Aguilar AG500 Dual Channel Head £375
Chepstow, Wales

Recommended Posts

Moving my Aguilar AG500 dual channel head if you're looking for a whole lot of bass for a whole lot less cash.
Another user listed a head (not the same one) on BC couple of years ago for £500 (link below), previous listings on ebay (Japan) for £600 (mounted) and £1115 (non mounted, go figure) and on reverb in the US for £400 + Shipping(links also below). Can't presently find any live sales on ebay...

Notes: has been used, I'm the second owner (to my knowledge), but it's in good shape. Minor aesthetic note - status bulb works but cover lost, operation bulb is out but cover in place. Illustrated in video!
Would prefer pick up but will courier (at buyers expense and insurance). Further pics and vid: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1n5oluLmDP0FnQyMq3tSwb1Ir06g1-2d4?usp=sharing

Holler with any questions!

Ta, DeepEnd.

      Moving to Canada so this needs to be sold ASAP - needs to be gone before 23/11/2020. Great condition. Fantastic amp, absolutely would not be selling unless I had to. Priced at £SOLD for quick sale. Prefer London Collection (based in Forest Hill SE23). No trades. 
      Happy to deliver within reason. Also, I do have a self-made little carry case. Not in photos, but can be used to transport. 
      Here's a link to specs: http://www.markbass.it/product-detail/little-mark-iii/
      Thanks all!

      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 but I don't use it any more and I have sold the speaker cab that went with it.

      So I am pondering on maybe getting myself a proper bass amp here coming the 1st of November, next month, since I am currently just using the poweramp section of my 160W Peavey Solo Special 112 guitar combo, with the build in 12" guitar speaker unit disconnected and the amp instead hooked up with a 4Ohm, 400W, SWR Triad I bass cab with 1x15 + 1x10" + tweeter horn, and even if I actually really like that tone that gives me I just absolutely love the classic Trace Elliot tone, once having owned a 1x15" 130W GP7SM combo that I was very very fond of, and kind of regret selling.
      So the question is, should I get the extremely tiny and light weight, relatively new, 200W Trace Elliot ELF amp head, which I will buy from brand new, or get the used, relatively old, and quite heavy, 300W GP7SM amp head, that is currently for sale for just about the same price as I can get a new ELF?
      I would appreciate arguments for and against, beside the obvious advantages the ELF got size and weight wise, making it extremely easy to transport, unlike the old GP7SM head, that I know will be quite heavy.
      Like would there be any obvious noticeable difference in the tone they respectively produce when set flat and not using the pre-shape of the GP7SM head (which I will definitely not be using anyway, hate mid scooped tones).
      What would you chose and why?
      And what would I lose getting one over the other, beside the obvious warranty, ease of transportation, less EQ tweaking options, lack of pre-shape functions (which, as said, I won't have any use for anyway), and 100W less power, of the ELF?
      Or should I rather, since I am actually quite satisfied with the tone I get now from the Peavey, which also got plenty of enough power for my use, forget about the temptation of getting a Trace Elliot amp in my possession again, and instead use my money on some new effect pedals that I also have cravings for?
