Marshall VBA400 $1800

Post by bassketcase » 02 Oct 2017, 00:07

Well I never thought this day would come but my spine just cant handle the heft of this awesome beast anymore.

Thick creamy, driving and incredibly loud, 400w of all- tube goodness. So much clean headroom and it has a lovely pre amp to run OD if you dial up the pre amp gain. Also, the power tube saturation is the best I have heard in any tube bass amp. Be warned though that you need to be at near window blowing levels to make it happen :)

I have recently replaced the 8x6550 stock valves, and preamp tubes, with premium Tungsols ($400). In excellent condition, the amp is ~4 years old with 1 owner. There is one very small tear in the tolex (pictured) but otherwise the amp is pristine.

This has been my mainstay amp for the past few years however I am now downsizing. The only real down side is the weight. It has a massive output transformer and a lot of internal glass so weighs quite a bit (around 35kg) but the side carry handles are great especially if your band mates are nice and help you load it.

Seriously killer amp though. Regrettable sale.

$1800 - I am in Perth so a local sale would be easiest but I m always open to options.

Images up bump!

Open to partial trades as well but they would need to be as part of a local sale.

Cheers
