I have heard good things about them too, but never heard one in person, let alone played on one.

I don't know a lot about them except that all the Sunn rigs I've seen pictures of have been monstrous. They have a very good reputation, though, and the one cabinet I've seen was as well-built as any old Peavey. Do you know what model it is? What's the price?
Nope, no sig here.

That?

Sounds good to me. You get a good sounding, well built amp for less than most brand-new stuff. Yes, please.

I will note that as I understand it, it's 300W @ 2-ohms, and you probably shouldn't run it that low.

i don't understand really what ohms ratings on speakers mean...

A bass player for a local punk outfit uses a Sunn head into the fridge and his sound is quite good. When I'm at a local show I'm usually too busy doing other things to analyze someone's bass tone...

Older rating of output power tend to be less generous than today's standards. So that 300W @ 2ohms is probably a very loud 300W.

Old Trace Elliot heads are the same, dont be fooled by 130W output, its loud as.

Go and try it out. I've never really heard of them before, but if you can try it out. 300 watts at 2 ohms is pretty loud. It's not about the watts, it's the output, isn't it?

Also 300 watts at 2ohms is awkward, most cabs are 8 ohms so if your running it at 2 ohms your eitheir going to need 4 8 ohm cabs or 2 4ohms or 1 2 ohm cab. 4 ohm cabs are generally more expensive because their made by higher end amp manufactorers. The only company that i know that makes a 2 ohm cab is EBS, but you have to special order that.

You can get quite a few cabs at 4 ohms. It wouldn't be a problem to find them. The choice would just be slightly more limited than looking for 8 ohm cabs.

Avatar has cheap 4-ohm cabs.

My point was that older stuff tends to not agree with 2-ohms so well...running it at 2.67 might be better. (one 8-ohm cab and one 4-ohm cab)

My suggestion would be a 4-ohm 115 and an 8-ohm 210.

The Sunn 300T became the Fender 300 PRO when Fender bought Sunn. I've actually seen a few Sunn 300T heads inside Fender cases.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

^ That's interesting..I hadn't noticed before. You're right though, exact same thing.

Yeah, guess it just had a Fender badge. Not sure if it had a decal or not. The badge was there, though. And it said Sunn 300T on the back. I'm tempted to say made in Australia but I might be imagining things.

So is that sunn a tube or solid state amp? if it's tube he could run it at 2 ohms safely because the amp changes the ohms internally anyway. if it's tube it's gonna be plenty loud.

It's not tube...it's the one in post #6. Pretty simple unit, but I bet it sounds amazing.
