I've got an Allen Brown Sugar 1x15 combo that I need to sell. No trades. Facing a big tax liability soon and a variety of expenses in addition. Price is $1400 net to me (firm).

Amp is in NJ and I will drive a ways, including a Manhattan delivery if need be. The amp was built by David Allen (it's signed) and has a 15" Legend speaker, which sounds great. Also comes with an as new LeCover padded cover. Also comes w/ a tube set for 6v6 operation.
