Merlin M-600 bass amp

  1. Did anyone ever try this amp? If so, I really would like to know how it sounds and what other amp it compares with.

    I've owned one for 2 years & it's my favorite integrated head. Pushing one El Whappo (800 watts) I've never turned it past about 11:00 on the dial.

    It's loud, clean, very simple & has a beautiful sounding tube in the pre section.

  3. Thanks, Mark;

    someone is offering me a Merlin 600 for $1,500.00. Since I've never played one I thought I'll ask. It's one of the few amps I haven't had the chance trying out.

    Sincerely,

    Jorg

    I think thats about a new price on one or pretty close.

    Merlin is coming out with a New head under a different name pretty soon. Actually the partner's split and one of them is coming out with his own unit.

    Retail or List price?

    Either way, WOW.
     
  7. Wow, that's some serious green. Well, a Glockenklang isn't cheap either. Thanks for the info, guys.

    Whappo, what other amp is the Merlin comparable?
    Might be a tough one

    thanks

    I've not played through one that's close, at least where I've done an exhaustive test...sorry. For only a guess, I might say a Ag 750, but it’s only a guess.


    Manufacturers suggested retail price.
