It sounds rather Fendery, but has more gain then a fender. With a nice distortion pedal it sounds real nice. i paid around $650 or so. Also in case you guys don't know. This is NOT a power amp, its a complete amp HEAD in a rack space package!!!

I'd guess $650.00

If you ever decide you don't want it, I will drive down there and gladly take it off your hands. I NEVER see these for sale anymore, and regret ever selling mine.

Very Happy NAD!

Re: N.A.D (new amp day)

I was thinking of trying their Double Shaman pedal. It has some pretty good sounds from what I can tell from internet videos.

Rivera worked many years for fender. I'm sure the clean channel of that amp sound awesome. With the right tubes I'm sure they rocks.

I put some new EL34's in it and it sounds better now. I didn't change the pre amo tubes because they appear to be vintage RCA's from the 60's maybe, oh yea, one of them is also a mullard of some sort.
