so after the humming noise with my crappy solid state amp head. I decided to check out some tube heads. I walk in guitar center and see the genz benz eldiablo 100 head and I look at the price and it says 600 used. I grab a guitar with emg's the same ones that I have.
I plug in a try this thing out and I was really impressed with every thing about this head. I loved the tone, because it sounded different then all the other top brand heads. the price scared me because I know for a good tube head usually you need to spend at least a grand. I search on google and seen that they cost 1400 brand new.
is there something I'm missing. it was in excellent shape, so why was it only 600? I know you guy's know about gear so all your opinions mean alot to me. should I jump on this head at that price?
if this head is as good as I think it is, I assume its not going to be there for long. I didnt have cash at the very moment, so couldn't get it right then. your oppinions mean alot thanx for all the help so far guy's.
I don't know much about the heads as far as quality/reliability/etc but then, the fact that I haven't heard anything seems promising
I remember seeing a band that used them and it sounded great (the amp, not necessarily the band ).
As for why it's so cheap used, probably because the GC employees don't know much about it, and figure most people haven't heard of it, so it'll be harder to sell. It's an oddball amp. People will pay more for Marshall or Mesa simply because it's what everyone uses.
