    Howdy, TB. So I've been on a tube spree lately and have to thin the herd. For sale only is a beautiful Buster 200 that I got from awesome TBer Frank a couple of months ago. Only has around 15 hours of play time on it. Here's the original thread with pics:

    The head has seen only moderate home use by me. Also had my tech go through it and make sure it's okay because it was in storage for so many years. Asking $875 firm shipped CONUS in a no-fee transaction. Price includes a back-up set of 6 NOS NIB mesa power tubes. Local deal preferred and discounted.

    Thanks for looking, DM

    I've owned a Mesa 400, Sunn 300t and a Buster Bass and the Buster sounded the best (to my ears) by far... Can't go wrong with these heads ;)

    Love my Buster and this one looks to be pristine! The thing that turns some off by the Buster is that it does clean and quick, but warm and wet better than any other all-tube amp. But... hit it with a pre (like a Rusty Box) and OMG you get to awesome right quick.

    Also, don't be put off by the 200 watts... there isn't a North Bay club I can't play with this. Anyway, don't sleep on this killer amp.

    Local deal pending, due to close this Friday. I'll keep a list of anyone who'd like to be in back-up position. Thanks, DM
