    Just wondering if any of you cats in here know if there has ever been a company called savage making bass amps? My drummer saw an all tube amp in Cashies (Aus pawn shop really) which had bass amp - $75au written on the tag. I did a search and all i found for savage amps were guitar amps, guitar amps which cost like $2000US. The drummer said it was orange, and had big knobs/pots on it.. I looked for these savage amps in images on google and i found some orangey looking ones, but they didn't have the big pots/knobs.
    So i'm just wondering if there was a cheapo bass amp brand ever around (Or maybe savage made bass amps for a short time?) or if someones found this guitar amp lying around with maybe a busted tube or something, brought it in saying it doesn't work, got 30 bucks for it and cash converters put it out there for $75 when all it needs is a new tube or something..

    What do you guys think/know?
