Is it any good?
Any good for what?
I imagine it'd make one impressive paper weight.
I have an older Sunn rig that I don't currently use(head is in need of repair). I don't know if the heads are comparable, but I personally have liked the few Sunn products I have played through. I'll need a lil more info on what you'll be using it for and what you're looking for in sound.
It may be good to me, you may hate it.
(To answer your question[to the best of my knowledge] in less words than you used)
Mine works beautiful and sounds great.
well.. I'm trying to run it through a 215. I think the impediance is 4 or 8 and it handles 30o-400. I would like to gig it out and use it for practice.
I couldn't find a review on it so I came here.
hmmm... how loud does it get and what is it like tone wise?
Would you suggest a power amp to give it an extra kick?
Sorry, that was suppost to be more tongue in cheek than it came out as.....needed more smileys...
Sunn products are very good from my experiences, I think you'll be happy with it.
Alright. I think I'm going to look into it a little bit more before i throw away my 200 bucks.
Using two cheap 2x10 cabs with it and it has no problem handling 2 loud guitarists.
Pretty flexible, tending towards a 'round' tone
You can, but it should be able to get you thru most situations.
The Coliseum 300 is the solid state version, right?
I found this schematic for the Coliseum PA (tube version):
And I found this set of schematics for the Coliseum Bass (solid state version):
200 bucks sounds like a pretty good price either way.
Assuming you guys are talking about the vintage 1970s amps, John Entwistle played them for a good chunk of the 70s and kept using Coliseum power amps well into the 80s.
Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, is it this head?
Yep. There she is.
Hmm, I wonder how much they changed over the years. I think yours might be a later model than the ones I know from Who photos.
The ones Entwistle had from 1972-ish looked like these:
coliseum slave power amp:
And here's a somewhat later Coliseum Bass head:
... which still looks different from yours.
The 300 came out in the early '80s(4th hand info). They really didn't sell well, because Sunn was considered an out of date, old technology. Probably one of the last amps before the Fender buyout. Its sound would probably be popular now... if there were more of them available.
