    I have a very good condition Mesa 400+ for sale/trade. It is racked in a short Gator case with extra drilled ventilation holes. It is equipped with Electro Harmonix 12AX7 EH preamp tubes, and Reflektor/Svetlana power tubes, that are less than a year old.
    Also included will be the original Mesa Boogie tubes. This is an absolutely killer sounding all tube amplifier. The weight isn't "too" bad for a tube amp, I'd guess in the 55 lb area racked.
    The only reason I'm selling is my needs have changed due to taking a new gig with a different band, and I'm looking to go smaller/lighter.

    I am asking $800 plus shipping and would consider trades (partial or full..based on the value of the trade) for:

    EA Iamp 800
    Thunderfunk 550
    A preamp/poweramp setup
    Alembic F1X
    Demeter VTBP201
    Demeter HBP1
    Kern IP777
    QSC , Crown or Crest poweramps (Lightweight only)
    Eden WT550
    Eden stereo head (bridgable into 4 ohms)
    Eden Navigator
    Read Purity

    Go ahead and inquire on other trades of amps or preamps, the list above is not all inclusive. I'm not interested in Kustom Groovebass or any other "budget" gear.

    The Mesa will be shipped well packed, with the tubes removed and shipped seperately. (I'll pay shipping on the tubes)

    PM or email delturco@earthlink.net

    As you can see from the pics, the original owner rigged up the gator rack with two metal braces on the rear, so the amp is supported in the rack from the front and the rear.

    Geewhiz, Cheezewiz! Just when I was thinking of going the all tube route to see what all the hub bub was all about. Man I just don't have the cash or the proper trade bait. QSC RMX,(heavey)/BMax.

    Bump for a cool dude anyways...

    If it falls through, would you have any interest in an M-Pulse 360?

    I appreciate the offer firebug, but that would be less power than I'm looking for.
