    I bet that sounds killer. $650 sounds a bit much, but I would pay it if it sounds the way I imagine it would. Great speaker and amp. That will be a very full sounding combo. Is the cab open or closed back?

    6CA7 is an EL34. I've watched these jump from $300 to $500 in the last year.

    I have a feeling that amp cranked would take out a 15" in short order. Great amp, though.

    I'd offer $450.

    The price and demand for YBA-1s seems to have gone up a bit lately, there was a super clean head here locally for $450 but I had just bought a new head a week earlier so I had to pass. They're fantastic amps, very much like a Plexi.

    With that cab and speaker, I'd pay $650 as long as you're confident it's clean and recapped and ready to go. These typically go for $450 - 600 for the head alone. You are not going to find a better sounding plexi inspired rig for less. If it's been modded or may need work soon, bring the price down to $500 or less.

    That amp is loud as can be... used to have one, but mine needed some work. Might pick up another one (w/ an attenuator) again soon

    I had one briefly that I plugged into my 15 cab with a Big Ben. It sounded loud and huge. Great rig, but more than I needed.
