And I don't mean a Bogner Ecstasy!

Here is the story, of not quite the most epic, but definitely the craziest NAD on UG. I was contacted by a guy through Gumtree (UK version of Craigslist) as I had my LTD Hybrid 300 up for sale or trade on the site. He offered to swap for his amp, which was a RAT Tube 10, which are made by Rat Valve amps over here. As well as this, he threw in a Marshall Guv'nor 2, and a Marshall Reflector pedal (better than expected but I will flip them!), which sweetened the deal, even more so in my favour as my guitar was £200 second hand, and his amp (which is no longer made by RAT) was £400 brand new.

The amp is great, it's basically a modded Fender Pro Junior. Here are the main features.

Lovely Tweed covering and Oxblood grillcloth.
15w all valve.
10" Celestion G10.
3 Band EQ.
Power Scaling ( a la Egnater Rebel 20).
Pentode/Triode switch (15-5.8w).
Boost Switch.
NFB - Negative Feedback on/off selector.
Headphone jack.
4 and 8 ohm speaker out.


I remember when I picked the amp up, this little case was rattling about in the back. Originally, I thought it was a box of spare screws or a fuse or something, and I forgot all about it on Friday when I picked up the amp. As I was dusting the amp off today for my NAD pics, I spotted it and was surprised just a little when I opened it up. I sent the guy a text but he hasn't got back to me. He should though, because if that had been anyone else who took the amp off him, or my little brothers had found it when using the amp, he would be in a world of sh*t. I'm just going to get rid of it though.

NAD - Serious Business!!!

tl;dr - DRUGS IN MY FUCKING AMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!one!!!!!!!11!!!

For those of you who missed the pictures, it's not hard to imagine what 3 pills and some brown powder looks like.

if you ever wanna get rid of that amp for free, PM me. I would be quite honored to take it off your hands.

I actually didn't noticed the narcotics on your amplifier, maybe the guy had a drug profile going on so he needed to get rid of his stash so he stashed it in your amp. Very crazy, don't get caught for holding.

Honestly you could sell those Supermans for like $15-$20 easy, it's good shit. Although it'd be more fun to keep it...


Fuck that Heroin though. Sell that shit for like $30.

3.5 megapixel camera says no!

Eh, I'm not selling this stuff, any other day I would maybe keep the pills, but I don't need the bad karma right now because of court this Friday. That Smack is going straight down the toilet though, unless the guy wants to give my guitar back in exchange for his freedom!

Just flush it all, you don't want anything to do with that ****. Sheesh, you'd think a heroin user would be better at keeping track of that stuff, as addictive as it is...


Edit: Also, if I were more aloof, this could have happened when I was in high school, but certainly not with those choices.

Double Edit: Don't try to blackmail him if you were serious, it will be his word against yours, and with a prior charge, I wouldn't risk it.

^Unless the guy he got it from had prior charges too.

Doesn't matter, when you have previous drug charges on your record, you shouldn't call the cops and tell them you are in possession of narcotics, regardless of what story you have to explain. If for no other reason, not all cops are honest. I just wouldn't even risk it, that **** would already be in the toilet if it were me.

haha, that's whacked. Don't call the cops, even if they don't mess with you over it, they are going to want to get a hold of the guy that sold you the amp. You don't want to get involved with some drughead trying to blackmail him, just get rid of it and enjoy your new amp. HNAD!

The guy is a proect manager for Siemens, he was hardly your classic junkie, and I would know living in the East End of Glasgow. Nah, I wouldn't Blackmail him, and I'm no grass, so it's getting flushed. It doesn't help that my landlord is a Sergeant in Strathclyde's finest either. This flat is like a f*cking bad omen to me!

EDIT: Not to mention, there wasn't a power cable with the amp!

Seriously though, the amp is good. It's definitely in need of a re-tube, although it still sounds sexy with some well worn JJ tubes. It has a gain and volume as well as the power scale, so you can mix the pre and power amp distortion to great effect when using the power scale.

and posting extra evidence to indict you on the internet was the best course of action you thought of?

i guess it depends on how au fait the judge is with internet memes. EDIT: seriously, though, knowing the retarded laws in this country i'd be very careful. not wanting to sound like a daily mail reader, but "it accidentally came with an amp i bought" is likely to be less useful as an excuse and will probably buy you more jail time than "i'm a dealer and was going to sell it on to schoolkids".

Obviously that's an exaggeration, but you know what i mean.

Judge Longcat presiding. Advice Dog as my brief.

It's been flushed now anyway. It was definitely Heroin, it had that characteristic vinegar smell. Don't worry though, just like Bill Clinton, I didn't inhale. F*ck that!

Anyways, on to the amp. I had a Fender Pro Junior once, and it had serious tube rattling issues at high volume. Given that my amp is essentially a modded Pro Junior, it does suffer from the same issues, but from what I can see, the wire surrounding the preamp tubes is a little bent, and this may be what's causing the rattle at high volumes. Is this then an easily rectifiable problem?

i'm not sure about the rattle, to be honest.
