    I don't know a whole lot about this amp and there's not much info available about it online. What I do know, is that it sounds excellent and has volume to spare through all of my cabs. I'm pretty sure it puts out around 400w into 4ohms, but a post on here suggested it can handle 2.67ohms @ 500w.

    It's a little beat but works perfectly. Rattles the walls enough on top of my my EV 2x15 to send my 4x12 Ampeg V2 guitar rig running for cover. Nice graphic eq, and sounds good distorted if you crank the preamp or, god forbid, crank the power amp into clipping.

    $250 shipped and paypal'd. I just became a supporting member here, but I have already sold a $1500 p-bass without any problems.

    Come on guys, this thing is cheap, powerful, built like a tank, and sounds great. What's not to love?

    As I recall ROAD was Rickenbacker's amp line in the early '80s. I had their 1x15 combo and it was killer, I wish I still had it. You could crank the channel volume and get great tube like distortion.

    Do you have any clips of this thing dirty? As in with the gain cranked? Maybe a reference tone on an album you can point out?
