    With 1 1/2 days left on the auction.....I'd suspect it will go a bit higher than the current $610. (especially since this post :) )

    Great combo .... I see them go on Ebay for $800-$950.

    It's a nice amp if you like the SWR sound. It's basically a combo version of a Bass 350 head and a Goliath Jr.

    The SWR brand name brings a premium price...

    Good luck!!!

    I have a Super Redhead and find that it is a great amp for upright bass but lacks the bottom I like with electric bass. This is true even after I installed a much better sounding tube in the preamp.

    I solved the "problem" by installing a Tech 21 RBI in the rack space. I run the output of the RBI into the effects return and now the amp sounds wonderful for both upright(through the SWR preamp) and electric bass (through the RBI).

    My take on the tone of the amp is just that: my take. YMMV. Many players love the tone of the SR with no changes.

    $850 is a good price for a SR in good condition. They list for $1995.
