Is it just me or these amps don't sell for more than 1000-1300. I followed many auctions and that's about it. -That's the Song Bird store in Ottawa

At these prices they should look at Mojave ampworks or a Roccaforte they are the best marshall type amps.:rockon2: At least, it is shure that hey are all original. My Mojave Peacemaker is going to be for sale soon I'm going after the new Komet Concorde.

73 was the transition year from a) point to point wiring to b) printed circuit board. So an all original ptp retail (Songbird is used but retail) at low 2's is OK in my books.

If it's b)PCB, then it is a bit of a sucker's price. But you sorta can't blame them. Retailer's need either gross profit or volume. I don't think they do huge volume On consignment they make 15%. Not much. Hard to imagine they make huge bucks there.

I have a certain fondness for the Ottawa store. I found a 2 channel Mesa Boogie there in the early 90's for very reasonable coin. That was my start in the tone world of tube amps.
