    I got this head off of, as some call, "evilBay". I've had some horrors on eBay for sure, but this was not one of them. This 1001RB-II arrived today in the original box, plastic, etc. The head does not have a spec of dust on it. Paid $550.00.

    The sound? Oh my God! This thing ROCKS! I love everything about this head. It's simple, small, has all the right features. I just set every knob on 12 O'clock, plugged it into my Avatar Delta 2X10, and proceded to experience Heaven as I plugged my Ric 4003 into it and started playing. Talk about getting the most out of a 2X10 cabinet! This thing growls like an Ampeg, the clarity is exceptional everywhere on the neck, and so punchy. The "Contour" knob is killer. I haven't tried adding my Avatar 1X15 Delta yet - it doesn't even need it. Now I can see why the Delta 2X10 got such rave reviews - with the right head, this thing kicks butt.

    I could not be happier - thanks for the advice, Vic!
