BTA 400


Our Perspective:
This beautiful rig just came in from the original owner - it is in pristine condition. It thunders like no other! The head has a anvil style case with wheels and the cab comes with a nice padded cover. These never come up for sale!!

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!

LOCAL PICK UP ONLY!

Handmade in our UK Custom Shop, the BTA-400 is a true contemporary bass masterpiece, for tonal connoisseurs who crave the traditional punch of valve amplification with the added flexibility of a modern preamp.

Combining the unmistakable tonal sophistication of our industry-standard ABM preamp with the sonic might of a fully-loaded 6x KT88 400W valve power amp, BTA400 is a stadium-ready powerhouse, currently rocking the world with players like Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters.

All the ABM features are there – EQ In/Out footswitching, variable Tube/Solid-State input stages, on-board compressor, Sub-Harmonic Generator, balanced DI Output with Pre/Post EQ switching, FX loop, Tuner output and more....

Variable Valve Drive – from zero to rock hero
Whatever tonal character you're seeking, the valve drive control can take you there. Engage it and set on zero for a pristine solid state preamp tone, or wind it up to increase the level of true valve overdrive that gets blended into the signal, taking you from a hint of hair to a fat overdrive.

The Drive level be preset and kicked in and out via footswitch, providing access to a huge range of clean, warm and overdriven tones.

The best EQ in the business
Imagine the simplicity of a traditional 3-band EQ but with the flexibility of a graphic equaliser...that's what the acclaimed ABM preamp delivers, and that's why it's as popular with bass-purists as it is with modern tone-shifters.

Designed to be as simple to use as a 3-band EQ but offer outstanding tonal shaping options, the ABM EQ features familiar Bass, Middle and Treble rotary controls and two pairs of additional sliders.

With the sliders set in the center position the three knobs function just like a classic 3-band EQ. But if you require more flexibility, the additional sliders allow you to fine tune the EQ in the regions the standard controls can't reach, providing a huge range of variation and allowing you to tailor the perfect sound for any gig.

The EQ can be switched in via footswitch taking you from a flat fretless sound to your favourite EQ setting instantly.

One knob compressor
Kick it in and this simple to use, great sounding compressor delivers a powerful, even sound, guaranteed to help your bass fill out any mix.

Sub-Harmonic Generator
Once heard – never forgotten. The ABM Sub-Harmonic generator adds an octave below the notes being played bringing fullness to any bass part. The Sub level is independently controllable, letting you dial in anything from a subtle hint of deep bass to a full-on subterranean funk.

Flexible Footswitching
Paired with our FS-4 footswitch (not included) the ABM comes alive for onstage use, enabling on-the-fly tonal gearshifts. With footswitchable Valve Drive, Compression, EQ and Sub Harmonic Generator, ABM puts dozens of sound combinations at your feet, without so much as an effect pedal in sight.

Professional Connections
Not that you'd expect any less from any amp loaded with the ABM preamp section, BTA400 is loaded with connectivity. A Sub-Bass output to feed the desk or an additional amp, a tuner output, transparent FX loop and a Line Input for the connection of an external sampler or sound source. Output muting cuts the signal from the DI output but leaves the tuner output 'live', allowing the player to tune up in silence.

Classic Series cabs
Classic Series cabs have been developed to be the perfect partners to our range of valve heads, offering powerful performance and striking future-retro looks in 4x10”, 4x12”, 1x15”, 6x10” and 8x10” configurations.

Handmade in the UK from the finest Birch Ply Ashdown's Classic Series bass cabinets feature custom drivers, dual Speakon/jack connectors, horn control switch (4x10” only), heavy duty vinyl covering and vintage red grilles.

20TH CENTURY LIMITED


Our Perspective:
This amplifier just came in from the original owner - he is a gigging guy and the amp shows some cosmetic dings, but sounds and performs beautifully! These amplifiers are very unique - if your looking for something different - this may be it!

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!


Overview:
One of the most wonderful amp tones ever was the sound of an electric archtop guitar plugged into the underpowered amps from the 1930's. A low fidelity tone with a focus and character to the midrange still unlike anything heard today. A tone both distorted and clear. Just listen to records made from the mid 1930's through the 1950's which feature electric guitars.
The problem with those wonderful old amps is that in today's world, you cannot use them for much of anything except recording or practice. Their low wattage and soft projection just won't cut it. As technology improved, amplifier makers were able to respond to the need for more volume, but the downside is that this wonderful tone was left behind. When power was increased, some of the soul was lost.
The great guitar tones from the 1930's and 40's were recorded before there were "made in California" amps. You may be surprised to learn that even much of the great music recorded during the 1950's was also not recorded with "made in California" amps. It is this older amplifier tone that was the design goal for the Vero 20th Century Limited. If you are serious about a more authentic old amp tone for live music, then this amplifier is for you.
We have used engineering and ingenuity to put the magic of a 1930's amplifier into a unit that will deliver 25 watts RMS. This amplifier features a new circuit designed to capture 1930's amplifier tones but with more volume capability and projection. The compact cabinet and single speaker complete this tidy little package, but make no mistake, this is a professional grade unit. Because it is not a reissue, we were free to add features like one of the best sounding reverb and tremolo combinations ever produced. This makes the 20th Century Limited a great value.
New generations are being introduced to the great American music made from the 1930's thru the 1950's. Modern covers of this music just do not quite have the soul stirring magic when played through modern amplifiers. Using an electric archtop guitar is only half of that magic combination. Go the distance and get the amplifier that belongs with that electric archtop.
The 20th Century Limited is a dynamic little amplifier which will allow your individual personality to come through. Tones range from a nasal gooselike honk to the fat hoot of a steamwhistle. No matter what style of old American music you play, the 20th Century Limited has a voice which is, as all things Vero, True.

