These don't come around very often - If you're reading this then you probably already know a bit about them......
I picked this up in an exchange a few months back - I had too many amps, needed to shift one and was offered this as a trade. We've all been there - curiosity gets the better of you and you think "what the hell, it'll be fun to try something new!"
The fact remains i still have too much stuff, I've bought a little sports car that i want to spend a few quid on and i need to move the amp on to finance it. (There's going to be a nice Stingray up for sale soon as well!)
A fabulous boutique amp that is hand made using absolutely top notch components by Dave Funk in the USA and it's a holy grail amp to some. Super rare in this country and housed in a top notch Boschma 4u lightweight rack case. The 2u amp is designed to run hot as the casing is actually the heat sink so i put it in a 4u case and added vented blanking plates to help the heat dissipation just in case.
Its the 'B' version which has The Switch -a switchable Tube Emulation circuit so you can run a Solid State or Tube style sound at any volume (the original B550 had a circuit that got tubier sounding as you turned the volume up but you couldn't switch it off). It's 550 watts into 4 ohms, has a headphone out and line in, a limiter and a fully parametric eq as well as standard treble and bass controls. The secret weapon controls are the 'Enhance' and 'Timbre' controls - you can literally set up your sound using these 2 controls without touching an eq control - they're brilliant. Oh and it only weighs 17lbs so is by no means heavy to carry about.
Collection ideally from near Stansted Airport but i could possible drop off by arrangement in the Essex/Herts/London/Kent/Suffolk areas as i travel about a bit for work. Definitely not up for any trades this time around though 🙂 And I don't like couriers (no offence if you're a courier, its not personal) so please don't ask....
Here's a link to the manual which is quite a good read https://www.thunderfunk.com/Downloads/Thunderfunk_OwnersManual.pdf
And here are some pictures below - if you need to know anything else just drop me a message.
Thanks for looking.

Fabulous old school solid state 1200 watt (at 2 ohms) bass head. Amazing valve like levels of grunt, plenty of low end but no mud. Ran this on a three band tour with the other bass players sharing it so got to hear it being played, and it sounded wonderful. I believe they have some link with the legendary Thunderfunk amps, but do not know the exact history. If anyone does know please feel free to post or PM, thanks.
My gigging for the next year means I don't have the luxury of taking a large, very heavy (24kg) amp with me, so I'm back on Class d.
Comes with ABS flight case (with a few scars, but nothing serious).
Edited to add trades - always happy to consider any musically related trades - PA bits possibly, 5 stringers, guitars. Give me a try.
Hi guys, just come across and got a place on a series of masterclasses happening in September. Pretty cool to get Laurence Cottle up in the north (probably the best bass player I’ve seen live).
might be of interest to other northerners.
