    Hate to list this little wonder, but I need to raise some $.

    These don't come up too often for good reason. This shoebox really has blown me away! Amazing tone and volume for its size, and handles a low B!!

    It sounds so good I have also found myself using it for portable music playback on the back patio with my iPhone. Very enjoyable! (and I'm a bit of an audiophile)

    I usually run it off battery- super convenient for hours of jamming without power cords.

    I will ship in original packaging and include a nearly new Lenmar PPU 916RS battery, plus the original power supply.

    My cost with battery: about $530 + shipping.

    I'm asking $385 shipped. Probably negotiable, especially if you aren't 3k miles from me. Local deal in western WA can save you some $.

    PM with questions. Pics coming soon.

    Make an offer... Like to sell ASAP.

    One of these is on my wishlist, and I've been stalking them for ages. I really want to pair it with a Kala U-Bass, and have a neat little travel kit that I can easily take on planes and trips.

    That said, money's tight right now, and I'm waiting until things loosen up, or until I find a *really* good deal. One came up here a few days ago for less than half the retail price, and it sold in under an hour. When I saw the listing, two hours later, I let out loud wail.

    Not that any of that helps you, I guess, I just thought I'd share. ;)

    ^yeah, that sold in an instant for a stupid low price!! (No offense to the seller intended)

    Mine is about 1 year old, in excellent condition, and comes with a battery that easily slips into the well designed handle for a quick one handed grab and go!

    I'd call the preamp pretty transparent, a quality I like. Every bass's character comes through. My old Rob Allen Mouse sounded fantastic through it! But then again, I really like the sound of all of my basses through it.

    It hangs in a surprisingly loud environment. After searching for the right AEB, I have decided a solid BG through this little box works better for me accompanying acoustic instruments.

    Wonderful practice tool as well with aux in with volume and headphone out. Also, it's the only amp I can play without headphones while my kids are asleep upstairs. You can get good tone at very low volumes and not disturb your house which is really nice.

    I'll probably end up with another one of these before sunny weather returns to the PNW :)

    Make me an offer.

    Given how well these sell, I'm sure you'll find someone willing to pay your asking price. That said, I'll PM you a backup offer, in case the stars align. ;)