SVT-CL Bass Head

OFTEN COPIED, NEVER SURPASSED!
The harmonically rich sound and legendary performance of the Ampeg SVT are redefined in the SVT Classic. This dynamically powerful all-tube bass amp delivers a thunderous 300-Watts of unsurpassed quality, reliability and tonal flexibility. Although other companies have tried to capture the classic all-tube sound of ’60s and ’70s Ampeg bass heads, no one can touch the SVT.

Classic Series Heads are designed for players who are looking for the authentic, vintage Ampeg tube sound that has earned the respect of the industry. With a huge and diverse group of artists endorsements, including George Clinton (P-Funk), Gene Simmons (KISS), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (Linkin Park), and far too many others to list here, the SVT-CL is a clear favorite. In the world of high performance bass amps it stands head and shoulders above the rest.

SVT-410HLF BASS ENCLOSURE

VERSATILE, HIGH FIDELITY PERFORMANCE.
This is the speaker cabinet for the bass player who demands the ultimate in a single, compact cabinet setup. The SVT-410HLF delivers devastating low-end bass, all the way down to 28Hz, thanks to four 10” speakers working together to move a tremendous amount of air. The SVT-410HLF actually moves 10% more air than two 18-inch speakers, and 25% more than three 15-inch speakers! And those leviathans simply can’t respond to transient peaks as quickly as four tens can.

The SVT-410HLF also delivers superb top-end, thanks to its 1” horn driver, strategically crossed over at 4kHz. This is a favorite enclosure for such artists as Meshell Ndegeocello, John McVie of Fleetwood Mac, and Ricky Skaggs’ bass player, Mark Fain.

The Ampeg SVT-410HLF is the supreme speaker enclosure for the multi-string bass player seeking both superior power handling and true high-fidelity performance.

Bass 400+

No band sounds better than its bass player.

Bass is the lynch pin between rhythm and melody …a big responsibility. The essential ingredients of great bass tone are Pitch, Punch and Power. Pitch, so the frequency of the note is identifiable and accurate, not the flubby rumble often heard. Punch, so the attack of each note is a precise event in time. And Power to deliver these two with authority and headroom …and to disembowel the first five rows!

Artists often call to rave about the Bass 400+™ after switching from bi- or tri- amped rigs of up to a thousand watts—exclaiming the joy of stepping forward in the mix, even to the point of leading the band. String definition so articulate that the rhythm section locks together to become one machine of unstoppable momentum.

Traditional style rotary tone controls, which shape the Bass 400’s all-tube character are fed from dual Inputs, one for modern active basses and the other for classic passive instruments. Each of these has its own separate tube input stage and volume control. A seven-band Graphic Equalizer further details the amp’s inherent musicality, making subtle or radical tonal changes possible and footswitchable.
No less than twelve fan-cooled 6L6 output tubes deliver 500 watts of transient power peaks with cool reliability. And this is no dirty dozen: this is a four-rack, twelve-pack of pure mean punch. You’ll be happy to know that tube life is commonly reported to range from three to five years, and often longer.
Other features include a 600 ohm XLR Balanced Out, Slave Out, blendable FX Loop with dual patch points front and rear, and a three-way switch for fan speed.
This thoroughbred stud has been a mainstay in the Boogie® Stable for over two decades and remains a classic in its own time…for good reason: Great tone and musical power never go out of style.

SUHR BADGER AMPLIFIERS
In 2005, we set out to design a series of portable, hand built, all-tube amplifiers. These amplifiers would be easy to use and offer players a vast array of classic British tones and would fit right at home in virtually any recording or live performance environment.

The result? In the Winter of 2006, the first Badger amplifier was born and the rest is history. Since it’s debut, players, artists, and producers alike have made the Suhr Badger their go to amplifier for an endless variety of recording and performance applications.

Now ten years later, we are proud to bring to you the next evolution of the Badger. The new Badger series is appointed in an elegant more refined look, and an expanded feature set to bring you the most sophisticated and versatile Badger amplifier to date.

MOSFET BOOST
The newly designed preamp section includes a high-voltage cascaded MOSFET Boost (footswitchable) to offer a broader range of cleaner and overdriven tones with increased dynamic range, transparency and tactile responsiveness.

SINGLE CHANNEL – CATHODE BIASED
The Suhr Badger is a single channel amp that dynamically interacts with your guitar’s volume control and responds to your playing style. The cathode biased power section lends itself to dynamic, spongey tones and requires no bias adjustment when replacing power tubes.

POWER SCALING EXPLAINED
POWER: Power Scaling emulates the tonal response of a high wattage amp on 10, at manageable volumes. Power controls the voltage that feeds the output section and in turn, the wattage. As you lower the voltage of the power section you are reducing the amount of signal it can handle before clipping the output section. To compensate for this we use the “Drive” control so you can easily scale down to 1 watt without losing tone & feel.
DRIVE: Feeds the input to the power section. With Power at 10 it acts as a master volume. As a rule of thumb, when you turn down the Power always set the Drive control within 2 numbers of the Power setting. If you set the drive lower than the power it will sound brighter, like a “master volume” amp.

FLEXIBLE CONTROL
GAIN: Controls the amount of preamp gain by controlling 2 cascading gain stages simultaneously to drive the input stage.
TONE CONTROLS: Bass, Middle and Treble tone controls for each channel are post-gain and passive cut-style. We recommend starting around 5 and dialing to taste. As you increase Gain and/or Drive we recommend dialing back the Bass to retain clarity and definition in the low-end.
EFFECTS LOOP: Every Suhr Badger includes a buffered all tube effects loop that works equally well with pedals or line level rack gear..
