    Someone selling a 136 in nice shape but without original speaker. I Will be able to resist, 275€ is a fair price

    Lol, ended up making him an offer that he accepted. Probably going to chop it and turn it into a 140 head, and perhaps attempt to turn the bottom into a stand-alone cab. Still have some tolexed wood leftovers from 1 of my 125 combo's, and a few white dome emi speakers to finish the job

    Scored a cheap non-original 220 for donor parts. Spare wooden box in good condition, knobs, sliders. Will be my 3rd 220.

    The 220 is too small for a 370 isn’t it?

    I have both 120/320 heads and a 270 head. The 120 would be the larger width to match the 406 wide cab. The 370/270 is narrower to match 301 width cabs. Depths I haven’t paid much attention to.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that the feet of both widths fit the securing foot wells in each of my cabs (406w & 402) and that part seems fully interchangeable. Nice work ACC!

    2nd gen has different width than 3rd gen. The box for the 220 only matches 120 and 220, among several combo chassis. The 320 is bigger also.

    Nice!

    I'm curious, though... It appears that your middle 220 only has the white edge trim on the bottom -- at least I don't see it along the top front. Is that right? The reason I ask is that my 220 only has the bottom white trim, and there's no slotted groove where a trim strip might have originally been.

    Also, is it just the angle, or are there different shades of blue on each front panel? Your top 220 looks more turquoise than powder blue. I have a 330 that looks like your top amp, while my 220 and most of my cabinet trim looks like your bottom amp.

    Indeed, the middle one doesnt have it. The top one is a real beauty, that must have been the original color. Also my 125 was preserved like that

    In my opinion, it is mostly due to UV light degradation. The amps and cabs stored in a dark place preserve the color well, while for instance a setup stored in a room with a window becomes lighter blue. Also 1st gen vs 2nd gen vs 3rd gen makes a difference in color, but that's known i guess

    You're likely right about the UV. My 330 came to me very filthy and yellowed. Normal detergent-type cleaners weren't cutting through so I resorted to rubbing alcohol and elbow grease. I was worried there may have been some chemical reaction that resulted in that color, but seeing yours made me feel better.

    My recones for the original Emi's in my lately-acquired 106 2x15 cab are coming back next week. I got it with its mate, a 140 head, several months ago, which also had some bench time to bring it back up to spec.
    Anyone here have experience with a 146 bass rig? Did it actually handle club gigs with a rock band?

    I've got 106 (2x15) and 140. Depend on the size of the club. If it has more than 100 people capacity, you might need to mic it to house PA. It is not very powerful with such small amp (125W) for larger venues.
