    I've got an almost new TFB-550 and just commited to another bass, so the 420 must go. It's had all the current upgrades done by Dave Funk, including the fan, fan switch, DI ground lift switch and speakon connector. It's in excellent condition, but has a few surface scratches that don't go through the paint and couple of corner dings that were previously disguised with black marker. The hole that was punched for the speakon connector has been touched up with marker as well. You can only see the touchups if you look for them. All the jacks and controls are clean and function perfectly.
    If you know about Thunderfunk amps then you already know how great they are, so I won't bore with my comments other than to say that I can't think of another amp that I'd rather have and I tried most of 'em out there. Let me know if you have any questions or need more specific info.

    $670 shipped if paid with a USPS Money Order or $680 by Paypal.
    U.S. sale only and shipping to lower 48 states included. Sorry, but I do not ship internationally anymore.
    You can check my ebay and talkbass feedback as "ric426" and I have good referrences available from other transactions as well.

    The 420 is rated at 240 watts @ 8 ohms and 400 watts @ 4 ohms. I gotta tell ya though, it's a *loud* 400 watts. I had an Eden WT-400 when the Thunderfunk arrived, so I did a bunch of A/B testing between the two. The TFB-420 blew away the WT-400 in every way but physical size. I sold the WT-400 a few days later. I dig Thunderfunk amps so much now that I jumped at the chance to pick up an almost new TFB-550 a couple of weeks ago. I was going to keep the 420, but then a Sadowsky Metro came along last weekend that I just couldn't resist, so the TFB-420 is for sale. Ironically, I'm getting the bass from the same guy I bought the 550 from.
     
  4. Are you interested in a trade? Also, you are fairly close so what is your price w/o shipping?

    I am seriously interested in buying this thing, but my dad can't spot me the money right now, due to bills and such. In a few weeks or so I could probably buy it.

    Not quite. Changed his mind, so it's still available.

    I might consider a trade at this point so let me know what you've got. If it's something I'd like to have I'll sell my Skyline Hollow Body to cover the funds I was hoping to get for the TFB420. FWIW, probably the only amp I'd be interested in would be an Acoustic Image amp and I don't need any speakers at this point.

    Too bad for him. Would you consider giving up one of those Epifani's? If so, I may work in a deal with you.
    Let me know what you think,
