    Rare Sunn Coliseum 880 amplifier, designed for use with bass or guitar. Inspection sticker inside dated 6-24-74. Rated at 320 watts, which were genuine pre-inflation watts capable of blasting out a lot of sound. Tolex and handles in good shape. Fan has been converted to a manual toggle switch (on the back). Nice long (new) power cord with three-prong plug. $500 (plus shipping) takes it.

    I can provide more photos and answer any questions.

    (BTW, speaker cabinets not included.)

    I always liked the voicing of this head. I played one in the late 70's, through two Sunn 1x18 cabinets loaded with Cerwin Vegas. Man did that rig move some air.

    I'm really sorry but I sold this on Ebay right away and forgot to mark this post as sold.

    I used a 360 back then, the Coliseum was considered a step up at the time--- I was in high school and didn't have the cash for the Sunn (couldn't find them used at the time).
