    Would it at least be worth picking up a head (KBA-220) in blue sparkle tuck-and-roll for $100? I know the tone leaves much to be desired, but would it be worth it not to have to carry my SWR stuff around all the time when I just wanna jam with some friends or something? Maybe just to leave at a friends house where we often play?
    I think the question boils down to, would you pay $100 for an extra 200 watt head just for the hell of it?

    Sure. Put a cheap cab under it and you never have to carry stuff.

    My old (old old - 1970s i think) Kustom 200 head served me quite nicely as my main amp.
     
  4. For $100 bucks you can't get hurt too bad. Even if the whole thing goes up in smoke it wouldn't be too big of a hardship..

    My friend had one of these and its not that bad. I would buy it if I were you. For $100 it sounds pretty good.
     
  6. If all else fails, you can probably burn that vinyl covering stuff for a dramatic finale. Or cut it off and put it on your other gear.
