when bigger was better

Ummm, no. It has no master volume (which is a deal breaker for me), and I got fed up with carting around 4 X 12 cabs, back in the late 80s. BUT, I'm sure that some stoner rock player will be all over it. Stoner rockers love Sunn amps.

Same amps in both pictures. Leslie West bought all the Sunn gear from Hendrix when he changed sponsors after a tour.

Built by The Kingsman's bassist, Norm Sundholm!

JD from SOT had one, or something like that...it was huge.

I remember seeing Geordie from Killing Joke playing his ES-295 through one of these at the East Side Club in Philly. Monster amp!

And Felix developed hearing problems. Imagine standing in front of that! I think that a Mountain concert was the loudest concert I ever went to. They were great.

John Entwhistle also... Noel Redding, and Felix playing a kool Gibson EB 1

2000S a bass amp so of course no master but I don't remember any master volume until

1973 or so w/ Fender. Of of course In World Of BirdMan master volume should be illegal.

Sunn was the backline of Woodstock

They are the coolest looking amps.

I have an old Sunn 4x12 cab in my basement that use to belong to the guitarist from the Darkest Hour. It’s for sale, if you want to get it out of my basement.....
