    Well, I'm probably going to regret this, but ye olde Bassman 300 is up to the chopping block to help fund my insatiable pursuit of Sunn amps (got my eyes on a nice 68 1000s). This thing is just a Swiss Army knife of tone, and can pump out some insanely loud clean fat bass. My keyboardist is pretty bummed that it's going, he loves playing his Nord through it. I bought this from a band in Pt. Townsend a few years back who were using it as a guitar amp! Can't imagine the unholy volume when used for guitar! He said he bought it from the original owner, so I'm the third owner and it has been used decently since then. Nothing damaging or intensive, but it's seen a number of bar gigs, and it doesn't smell like smoke! Only a few small knicks in the tolex, no damage to the grille or faceplates except a small font smudge on the rear and smudging on the tube chart. One of the tubes went microphonic two years back, and were replaced by a matched set of Svetlana 6550s (so it now has 4 original Groove Tubes 6550s, and 2 Svetlanas). It also includes a proper footswitch and an IEC power cable. Fully functioning and louder than all-get-out.

    Features:
    300 Watts @ 8, 4 or 2 Ohms
    6x6550
    3x12ax7
    1x12AT7
    Balanced XLR Line Output
    1/4" Phone Line Output
    Tuner Output
    Channel 1 Vol
    Channel 2 Gain/Channel 2 Vol
    Channel Select Switch
    Channel Mix
    Low
    High
    10 Band Graphic EQ
    Low/High Enhance
    Mid Notch
    Low/High Comp
    Comp EQ Balance/Gain Trim
    Master Volume
    Effects Loop
    Footswitch controls Compression, Channel select, and EQ
    75 lbs

    Asking $1000

    I'm looking for a local transaction. I'm located on the San Juan Islands, but could easily arrange to deliver or meet a buyer anywhere in Skagit county or Seattle. Mainly interested in CASH, but if you have an old Sunn amplifier (120w 1000s series) or a pre-'66 Gibson EB-3 in good condition, hit me up to work something out.

    Indeed, they're truly fantastic and I can never understand why they seem so under the radar!

    Glad you enjoyed your stay. I live on San Juan itself, but worked all last summer on a construction project on Orcas, and just did a concrete pour over there two weeks back. Beautiful island, but even less playing options than Friday Harbor, and that's saying something! Ha!

    It's a long way TO THE TOP



    Plus, this is a good amp if you want to rock and roll.

    Another bump on me... I keep thinking about how two of these into two Uber 810's would sound. :D

    Well, if I ever read a headline saying "Bizarre Earthquake in Dayton Ohio flattens homes, opens crevice in Earth" I'll know exactly who to blame. Or rather applaud.
