I just bought a new amp head.

    Seymour Duncan Bass 400 for $200 + shipping ! I remember these sounding great, but occasionally being "finicky", Still, that kind of tone and power for $200 was impossible to pass up.

    Looks neat. Hopefully it works OK. My guitar player had a Seymour Duncan Convertible tube amp that was amazing while it was working.

  5. I was going to bid on that but decided to keep looking. I was going to take to about $275... but it turned out better this way.

    I know there's another on the bay right now too. These are really good sounding amp, IIRC. I think that for the most part, the ones that had issues had the issues fairly early on in life. Still, if it gets wiggy on me I can probably fix it fairly easily. Duncan has the parts and schematic available.

    I can't imagine this bass head being anything like the nightmare the Convertible is. Tube power, the preamp section consists of a series of plug-in modules, some tube some solid state, to mix and match as the user likes. Has some sort of Variac thing built in, and triode/pentode operation switch IIRC. It was neat, I'll give it that.
