    I got to use one for as a demo the other night... great sounding amp IMO...thinking about buying it, but not sure about reliability...has anyone else had any experience with one of these?? as far as power, sound and ease of use, it was a great amp...just not sure about it for the money, any input would be greatly appreciated

    If I'm not mistaken,these are the Sunn amps.Unless Fender has done something to change them,they should be very reliable.

    I have a Sunn 1200S. The Bassman 1200 is the same amp. I recommend it. It is loud. It sounds great. I've had no trouble with mine.
