Crate Blue Voodoo 300w (ALL TUBE) $900

Crate Blue Voodoo 300 watt head - $900 - OBO
 
I've used this amp for about 3 years now and love it, but I'm trying to change my sound up with a different amp so I'm going to sell the BV300H. I bought it for $1,500 back then and put about $600 more in upgrades over the last couple of years. This thing is loud! It has a total of 16 tubes. 6- 6550's, 8-12AX7's and 2-12AU7's. It has three channels: 1 being clean with a very high head room with lots of bass response. 2 is more of a lighter distortion similar to that of Marshall's, but can also be adjusted to produce a Fuzz distortion as well. 3 is a modern gain channel with a ton of tight distortion. It has 4 (1/4in.) output jacks as well as 2 Neutrik jacks (for plugging into bass cabs). It also has F/X send and return and a slave out for Direct-In recording as well. Crate has discontinued these amps and this is the only known 300w tube guitar head ever produced(That I'm aware of) and they are not easy to find anymore.
 
I've recently replaced all six of the power tubes with a matching sextet of Gold series GT-6550-C's with the highest overall power rating of 10. I've also replaced both input and output transformers.  
 
I would put the condition of the Tolex as in very good with only a few minor dings in it. There are also three of the metal knobs missing. That only costs maybe $2 a piece to replace but I never found it to be a problem.  
 
If anyone in the area wants to check the amp out physically than just send me an e-mail and we'll set something up.
 
P.S.- I also have a 4-12 cab with Celestion 100 watt speakers in it but there isn't any Tolex on it. I was planning on re-Tolexing it but I never got around to it. But I'm interested in selling it with the cab for $250.

Dude, I cannot imagine when anyone would ever need a 300 watt guitar amp.

Yeah, I guess. I've played gigs with it it always sounded great. I just wanted to get a smaller rig.

Well, dang it. I prefer volume with leg-room and rough tube tones.
