    Up for sale is my Reiner Studio 1200 bass amplifier. This amp is serial number 7 of (I believe) 12. These amps are highly sought after, and currently unobtainium as @JGR is no longer manufacturing them. High voltage three tube front end mated to a 1,200 watt power amp section that absolutely slams. Possibly the finest sounding amplifier I’ve ever used, and something that I’m likely to regret selling someday.

    The amp was just back at Jonathan’s shop in Maryland to have a scratchy pot replaced. As such, the amp has just been gone through by the manufacturer, checked out, tuned up and is in perfect working order. There’s even a video of it in use on the Reiner Amplificaiton Facebook page if you’d like to give it a listen (just look for the video with my name, Chris Wadsworth, in the title). Due to this recent service by the manufacturer the amp is basically brand new. It was only gigged a handful of times, used at maybe a dozen rehearsals, and two recording sessions while I owned it. Like I said, basically brand new. This amp deserves to be in the hands of someone who will play it out more often than I’m able to.

    Included in the sale:
    Reiner Studio 1200
    Two Powercon power cables (originals from Jonathan)
    Extra fuses (originals from Jonathan)
    Printed manual (original from Jonathan)
    Reiner sticker (original from Jonathan and never “installed” on the amp)
    Spare set of Gold Pin JJ preamp tubes (2x 12AU7/EC882, 1x 12AX7/EC883)

    A note on the spare tubes: The factory tubes are very nice Tung Sol models. The spare tubes were installed once and then the factory tubes went back in. I was just checking something, and as such the spare tubes are effectively brand new.

    Since these are no longer available new, the price is based on the other instances of sales I’ve found on Talkbass, the most recent of which went for $2,500 and curiously ended up in the possession of a guy that lives a few blocks from me! I’m not interested in any trades at this time. $2,400 includes shipping within the lower 48. International shipping may be possible, but additional shipping charges will need to be arranged.
