    So I just had a funny feeling that I was going to find a bargain today and a bargain I did find.

    2a6p8at.

    Now I might have been impulsive I knew the price was right but I thought it was 100w because it had 4 power tubes in it :p stupid I know from what I can tell on the internet its anywhere from 28w to 50w which makes it less usable so don't know.

    I found it at a Cash Convertors over here in the UK it's basically like a chain of pawn shops so I couldn't try it out but will give it a blast through my 8x10 tomorrow.

    2nulgkx.

    24ottgl.

    So any info would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    DAMN, Tayste! You're really scoring with those tube heads lately! Any updates on getting those PA heads checked out?

    No not yet obviously now I'm poor I think I can sell my Iamp800 to finance this and possibly pay for one of the pa heads to be checked and retubed.

    It's a PDF file. My Firefox opens it fine.
     
  7. That is a guitar head isn't it? Reverb is usually a dead giveaway.

    Yeah should work well on bass though, sounded good for the time I dared to have it on in my apartment.

    I deal in shiny beads and goats.

    Interesting find - I've never heard of that brand before.
     
  12. Who's Simon Holmes?

    I've seen the Matamp with the "Made For Jimmy Page" tag.

    If you're willing to ship to the States, you could flip that for a quick sale on Ebay.

    Simon Holmes? I saw him in a few movies that were filmed in the 70's. Or was that someone else?
     
  15. What kind of tubes? I don't think Matamp made stuff that was only 28-50w.

    From what I understand the amp is a custom build for him they do these faceplates a lot for people. God knows why he sold it and for how much because these shops buy for 1/2 what they sell and it was dirt cheap for the price I got.

    It's got 4 tubes in it I'm guessing EL34's which to me is 100w but apparently thats around 50w to matamp so don't know.

    I'm just going to go on how loud it is tomorrow.

    Get my Ric and get my Sleep/OM on :D
     
  17. Don't undercut the power of an all tube guitar amp through an 8x10. I played a Mig 100 through an SWR 8x10 and I barely had to turn it up (less than a couple of 300 watt solid state heads).

    I've heard good things about MatAmp heads on the few guitar forums that I frequent from time to time. Good score!
