VHT Special 6 Head
1 Attachment(s) GTR/AMP VHT Special 6 Head

This has to be probably the best buy I've ever made, next to the 76' Explorer I picked up for $200 @ GC in 1980 - Totally pure PTP tube amp, BIG iron for 6 watts plus a cab. Out-of-the-box, great usable tones, but plug in a nice pedal (or two) and watch-out! And with a 20% off coupon, only $168.

Tyler Acoustics D2x Monitors
MON Tyler Acoustics D2x Monitors

Excellent full-range monitor suitable for mastering, at a price that's really hard to beat for this level of audio quality. Needs to be positioned perfectly for proper imaging and needs 200 hours to get broken in, but once they are, the D2x presents one of the best views into music I've ever heard.

The Fender Stage series was short lived before Fender moved forward with using DSP in the newer models. Afterward the series, seems to have been replaced by the Fender Frontman 212. There were 3 amps released under the Stage series, the 100/100H/160. Ill just be covering the Stage 160.
