Yeah - got too many amps too - ha

Here's a cool little Vox voiced head and killer cabinet from 3rd Power.

The head is from their Dream Solo run of a few years back, where they made a series of lunchbox-sized heads with individual voices from their larger amps. The Dream Solo 3 is kind of unique in that it's a Vox style amp running a pair of 6V6 power tubes (still has the EF86 preamp tube to get the classic Vox sound). 22 watts, with a 'stage/studio' switch that cuts the power in half. Though it's sort of unneccesary - because this one also has the 3rd Power Hybrid Master control on the back.

Has a 3 position Brilliance control, which gives you Normal, 'slightly boosted', and Top Boost voices, along with a Top Cut control and global Presence control - lots of ways to tweak your tone on this one! Has an effects loop as well, along with 4, 8 and 16 ohm speaker outputs. In excellent condition.

Also up for grabs is a 3rd Power Switchback 1 X 12 cabinet (that looks great with this head!) These were very unique cabinets in a couple of ways - first they feature a triangular sound chamber (using baffles inside) to cut down on reflections/standing waves inside the cabinet. Second, it also has a removable triangular panel on the back, so you can run it as either a closed-back or open back cabinet. This one's loaded with a WGS ET-65 - great sounding and versatile speaker that mates well with a lot of different heads. Also in excellent condition

$895 for the head, $450 for the cabinet. Northern Ohio guys - I will bring it to you and knock a chunk off the price to not have to ship the cab!
