    Ok, a trip back to the '70s...

    What prominent bassists used the Sunn Coliseum Bass Amp?

    With Beck, Bogert and Appice, Tim Bogert used one (or more) with 4x15 Altec loaded cabinets...dig that tone on BBA and BBA Live!!!! Chris Squire used the Coliseum Lead amp and guitar cabinets. Ox used Coliseum Slaves.

    Who else used the Coliseum Bass head?

    I'll take a W.A.G. at this one, BillyB. Jack Cassidy?
     
  3. You covered the guys that I know of that used them.I used one at a couple of gigs back then but couldn't get a tone I liked,it was too dry sounding to me,my Concert Bass head sounded better to me. I probably didn't spend enough time dialing it in.The Ox and Chris Squire had much better luck with them of course.
