    Hello - it´s me again with another question about an amp: I bought this one used on ebay for 110EUR. It looks quiet new, all the seller knew, that it should be a Warwick with 250Watts (maybe extractet off a combo) and the Frontplate has ben exclusively designed for a fair.

    It has a build in LED Tuner, no fan, but a heat sink. From left to right: Gain, -LED, Passiv/aktive Input, Flat EQ switch, 4 Band EQ, Low-, Mid- , High- boost switch, Effekt send, -return, line send, -return, D.I. out, another jack (headphones?), Master Volume, On/offf, Tuner on/off. It fits in a 2HU Rack. on the back are 2 4Ohm speaker outs. It´s made in germany (Ser. No. 960374) and sounds very neutral.

    It would be nice to see how much you know about german equipment ... ;-)

    Thanks alot!

    OK I already know that it has something to do with the Wamp C200. Any more suggestions? Come on ;-)...

    It'd probably be worth emailing Warwick to their international (non US) email address. They're usually pretty helpful.
     
  4. It is one of the older model and as far as I know, it is really taken out from combo (but I could be wrong). The Wamp line is now discontinuited for quite long time.
    I played its 300W brother and it sounded good. If you are into modern SS sound (maybe a tad darker, too much for my taste, but could be the cabs also), you might like it. They sell between 100-200 EU usually, so you have a good deal, I think. My personal choice would be the newer line, especially CL or CCL combos, but they are more expensive...

    Anyway, hope you will be happy with your purchase.

    OK, thank you for your Helb so far! I found out that the Bassist of Phloxx was the second owner of this amp. Its probably a Wamp C 250 (with 250 Watts RMS?) taken out of a Combo. The Band sign is selfmade and the Amp was built in ´96 and therefore one of the last of the Series.
