Darkglass m900v2 Accident

Recommended Posts

Hey all, so I just got off of my first gig with this amp (it's absolutely killer by the way, had to save up after quite a few gigs in order to get it) and I had an accident with it while packing up. I placed the amp in the Darkglass carrying bag on top of my cabs (about 5 feet from the ground) and it took a tumble when someone knocked into it. It was an outdoor gig, so it fell onto cement. It only has a small dent, which I'd be fine with, but it actually inhibits the ability to use the mute button (some would say the most important part of the amp). I was wondering if any of you in the New York area know where to get these amps serviced, and whether or not those places would do a repair like this. Included are two pictures with the dent, and you can see how it throws the panel out of alignment. Thank you for reading this, any and all help is appreciated. (P.S. I'm an electrical engineering college student so keeping the cost down of the repair would be awesome so I can afford textbooks next semester. Thanks again)IMG_0693.IMG_0604.

Take it apart, bend it into alignment and file the burrs off.

If you are doing electrical engineering a set of torx bits and a screwdriver holder, pliers and a set of small files will be invaluable down the line anyway.

Use folded paper or card so using hefty pliers to grip the panel doesn't mark it.

      I’m selling my Darkglass M900 V1 amp, plus Darkglass case. This amp is in brand new condition. It comes with the original box / packaging. The footswitch has never been used. This amp has been used in rehearsals, and on 6 gigs which were the recent ones (December 2019) I did supporting Steve Harris' British Lion around the UK. If it helps, this amp was played through his Iron Maiden speakers and it sounded even more amazing, but that could just because I couldn't believe I was playing through his speakers, and/or touring with my hero.   Anyway,. I have finally shifted to In Ears, so this is now surplus to requirements. An incredibly versatile amp, and not just for metal. In covers all eras of music, easily. It’s also, very powerful. Collection from Cardiff is preferred but I am happy to meet within a 50-mile radius of Cardiff, and if preferred, I'm happy to post at the buyer's expense. Grab a real bargain, now. If you have any questions, please drop me a PM, I am happy to help in any way I can. No trades please, as I have all the equipment I need. Thank you. Take care, and Happy New Year to one and all.

      Hi Guys 
      I am selling a 2 channel Aguilar AG500 amp head. It is in pretty nice condition, and comes with the pictured case, power cable and also the channel footswitch. It is a really amazing amp in my opinion, and the only reason I am selling it is because I now live in Barcelona and have resorted to a much more lightweight setup. 
      Collection from Maidstone, Kent. Until the 5th February, I can possibly sort out postage within the UK at buyers expense (courier and packaging). 
      You can contact me on here, or by mobile at +44 seven 429 58812 six. 
      P.s. I have been locked out of my old basschat account but can be found here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/profile/11275-matthewkeys/

      In the time I've been here I've learned that not all BCers are able to tweak their basses or do soldering jobs. So, this list is for those who could do with a hand to do those small jobs.

      Some folk listed here may do the job for free, others may make a small charge, or charge for parts. The cost is down to you to negotiate with the other member.
