I'm sure there are a few folks out there that would want it for the clean cosmetics alone. The banner and 'note' are prized items, and the grille cloth? Ferget about it!

Yes, that's a cool one, even lacking the amp.

Seth, I saw Bob Rissi at the NAMM show either last year or the year before ... check out his website:

http://rissonamplifiers.com/id8.html

There is an e-mail address given there that you might try (there may be additional info on a "Contact" page, but I didn't look around for one).

This has been a great bass rig for me. I have a Mark King Ashdown going to 12 inch speaker mic'd by the re20. The bass signal is split at the Mark King and goes out to the 65 ish Ampeg b15n to the second 12 inch to the akg d12e. This set up has been both rock solid and very flexible. I would keep it, but the little studio has shut down and I am now faced with storing all of my gear for who knows how long, probably years. A decent storage unit in DC is 120 per month x 12 = ouch. But then again, I do love this bass set up and will miss it greatly if it sells.

well -- I can't upload the photo. If anyone is really and truely interested in this, I can send them the picture.

I will be picking this up from Philly this Sunday and since I purchased storage today, I will be putting it directly into storage.

I've been wanting one of those amps for quite some time. The problem will lye in the shipping for an object so big.

Hello all -- After a decade of silence on this post, I will revive it. I once again considering selling the transonic.

Welcome back to the forums, Seth! Are you still having trouble uploading the picture of the amp itself, or is that in one of your Google albums?

I can help scale a picture down if need be.
