    I'm offering this up for sale or trade. 180W of old school tube fury!

    Price drop $700. This is bottom dollar. Will split shipping.

    I have never had a better tone, period.
    Originally out of a 2 12 combo, I had a custom head case made by The Cab Guy and it's quite the dapper amp now. All new Tung Sol 7581's made a huge difference. Everything works (no reverb unit now). Pretty damn quiet except for an occasional crackle. Many of you know the mojo these have, please search the Amps section for Super Twin and Studio Bass threads for Q+A and general love.

    Updated trade interests are nice tube pre/DI a la Avalon, old Traynor YBA or other lower watt tube heads, or other things I can't live without + cash. Please message me with offers, post your questions and I can provide specific photos by request.

    Not your typical Fender-check the cut and boost EQ. Also the worst distortion known to man-don't touch that dial! I'm from Ted Nugent territory and he used 6 of these combos each with an ext. cab. Do the math. OUCH!

    Pretty cool looking amp. Would putting a reverb tank in it or does not have the reverb circuit?

    It's all there including the leads and the tube for it which I guess is pretty hard to find. There is plenty of room to re install the tank. In hindsight I should have done that, it sounded cool!
     
  9. If you still have this after christmas, I'll get back to you. This holiday season's about wiped me out and I'm not even done buying yet!

    I've been offered 70's V4B as a trade, which reminds me....

    This head is substantially lighter and has about twice the power. And more than one handle;).

    Sorry Tim, that went with the combo cab. I checked around to see if it might be worth selling on it's own but they are cheap and easily had. Like me!

    Well, I happened to get an email from the guy I sold the cabinet to. He's converted it to an ext cab and thinks the reverb unit is still around. If I can get it back I'll include it.

    day after Christmas bump
    such a great all tube amp, and in a very cool looking headcase as well. I have the Studio Bass version and it just nails the old school, big iron/all tube thing.
    Put some Tung Sol 7581A power tubes in there and it delivers a very honest 200w of output.

    Thanks, I did just that at the advice of the guys at The Tube Store- a matched 6 pack of Tung Sol 7581's w/ under 50 hrs on them now. And this just in- I got a line on the reverb unit it came with and I'm getting it back to be included.
