  1. I found one of these heads at a local music-go-round and i kinda fell inlove with the sound of it. but i'm looking for some more information before i buy it, i'm wondering if anyone has any info about it.

    I had one circa 1981/1984, with the matching 2x15 cab.

    As far as I remember, it delivers 210W.

    I used it with a Stingray (pre-EB, obviously), and being involved into a new wave project through these years, I had a great tone.

    I used it for 3 years and experienced no problem with the head.

    What more info are you looking for ?

    All the best,

    I've got a Centurion Mark III. Made in 1978 I think. 130 watts at 4 ohms. Two channels (one for active, one for passive, with channel mix jack. Footswitch input, effects loop, power amp input. Turn the pre gain up, with the post gain down, it gives you a really sweet distortion. I'm likely to sell it soon for some money for my new Mesa 400+.
