This is a great amp... I have the identical amp which has been my go-to amp since the early 80's. Someone please buy this before I find myself in the poor house!

For me it is the Zum D10 hybrid that I am currently playing. At times I wish it had another knee level but for the moment it just does not get any better.

I have a Music Man 50 watt with a 12 inch JBL that works well for PSG. A guess is that weight would be in the 30 pound range.
