    The eight hundred watt XS800H makes its debut as the highest-powered tube hybrid bass head in the BassMaster line. It features 800w at 4ohms and a host of features for the demanding bassist.

    I've just come across this from their website. Any clue as to the price or when this will be available? I'll search their site again, but I didn't notice this information.
  4. :hyper: The bass head sells for $879 retail. The YBA-200, also worthy of looking at for the tube freak, is selling at $829. :bawl: Poor Boogie and their "Big Block"! Yorkville stuff just kills for the money and has for decades been extremely reliable. The XS-400H actually weighs more than its big brother!

    Now if we really want to start a fight, we can state truly that the SVT is a rip of the Traynor YBA-3A.......
