Marshall spiel -

Nobody does valve (tube) amplification better than Marshall. When it comes to bass players who demand a high-powered, reliable, and musical sounding bass amplifier, the Marshall VBA400 delivers.

The warm, deep tone of the VBA400 not only expands and enhances the sound of your bass when playing live, it also adds a unique, 3-D quality to recordings.

Designed for serious bass player, the VBA400 takes advantage of Marshall's years of vacuum tube amplifier experience. The VBA400 has the massive tonal power of eight 6550 power tubes, plus three ECC83 and one ECC82 preamp tubes.

Front-panel controls are purposefully minimal, with 3-band EQ allowing hands-on tonal adjustment, especially when using the 3-position 'Contour' control. Stage bassists will also appreciate the 'Tuner Mute" facility to mute the signal to the loudspeakers and the DI for silent tuning between songs.

My spiel -

Just serviced ($310) by Ryan @ Custom Audio, couple of tubes replaced, rebiased etc. All good.
Can provide receipt with all details including work done, wattage readings etc.
Huge sound, but if you're after one, you probably know that.
Has a rip in the tolex on the front that can be seen in photos (has been glued down) and a couple of other small rips, nothing major.

Have the matching 4 x 12 cab too, may sell as a set but i'm probably going to hold onto that because it rules.

These are $3600 new.
Selling because i'm upgrading.
