Studiomaster VLM 60 Watt All Tube combo amp in Pasadena for $300

This seller is offering an exceptional deal on a rare 1981 Studiomaster guitar tube amp.  Studiomaster is a British mixing board company with a solid reputation since the 1970's and this was their only foray into the world of guitar amps.   It seems they were going for a Mesa Boogie type combo and the reviews from owners are very good - especially in regard to the quality and durability of the construction.  However, note that while this is a two channel amp it does use the same preamp gain for both channels so you can't do a "totally Clean A channel and a Totally dirty B channel switching setup - you would have to use some kind of a pedal in front to achieve that effect.

Heck of a lot of amp though for $300.  Earl Slick was an early endorser of these rare amps.
