    Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 Stereo all tube, 200 watts per channel power amp. Has some rack rash on the top, some nicks here and there, the interior is damn near mint. Everything works as it should. If a buyer wants, I can powder coat the top at work with a flat black that's pretty close to the original. Scoop up this beast!

    $825 Shipped, insured & Paypal'd - US only

    Amp trades are cool!
    Peavey Classic 400 +cash depending on condition, tweed would be awesome.
    Other tube amps. I have a rebuilt Monolith Magma to sweeten the deal.

  2. Great amps! I have a really beat up one I found in a local shop, I use it to power my stereo system :D. Really great versatile amps, you actually don't even "have" to use a preamp with them, there's some magic in the input that lets you plug a bass directly in and drive it fully!

    ALSO! 400 ALL TUBE WATTS!

    Phenomenal amp and using it for your stereo is one of the best kept secrets. I used to have one of these in the 90's and Mike B at boogie told me to try hooking it up to my stereo. Holy crap! Everything sounded 3 dimensional especially classical music. It sounded like the triangle player was right in the room.
    I used it as a power amp with a triaxis I had modded for bass. A truly amazing bass power amp. Glws!

    When I was doing some research on these I came across audio forums where guys were using these for home audio. Wish I had a pre to check out some vinyl with this bad boy. Also came across a guy who plugged cabs into every output, 12 cabs...performed flawlessly!

    Too bad it's gotta go.

    I helped a buddy who did the carpenter part of home theaters in Big Bucks homes, in Silicon Valley. Tube amps and silver wire were the thing! Maybe put this puppy on audiophile sites too. But what do I know.

    3 dimensional sounding power amp with a 3 dimensional sounding pre??? It would sound like bass nirvana! The 400 was my fav power amp back in the day. I loved using it for bass and for music as I wrote earlier in this thread. I can't believe an audiophile has not scooped this up yet.

    Monique sounds pretty awesome with the Strategy, at least it did in my living room. Free bump for an awesome power amp, and a clean speciment to boot.
     
  13. That must be like 2 D-180 power amps in one chassis, awesome.

    Monique sounded great with my D-180, so as good if not better with this.
