Warwick Hellborg Stereo Power Amp 2x250 or 500 watts bridged - £350

Recommended Posts

A Warwick Hellborg stereo power amp - 500 watts bridged or 2x250. In superb, virtually unused condition. Possibly the most over-engineered bass-specific power amp ever built. There’s a ton of information around on these - wonderful, impeccably solid tone with characteristic harmonic colouration. Comes with rear rack brackets (very unusual!). Eye-wateringly expensive on release - about £1600 - there aren’t too many of these around. Only reason for sale is this weighs 46lbs.  If you're young/strong or have a crew, or if you have a studio/rehearsal facility where this can remain static, it really is a unique and superb amp (one that was used by Prince, Jack Bruce and various other funk/rock luminaries). Collection only in Manchester would be much preferred.  It's not easy to lift this to pack it, though I may be able to find an appropriate (strong) carton.  £350 (quite a bargain for an amp of this quality I'd have thought).  No trades thanks.

Please note, the amp does not come with the rack case in the images

Quite a bargain for what's probably the best solid-state bass power-amp ever built. Got the (a tad) lighter 500w mono version, many builders do a complete rig for its 42lbs or so, but none of them reach such thickness, clarity, and well, heft.
