SOLD ON BOOK OF FACES Valeton TAR-20b 20 watt Bass Micro Head Amp

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Only purchased in the last couple of weeks, bought it as a practice option to my Little Bastard valve head as this has aux in and headphone out, ideal for practice.

However this has been used for all of 10 minutes as not long after the purchase I had an opportunity to pick up an Ashdown B-Social combo this does everything the Valeton was purchased for.

It is as new condition complete with all packaging.

£90 includes delivery

Picture of the head against my LB30 to Further indicate size.

The gain is a nice option to give a bit of breakup, the chorus is an alternative to practice with but won’t replace your dedicated pedals.

      Trace 4x10 with horn, red stripe series, padded Roqsolid cover, professionally recovered for me in Trace Green carpet, only home use since. Provenance of being owned / used by Yolanda Charles (Paul Weller, Robbie Williams, Squeeze) 
      Trace 4x10 no horn red stripe series, padded Roqsolid cover, professionally recovered for me in Trace Green carpet, only home use since.
      The amp is mint, the cabs excellent, a few scratches to the grill mean I can't say mint. Altogether a fantastic rig, much too good to be stood idle....

      Made I think between 1967 and 1969. Serial number 45830.
      Has been serviced with one or two valves replaced. Still sounds brilliant but rather heavy and I don't use it any more. Could be sold together with a 4x12 HH speaker cab which I have advertised separately.

      Selling my Blackstar BEAM practice combo  in excellent like new condition. Great practice unit for home use, decent Bluetooth music player too used sparingly.
      The unit is designed for bass, electric and acoustic guitars.  It comes with two bass specific effects on board, envelope and distortion.
      it is also a fully functional audio interface.
      Only selling as I replaced with an Ashdown unit.
      unit is like new, £125 includes delivery.

      Up for sale what was my trusty gigging amp, a Taurus Qube 450. 450W @ 4 ohms, 350W @ 8 ohms. From Polish manufacturer Taurus, these amps are not very often seen but one of the better class D amps I've tried. A quick google search will bring up some great reviews of these. Plenty of punch, analog preamp, and the EQ is really intuitive. I've been in two minds whether to sell this or not, but it's not being used since I stopped gigging a while ago and an impending house move means I'm unfortunately having to get rid of things I don't really want to! 
      Unfortunately I no longer have the original box for this, but will be shipped securely and well packaged. The price is £280 including courier.
      Some blurb from the Taurus website:
      Taurus Qube - 450 bass head is the smallest and the lightest bass amplifier in Taurus' amps line. The compact size of the head is attained by applying the newest, most advanced technology. The SMPS (Switching Mode Power Supply) power supply and Class D power amplifier in conjuction with classic analog preamp provide great efficency, power, dynamics and sound selectivity. As all Taurus amps, the Qube - 450 is very easy to operate. The MLO system equalization control achieves easy and intuitive tailored sound. This sound correction simplifies finding the right tone colour of the instrument.

      MLO System

      The "MLO" (Mid Level Optimization) is Taurus proprietary system allowing for an easy, intuitive and extremely comfortable optimization of the overall sound of the bass guitar.

      The MLO System provides all new possibilities. It ensures most accurate proportion of medium frequencies in accordance of your manual settings of bass and trebles. This very intuitive and logical system supports musician's choice for most desirable sound.

      In addition, the MLO equalizer ensures virtually no change in overall volume while changing the bass frequencies. Unlike most of the standard amps, adjusting bass frequency the musician notices change of the sound not the volume.
