    Up for sale is my 79/80 Sunn Concert Bass head. It’s been my main jamming amp for a while now but I’m slimming down and trying to focus on my home studio setup as this amp won’t get used anymore.

    This is probably the cleanest Concert Bass head I’ve ever seen or owned (I’ve owned 3 of them :) ). I’m the second owner and it’s been taken care of extremely well. The head functions flawlessly. Cosmetic wise the only noticeable wear is a small, what looks to be a burn mark on Tolex on the top of the amp (see pic). Other then that there is nothing noticeable besides small signs of it’s age in the metal. However no dents or tears. Handle is in excellent condition. Both the front and back of the amp are very clean, besides a little bit of dust.

    Price includes shipping via Fedex. Lower US 48 shipping only, payment via PayPal

  4. Great looking amp. Interesting how one of the inputs on the front panel is spelled "brite" and not "bright." Is that a common spelling?

    I honestly have no idea and would like to know myself :)

    The silverface Concert bass amps have the same “brite” spelling as well.

    Lettering was expensive back in the late 70’s.

    Great amps I used the Silverface versions for a few years. Had the Concert Bass with a Concert Slave. These heads are the loudest 200 watts you will ever hear.

    Man I'd love to have this. I had one back in the day along with the Concert Slave... Ran it through a Cerwin Vega B36MF cab (folded 18 w/ front loaded 12)... was a monster rig...

    Wow. That's crazy clean. Great sounding amp. Wish I could justify dropping the $$.
