    I am the original owner, bought November 2017. Have only used it in my living room with my upright bass. Just doesn't get enough use so letting her go. Awesome awesome setup and plenty of all tube power. Also have an Ampeg cover I will include. It is pristine as I received it. Price lowered due to local pickup only. $1500.00

    Oh man this thing is sweet! If I had more room and didn't already have a vintage B-15N I'd be all over this.

    I've been struggling to get some more info about these but did not find much. Could you inform about the weight and send some pix of the wiring? That'a very nice piece of gear you have here. Thanks

  13. A picture is worth a 1000 words...
  14. I went to his website and found it to be lacking. "All show and no go" a few glossy pics and zero info. A one line description with no specs, nada. I'll admit it looks very nice.

    Sounds awesome as well
  17. I fully believe this is a very good amp. And yes I read post #9. My point is simply in this day and age it takes very little effort and money to put together a very professional Looking and informative website. Including technical information on his builds. Materials, transformer manufacture, Demonstration Videos, amp, cab, Tolex, grill cloth, options etc. Possibly it’s unfinished, possibly he’s an “artist” and takes little interest in such things. Perhaps he’s independently wealthy and does this for fun. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, call me too curious and cranky.

    Those are reasonable suggestions and ones potential customers could benefit from. However, he could be just one guy doing everything and hasn’t had the time to get his site fully together. He’s probably in his shop making amps, making sure his supply chain is good, and trying to keep up with his orders.

    I think what Chateauabovall did in calling could be the best thing in finding more information. Give him a call.
  19. You’re missing the point. I’m not his customer, if I were, and had enough interest, I would have called. Just as I have called Duke Lejune and Mike Arnopol about their boutique cabs. however many professionals with money to spend look at this, for example and think, “if he can’t finish building a website........... I’ve said enough. And I only hope talking about his amps might generate more business. I really wish everyone the best, especially now.
    I don’t have an interest in lugging a beautiful tube bass amp around anymore than I have to.
    When I do have the urge I have a pristine Sunn 200S and a second clone of same built around 70’, etc. (here’s a pic of my Polaris 200S clone) and I’m outta here.
