Amplifier Type: Stack Model:


OK, first sorry about the picture quality. These were shot in my cramped climate controlled storage area. Now, here is a very rare celebrity owned rig that should make someone happy. This is a Rickenbacker Transonic amplifier head and cabinet that was obtained from Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick about 10 years ago. It was picked up from their storage facility in Rockford in trade for some basses. This was used by Tom for live shows throughout the 1990's; if you saw Cheap Trick live then, you've seen this rig. The stage placement sticker is still on the back of amp as shown, right next to Bun E.'s kit. The head was sent to Bob Rissi, the designer of the Transonic, for servicing a couple of years ago. Bob is a great person, and did a great electronic restoration as well as made and stained, by hand, some missing center wood pieces for the head skids. This amp sounds GREAT (think Led Zeppelin II) for bass or guitar. I though solid state Vox amps were good, but I like these better. The Model 200 head has all the effects working- Fuzz, MRB, etc. and can get rather loud if desired. The cab has 2x15 EV's per Tom's preference. Shipping is possible, but if you can come and get it, that is fine too. If you are short on cash, a healthy deposit can hold it for you; advise where you are at and I will try to work with you if you are seriously interested.  See my other auction for tube amps, Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Marshall items.
