Should I buy this for $125? Is that a good deal for one in great condition?
I would. Sounds like a good deal.
As long as it works properly that is a good deal for an under rated head
I think so. I used one in a backline through a 4X10 one night in Chicago - was impressed. No PA support, moderately loud band. No problem keeping up, plenty of reserve, heard every note.
For that price and condition I'd buy it too.
Thanks all for the input. Seems like a good deal to me, too. I can't find much information on it... just old reverb postings for ~$350 in worse condition. I think anything will be better than my acoustic b200h (though I got that for $60).
I have the Max700, which replaced the Firebass line. Extremely loud, dependable, and (yes) heavy.
Yeah, that's a very good price. Very good.
I bought it. Output seems kinda low for 700w, at least for Active. It may be dirty pots too. He said it's been sitting for a while. Any tips on repair?
It does 700 watts at 2 ohms, 475 watts at 4 ohms and 275 watts at 8 ohms. What cab are you using?
I used his cab, so I didn't even think about that actually. It was an 810 ampeg fridge, I believe
Considering that they are going for $350 in similar condition, it looks like a good deal to me.
Get a spray can of deoxit d5, get the cover off after it sat for ten minutes or so unplugged, spray the shortest squirt of deoxit into the pot and turn it all the way both directions about 10 to 20 times. Less is more and you don't want the spray to get on things outside the pot. There's usually an opening at the back of the pot where a bit of circuit board sticks out for the wires; best place to spray in most cases. Do not get the spray all over the circuit board. You can cover the board with aluminum foil if that helps (of course with power off and remove that before covers on/power up). Let it "dry" for a while with the cover off, get the cover on before powering up to test. The Deoxit helps keep future corrosion away, but you might need to repeat a year later of some of the controls get scratchy sounding. I wouldn't do this if the pots are not scratchy.
