    Don't waste your money!
    There was a very good reason why they built so few! - In a word - Unreliable!
  4. That's nothing - Rick Nielson from Cheap Trick has a Marshall head that's at least six feet long and two high.

    Ampeg holds a guinness record for the worlds biggest tube amp though. It's in the ampeg book. They built a 600 watt SVT with a cab that had 32 10" speakers. The whole rig weighed something like 1200 pounds. Ack!

    I lived in LA during 92/93 (and survived).In one of the used gear stores right around the corner from GC on sunset was a GIANT MARSHALL AMP.It was a freak show the company built for some reason, this thing took up one whole side of the store. I was told it had resently been rented for a vidio(mr big i think its been awile) I would not be at all suprised if this is what Rick nielson owns I know it was for sale.

    Do you have a picture of this 32 10" speaker cabinet??
  8. It exists in the same way Merle Unruh's 8 x 18 cabinet exists...

    Ronzo, not quite. It exists. It was built for the bass player for Dokken, and it holds a Guinness worlds record. I don't have a picture, you have to buy the ampeg book to see it.
  10. You mean Merle's cabinet DOESN'T exist??? :eek:

    His wife just ran into it with the car in their garage!!!

    He's posting pics of it. Soon.
  11. I want it! A bass amp that holds and comes with eight bottles of beer can't be all bad......

    The shipping from UK will likely be more than the amp!!!
