    I dont know. The Fafner is still on their site. And though the Fafner has been discontinued for a length of time in the US it is still available in Europe.
    Im sure the new head will be just as good or if not even better.

    Oh :( Woulda have loved to see my guitarists face turning up in rehersals with that 650 tube watts under my arm :D

    I guess my best bet is one of dem Peavey Classic 400w tube bass heads, then :p
     
  7. or an aguilar 400W tube poweramp or two?

    i was basically told there was not enough interest in it to make it part of the US line- im sure one could be had directly from Sweden, but the distributors never brought any- and it was their opinion that the classic was a better choice anyway..some things are beyond control, such as getting a batch of Kingstons and Heirs without pickguards- no go.

    it's funny- this reminds me.. we were in Santiago, Chile on tour once , and we were relaxing after ashow at the hotel bar. Our musical director walks up with a tray of beers, " money is no object" he said, " i'm buying the beer , and it's imported!!" on the tray were several bottles of Budweiser. Which goes to show, i read recently where it said Glockenlang was cheaper in Europe than SWR or some other common brand in the US. Here, you have to take out a second mortgage. Those prices are WELL below dealer cost here in the US- maybe i should take a little trip to Sweden, for business purposes, of course ;)
    you guys wanna give me a shopping list??
