    The Sunn Transducers in my 1971 Sorado cab are CTS, I believe. I’ll check later when I’m home.

    Nice rig!! I have a '68 1000S -same head with vibrato, reverb and a guitar voiced pre.
    We played Fire Island on an outdoor gig many years ago and my GK was kaput. I dragged that 1000S out of storage and put it on my Aguilar GS212. Between the brown power we got on the dock, everything on the amp dimed and my Status active MK maxed, it was the closest I ever got to Pappallardi's tone. No pedals, no processing, just everything working as hard as it can. I've never duplicated that set of circumstances, but man, that was a treat.
     
  3. Did you use the 4 ohm tap?

    After some years of use it finally gave up the ghost and went into storage. I finally conscripted my boyhood friend (who was there when I traded 2 Dynaco 60-watt monoblocks for it) and has since become a builder himself to resurrect it, which he did. New caps, tubes, 3-prong etc and he provided 3 speaker outs: 4 Ohm, 8 Ohm and a 16 Ohm for any guitar player using it down the road.
    I wish I could use it more.

    Oh? Why's that?
     
  7. Same reason I wouldn’t buy a customized 78 Buick.

    Just came upon the Sunn Lovers Club. Here's my Beta Bass 1X15. It's a back breaker for sure but sounds pretty great. Bought it brand new some 40 years ago now. Are numbers still being given out? Would like one if they're available. Thanks IMG_0796-a-denoise.jpg

    can anyone here give me comparisons between a Sunn300T and an Ampeg V4B reissue?
     
  10. #66 just checking in. Crazy times these days. I hope you all are O.K. I Put some "top" boxes on my Wall of Boom. 15" JBL D-15S, similar to the D-130f are loaded in and powered by the 200S. Full treble. Enjoy the view. Please vote this November, thank you. Peace and Happiness to all. 20200720_120142.jpg

    I don't seem to have writen down my Sunn club number. Any suggestions on how to find it? Thanks. IMG_9179 flash.JPG Sunnwall - 2006.JPG
