    Hey there! I picked this amp up recently, because I used one about 10 years ago back line for a show, and I fell in love with it. Always wanted one. Very versatile. Very adjustable to completely fine tune your sound. Two preamps (tube and FET) than can be used independently or blended together. This amp is amazing, and I was stoked to be getting one. I absolutely love it- so why do you want to get rid of it? Good question. No real reason. I have too many amps, and this one is by far the most powerful I’ve ever played on. Unfortunately, I’m not touring (is anyone?) and have no regional gigs that would call for 1200 watts of bass. So it’s just not practical to use over my V-4B. Thus, I’m throwing it up for sale/trade. Comes in a very nice SKB 6u rolling case with Furman Power Conditioner.

    Would prefer to sell. Looking to raise funds for the new SVT. Not really sure what I’m looking for in trade. Just seeing what’s out there. Any number of strings is fine. Sunburst stuff makes me happy. Looking for PJ and Tele styles specifically. Bodies, necks, whatever. Amp and DI trades welcome. Really, if you think you have something, offer it up. Willing to ship, but would prefer local deal (Georgia-ish) as this thing is pretty heavy. 531939A4-CD29-440E-BEFB-8220A1654C92.jpeg

    I agree! The GBE-1200 is one of the best amps I have ever used - on a par with the sound from my Glockenklang HeartCore (but different)! I am SO tempted but every place I am playing is "No amps, IEM's" so this would just sit in my man cave :rollno::rollno::rollno::rollno::rollno:!!

    Good luck with a quick sale for an AMAZING amp! I used mine with TWO Accugroove Whappo Jr's and it was like the voice of God! With the tube and FET preamp section you can get whatever tone you want and the amount of power will make your hair curl!

    BTW- BUMP!

    Picked one of these up from agedhorse a couple of months ago and it’s the best SS/Hybrid amp I’ve ever had the privilege of using.
    I usually prefer my Super Bassman, but this amp is almost making me wonder why I still even have an all tube amp.......almost ;)
    Seriously, they knocked it out of the park with this amp. And with the rack and the Furman? Killer deal here, folks :thumbsup:

    Nice to see these amps still circulating. Hope your sale happens. Always was extremely proud of what we accomplished at the time this model came to the market...and it still carries the load. Good luck.

    Easily one of the best amps I’ve ever played on. If I was still playing venues larger than your average night club, I’d hold onto it. You guys really knocked it out of the park with this one.
