    Well, new to me anyway.

    Looked just a bit rough upon arrival. OCD strikes again!

    Now just need a new battery (ordered) and wall charger.
    Have powered it with (8) D batteries and a USB battery bank,
    but it won’t take full volume… not yet full powered.

    Wonder how long before I’ve plugged it into the vehicle?:rolleyes:

    And no, I did not paint the tolex.

    Great little amps. I had one I found (bad battery) for $25 at a pawn shop. Found the proper battery on Amazon for cheap and found a proper charging cord for $1 at a thrift store.

    I actually played a gig with it next to a fella using a Fener Bassman and a 2X12 cab. While under powered for the gig, it did the job.

    I used to run it stereo with my Roland Cube Street, using a Digitech EX-7 to split the signal. HUGE tones from these wee amps.

    Congrats....I think you're going to like it.

    Thanks BB!
    I was just thinking about similar stereo setup too.
    (“Great minds…" ehh?)

    The older, early battery-powered portables are kinda “my thing”.

    So now I tell myself that I can STOP… once I acquire a CRATE Limo!

    And yes, very impressed with it thus far.

    But never one to leave well-enough alone, will probably wire an extension
    speaker jack for a 10 or 12” solo speaker cab. And looking forward to using
    that “Insert” jack for effects (looper, etc.).

    Big fun in small packages!
