Sunn Sorado Bass Amp Combo w/2x15 Cabinet

The Sunn Sorado is a simple, single channel, all-tube amp made in 1968 with 2 inputs and 5 simple controls: Volume, Bass, Treble, and "Lo" and "Hi" boost switches. The head features two 6550 power tubes and two monstrous transformers producing (apparently) 60 watts of power; however, I believe that Sunn under-reported the power ratings of their amps because this thing is LOUD. With the "Lo" boost engaged, the amp has an enormous bottom end that makes it extremely powerful and warm sounding. The "Hi" boost is great for solos allows the sound to really cut through the other instruments in the room. All in all, a simple, no-fuss design that sounds incredible. Equally suited for bass or guitar. I've been using it for bass with the 2x15 cab. A 4x12 cab might be more suitable for guitar. This is the exact same amp as the Sunn 200s guitar amp. The only difference is the Sorado came with a 2X15 loaded with Sunn drivers, and the 200S came with a 2X15 loaded with JBL D140's.
