    I like the amp alot and have nothing negative to say about it. I also have had the LH1000, another great amp. I just have been using the HA5500 alot more lately and figured I could part with the Kilo to fund other gear.

    I do not know the seller but felt compelled to offer some insight for anyone on the fence.

    This is a steal at 600.00!

    I have run the 3500 and LH 1000. Although these both have excellent reputations, neither hold a candle to the Kilo.
    I like the thing so much that I even drag it to practice with a 210.

    Set flat, turn the gain up to the point when light comes on , then back it off just a tad. Next, turn the overdrive up until you just start to get some break up when you dig in and Ta Da !

    Then you:

    A) Rock Hard !

    or

    B) Make it funky now !


    Sounds very full but maintains clarity. You can hear every single note. And I play in a power trio where fullness makes a huge difference.

    I am not a fan of dragging around heavier gear, and yet I never flinch when I grab this thing.

    Some buyer is going to be a very happy camper.

    I'm trying my hardest to figure a way to grab this. I may be putting up a lot of fear to make it happen.
