    You can get a Sunn 1200S(same amp) off eBay for around $450.

    I played through a Sunn 1200S at a blues jam session. It's a great amp for blues and rock. The tubes gave it a big fat bottom, and the power amp section really kicks butt. tons of head room. If it wasn't so heavy I might have considered buying a used one. This is definitely a very good amp for rock and blues applications.

    I'm not sure, but I think that after Fender bought Sunn, they took the 1200S and put the Bassman name on it. The seem to be very similar amps.

    I confirm : Sunn 1200S = Fender Bassman 1200 (except very few details that have been changed).

    That's a very good amp. If the Avatar B410 really stands 1400 W RMS as mentioned on the Avatar website, then take it in 4 ohm version.
