etc. Bonus points for a coated board! Also looking for a Barefaced 2x10 (plus $$$ on your end), and higher end fretted jazz basses. Otherwise hmu, worst I could do is politely decline.
