New Amp Day--B-52 AT-100

Well, most of you know my beloved Legacy head blew last week. I found a B-52 AT-100 at a decent price, per Ryc's advice and ordered it. It just arrived 10 minutes ago. I watched the small delivery girl drop it on my driveway. I opened it up and saw the casing falling apart: bottom cracked and drooping, sides pulled out, etc. The power and standby switches were pushed completely in, so I pulled them out--dead! Always UPS--never had an issue with USPS. So, my new amp day is a BUST!

That really sucks! So you watched her drop it? They should be covering costs then I would hope.

Already filed a claim. It sucks, as I got a really good deal on it.

Got my eye on a few, but I'm about to pull the trigger on a V3. Might just have to get both!

Re: New Amp Day--B-52 AT-100

I know it's difficult, but I urge you to hold off on the V3 til you at least hear what the B-52 can do for you............especially knowing your taste's in guitar players. You MIGHT end up passing on the V3 altogether. I might know of one locally that I can get for $250 that's in brand new condition...... the guy was selling it on consignment and would'nt separate the head and AT412A cab but it been sitting in my buddy's shop (Players Guitars, Worth IL.)for over 6 months....he might be willing to separate them now........He wanted $500 for the set.

Re: New Amp Day--B-52 AT-100

That just might work! If it's got the footswitch, see if he'll sell just the head......please. If he will, let me know and we'll go from there. And, YES--your opinion is highly valued, as you do know what I'm after. In fact, I think we're in a constant mind-meld on this stuff. Now, if we can just work on the kid...
