    I had a BH-420. Then I had an SL-1. Both of those items are on my very short list of gear I wish I'd never gotten rid of.

    It's not super common but it's not as rare as the BH-250 head. It was the very first AMP product.

    i am packaging it today for hopefulshipment too dave next week. (if he says its ok!!)

    the tone is a bullseye, the overall volume is a miss.

    of course you already know all about the tone (and light weight). And by the way, you STOLE taht AMP off ebay you dog!!!!! you got the deal of the year imo.

    ;-)

    there is really no way to hide it... i have a problem. I went my whole life without bass gear gas.

    well, economics and physical space limitations have brought me back to reality.

    wow... that bass is so ugly its actually cool! you like it? fender jazz - ish?

    the ampeg 4x8 is a cool little cab. and you KNOW how i feel about the head!


    QUAD- seems the auction got concelled. i asked why, but no response from the seller. What do you consider too high? i didnt catch the last price. last i saw was 162 or so.

    I'm a fanatic for reverend rumblefish!! have three of them--the one pictured, a blue 5 and a recently bought Mahogany-topped Premium w/ a maple neck. They are super light, have a small neck I love and Tone? Awesome! Looks aren't for everyone, but everything else is first rate. Plus, they quit making them. I just posted a family pic in basses w/ my gear.

    TB's own BillybfromLZ was selling the AMP pre--not sure why he yanked it.

    It would be inappropriate to say much...but the auction got cancelled due to a mention of other brands in the title...:(

    I'm not a supporting member (yet) so I can't sell on TalkBass at this point in time. Perhaps it's time to join...

    i see. i wasnt aware that mentioning other brands was a no-no. I see it a lot.

    anyway, its time to join... that way the gear stays in teh TB community. ;-)


    best of luck.
