    This is it...this is the holy grail!

    Shipped over from Sweden, this is a 1970 Orange Matamp OR200. As used by Jimmy Page and many others back in the day. I believe they were only built for a few years and they don't come up very often, so I snapped this one up when it became available.

    Fell in love with these back in my teens when Weezer's original bass player used one on their first couple of albums and been after one ever since. The UPS guy was pleased I was in to help him with the box, but out of the box it's not terribly heavy...the two handles make it relatively manageable. Not had chance to really crank it, but just take my word that it sounds really good upload_2018-10-10_19-58-9.

    Anyway, pics...

  2. Wow awesome maybe someday when I grow up I’ll get to play a Big Matamp. Enjoy!
    You da man. If what they say is true about the difference between men and boys being the price of their toys. I know this was not at all cheap. Haha

    Yeah, it wasnt cheap! Although compared to what I've seen them sell for, it was reasonable.
    I have a 1976 Matamp GT100 as well, so I might move that on to recoup some costs. Thanks for the kind words.

    Review on how it sounds? Or how does it compare to a AD200B?
