    Condition: Excellent - though I think it may need the Mesa high frequency oscillation fix - contact Mesa for details
    Age: 2 Years +/-?

    $600 US shipped in the 48 continental states.
    Retail new is now $899 price fixed!

    13 lbs. TONE MONSTER - 300w into 4 ohms (more when I run two 4 ohm cabs)!

    Check out the reviews. It's a portable (original shoulder case included) bass TONE machine. I'd keep it but I need funds for a stereo power amp.

    Thinking about it. You really put a 2 ohm load on it?

    For all my gigs I have used a pair of Avatar 4 ohm 1x12 cabs. Never had a problem. The only time I use just one cab is rehearsals. Tom Bowlus has used his at 2 ohms as well IIRC.
     
  5. I've discussed this matter with Benjamin at the Dallas/Ft. Worth GTG, and he confirmed it (inofficially). Then I used the Walkabout with two Schroeders (4 ohm impedance each) at an outdoor event and it worked just fine.

    So far all I have is the token "I will send extra money and my shipper will take care of it" rip-off nonsense!

    I can, indeed, confirm that I have run a 2 ohm and, more frequently, a 2.67 ohm load with my Walkabout, and it never even broke a sweat.

    You know how great this head is. But my Read Purity tube pre / Stewart World 1.2 is replacing it for only a few pounds (and mucha lana) more.

    Do you know if the same thing is true with the M-Pulse 600 head? I think I want to try running a 2 ohm load into mine at 12 o'clock gain and master. Do you guys know how long it would last?
