    Well used, early 90's model. Fresh new tube in it, much warmer than stock.
    Its a bit ugly, missing a few sliders on the graph, but everything is still working perfectly.
    Has some rack rash and yellow tape across the top panel, nothing that can be seen once its been put back into a rack.

    $300 shipped to Canada and the U.S.

    This is the mosfet version which IMO is underated. Much fuller/better sounding than the new Hartke junk.

    Looks like my old workhorse which is a lot better than the new stuff they make now from what I have tried out.

    Great head to start with if you are looking to get away from combos

    mosfet it is. I spent a while trying to get my hands on one up here.
    I'm only selling it because I now have my YBA200 tube monster.

    I prefer these hartkes to most Ampeg pro heads, except the 2pro, but especially the 3 and 5.
    These things have probably one of the best onboard compressors I've ever heard on an amp.

    What's the absolute lowest offer you'd take on it for a quick sale? (in Canadian dollars, shipped to Calgary, AB)

    I have one of these and it's great. Don't get it confused with ANY of the newer versions. Its bulletproof and sounds good. I used mine constantly as my only head for 12 years without a failure.

    Well worth 300.

    Definitely interested, it's a good deal. I'm going to scratch up all my dough and see if I can do it. I'll get back to you in a day or so, if you still have it then... :bassist:

    Hi, No don't hold it. I'll know in a day if I have enough cash, but in the meanwhile if you get any offers definitely sell it. :bassist:

    haha, alright, won't hold it.

    I'm also going to be selling my GK backline 410 cab as well, I can offer both in a deal for $700, shipping would have to be figured out or a pickup arranged.
