    These were discontinued a few years back...has seperate solid state and tube preamps and the ability to EQ each one seperately. You can blend the 2 and each side has its own compressor.

    I bought this 3 years ago and it has been my main amp since then. It has seen a lot use and took a bad fall a while back...I just got it serviced the other day for the following things:

    • Top right rack ear was extremely bent. It was able to be bent back straight but some of the black finish around it has peeled off.
    • The circuit boards were a tad loose when the tech checked it over, so he tightened them.
    • A three way toggle switch had popped out - it was replaced and it now works flawlessly.
    • One of the tubes was weak, so it was replaced with a JJ ECC83.

    I will include the invoice for all this work upon request, as well as the box that the JJ tube came in. The footswitch is also included.

    I have been playing with this amp all day and it works better than before, no issues right now except for some rack rash and a couple of light scratches on the front.

    $750 shipped! split fees if paying with paypal. Add $70 if you want the 4 space ATA road case. This needs to go because I'm going off to school in september..NO TRADES.

    Bump for great amp

    I use one exclusively, with a variety of basses--this amp could make a tin can sounds good.
