Found one very cheap. Good buy?
How cheap? I have a 68. Kind of a bassman type of sound. Loud and clean with reverb and tremolo. Great with pedals. A good score if it works.
It works. I'm not sure what year. It's on ebay, very cheap with 1 day left, hopefully it'lll stay cheap. Using it with pedals would be ideal.
I have a YRM-1, and it is my new fave, especially with pedals. Run into a WGS Alnico in a Goodsell 1x12 cab means heaven for me.
If you get it, let us know via a user report.
Couldn't find it on EBay.
Will you share the details?
They're great amps. Good reverb, decent bias vary trem. Can be mighty scooped sounding with the wrong speakers. Can benefit from and easily be modded. If they haven't been robbed, they tend to be loaded with telefunken preamp tubes and mustard caps. Huge Hammond iron... Head weighs almost as much as an AC30...
It'll be used with two LPs, one with Bare Knuckle Mules, the other with Lollar P90s. I definitely don't want scooped sounding....hmm.
It's on UK Ebay....
If you weren't so far away, I'd offer to buy it from you if you decided to try it and didn't like it. You shouldn't have any trouble selling if that's the case (and it's priced reasonably).
Ah, of course. Somehow it didn't show up in my search when I used "worldwide" as a setting. It looks great.
I hope you get it.
I was looking at these and realized it was a lot of amp. Lots of volume. Way more than I would ever use.
I just sold one. It was an awesome amp, it just never got used and I needed the money. It is a LOUD clean sound.
Probably might be a bit loud for me, but if it goes mega cheap I'll be a fool not to snap it up.
I use 6V6's in my YRM-1, takes the volume down a bit.
Auction ended. Was it you that got it, Loobster?
Give us a link, I'd like to see it.
Unfortunately not. Someone sniped me and their top bid was higher than mine in the last few seconds. Didn't have time to up my bid.
I'd rather a YBA-1 so at least now this'll give me the opportunity to get one of those instead. Gotta keep my eyes peeled.
Sorry to hear that. I find the "local pickup only" sales tend to be a bit lower priced in the end, in general, but EBay is tricky, with automated sniping, etc.
Good luck on the YBA-1.
Exactly! Bastards! I'm looking for a YBA-1 or a Marshall 1987x reissue head.
