    Just found a used one these today for 75$.

    Its has 2 6CA7 and 3 12ax7a's in the preamp. 90w at 8 ohms

    Should i go for it? I have an urge to buy it just so I can bi-amp, even though it will be teamed up with a 200w yba200. It also has some mad vintage mojo and it would be nice to team it up with a vintage cab. What do you guys think? I don't need it, perse, but would like it. And at 75$ I can't really go wrong.
     
  2. Why are you asking?

    75$ now will turn into $1200 later on down the road

    Well the guy that was selling it doesn't wanna drop it off, even though I'd be him paying 50$. He also refuses to ship it. i can't pick it up because he is 2 hours away, we'd be meeting halfway anyway.

    This is bogus. I am not happy.

    Drive. It's totally worth it. I drove 2 hrs away to get one. I'd drive 6.

    I would, I told him that if he would hold it till the weekend I would pay him 140$ So I could drive up. Be he would have none of that. I'm kinda bummed out.

    At a price like 70, I am starting to think something is wrong with them. They looked in good condition, But I am thinking they didn't even work.


    I'll keep lookin..
     
  10. Most of the other ones in Ontario are going for around $500.

    It's a tube amp. If just the transformer is good, it's a steal for $75.

    They're not making these anymore...these amps rule. Even if you had to entirely retube it, you'd have a monster head for a decent price.

    Did a little research too, when retubing mine. If you wanna know the right tubes to get for it, to retain the characteristic "shimmer", I can dig up the info for ya.

    This is pretty much a done deal. He won't hold it till saturday when I can actually get a ride up. I am really bummed out about it too.
