    Talkbass Community~

    I hope everyone is well this holiday season. I’m bumping this and a number of listings after being away from TB for almost a year. If anyone had reached out to me regarding any of the gear I have for sale and I wasn’t able to respond, I sincerely apologize. It’s been a tough year of some very trying personal and professional hardships, and in order to best take care of myself, I simply needed some time away. On a brighter note, things have stabilized, and are generally on the up and up. If you have any questions about anything I have listed, please let me know. I should be able to respond to inquiries quickly and I can usually ship within the next business day. Given the circumstances, I’m also happy to provide references if interested buyers would like them. I would likely expect nothing less if the situation were reversed.

    Again, my apologies for any lapses in communication and any inconvenience it might have caused.

    Happy holidays!!!

    Greetings TB! I’m clearing out a TREMENDOUS amount of gear after collecting far too much over the last 8 years. Please see other items as well.

    Up for sale here is an Eden Electronics VT300A all tube 300 watt amplifier. Features include 300 watts @ 4 or 8 ohms, 4 band tone controls, overdrive, selectable damping, compression with bypass, available with 6 x 6550 power tubes. TS and NL-4 output connections. International voltage selection. Classic vacuum tube sound. Weight w/o case is 40 lbs. Includes footswitch, custom 3 space tolex head case, and Studio Slips heavy duty cordura clamshell cover with front pocket and leather strips on the bottom.

    The amp sounds fantastic and can cop a variety of tones from hi-fi to warm and wooly. It is in near mint condition, with only some faint, minor scratches on part of the faceplate that angles back above the tone controls. I've touched them up with a Sharpie and they are essentially invisible and impossible to photograph. The case and cover are immaculate. If you research these amps, you will find that there have been some issues with the amp cutting out when the footswitch is connected. However, my tech (Yontz Secure at Mad Science Works) has solved this by replacing the footswitch cable with top quality cable and also installing mini switches on the rear of the amp to control compressor and damping features, independent of the footswitch. To my understanding, the amp was designed by Koch for Eden, and is similar to the Sadowsky SA-200, which is also their design. I acquired the amp from the legendary Tom Bowlus and have had it for about four years. It is a wonderful amp with great tonal flexibility and more portability than any tube amp in it's class. The only reason I am selling is that I'm scaling back and I also have a B15 Heritage and an Aguilar DB680/728, so this is just overkill.

    Price is $1200 shipped and insured, via Fed Ex, to anywhere in the continental US. Shipping to AK, HI, or Canada is a possibility, but please contact me for rates. Sorry, no other foreign transactions. Paypal accepted. I am considering a few trades below and would be willing to do gear + cash either way, but please, nothing else if it's not included on this list. I have more gear than I know what to do with and absolutely have to clear some stuff out.

    Successful brain surgery bump. I'm at home recovering and able to answer any questions, but won't be able to ship for a week or two; thanks for understanding and all the support from the TB community.

    Sleeping off my pain meds bump. Some serious interest, but the amp is currently still available. I've secured some assistance here at home and can ship fairly quickly for a committed buyer. PM if interested.
