    Hey, i found one locally in good condition for a sweet price ($299) and a turn on is that it will run 2 ohms, and i found that i dig SWR amps, but can't stand their cabs. I hear these ones are really clean and great amps. It won't replace my ampeg, but just for different tonal options. and i need something to spend my damn money on! (i've got like $500 sitting right now...)
    And my friends from SLO, please hold your "Gear Whore" comments (you know who you are...)

    Thanks,
    Scott D.

    That would seem to be a very good price...you might want to ask why it's so cheap...

    I had a red faced one...nice amp, but not really my cup o' tea.

    Yeah, i hear alot of good stuff about the red-face's. But this is a great deal, it's from a local store, so i can check it out, and if there is something wrong with it/i don't like it, i can always return it.

    Peace,

    If it's returnable, it doesn't require much thought then...

    Make sure you tell us how you like it:)

    The 350's are good amps but they are pretty finicky when run at 2 ohms. Don't know if you've ever owned an SWR or not but all SWR's tend to run hot. Really Hot. Be prepared to allow for a lot of air around the amp if you are going to push it at 2ohms

    Thanks alot guys. I found out why its so cheap...
    The inkscreen (the graphics/print etc) "is peeling of at an alarming rate", but the electronics are spiffy. I don't care about cosmetics... seems like a good deal to me. I'll let ya'll know what i'm going to do.

    Peace,
