Never thought I'd sell either of these, but life obligations take precedence over music at the moment.

Gower Killer Kali++ Marshall:

The standard KK++ mod is included along with the following extra options: Thump, Glass, Mid-Switch, and a rotary switch for ohm selection. It's a 1977 1959 that Dan modded in early 2016. It's my favorite amp I've ever owned. I prefer it through V30s, but Greenbacks, Creambacks, etc. work too. The amp does everything Marshall, with some of Dan's flavor added on. I could type endlessly about this amp as it's been my main amp for 2.5 years, but I'll just say it's awesome and I'm really really going to miss it. As soon as I can, I'll have Dan do another KK++ for me. I have a PDF version of the user guide provided by Dan, which I will provide via email to the buyer. A well-reputed local tech gave it a servicing earlier this year.

$2,100 shipped

Ceriatone King Kong 100 (modded):

Another awesome amp. I tried finding a CCV for years and couldn't make it work. This isn't exactly the same, but it's close and it has its own thing going on too. Sounds killer through my 70th anniv. H30 cab, but this is another head that's just going to sound good no matter what it's through. Original footswitch will be included with the amp. Excellent condition, this is a newer King Kong made within the last few years.

The preamp has been modded to more closely match a CCV, and a Metro FX loop has replaced the stock Ceriatone one.

SOLD

General notes:
Both amps power tubes are on the newer side, lots of life left. The preamp tubes are a mix of NOS and current production tubes.
I will accept Bitcoin as payment, maybe other cryptocurrencies.
Really not into international shipping unless you pay a decent bit extra, I've had two experiences where I got burned unexpectedly for international sales.
Amps will be packed and shipped via FedEx

I believe it was Nick (dawnofdreams on here). Though if someone knows for sure they can chime in and clarify. This amp has been passed around RT a bit. :lol: :LOL: Genuinely wish I wasn't selling it though.

And I should add if my circumstances change, I will pull either or both of these amps from the market.

I think zuel69 might still have mooncobra's old Rock Monster for sale. I would have bought it if I didn't already own a Fortin Gainmonster.

I also have a Gower KK++. They are very tight and aggressive!

That amp is still for sale and the Rockmonster haunts me as well... tho not sure if the Kruse mod helps or hurts the amp at all. This clip just puts a shittin' grin on my face.. that is the tone in my head.

Best of the best in hot rodded marshall world.

I sold this to a guy from North Jersey named Nick and he said he was going to mod it to be like a CCV.

The Rockmonster I had was SO GNARLY!!! That is a really great amp, fat sounding, tight, articulate, responsive, just awesome! This is the amp I had, Dan built it for himself and played it for a while:

Very short clip - couldn't really crank it with others in the house today.

LP Custom straight in, Victory V30 2x12. Highest gain settings on the front of amp (Pussy Trimmer around 75%). Master volume was incredibly low. This clip does not at all do the amp justice.

Gower sold on Reverb yesterday afternoon, but the buyer has not paid and hasn't responded to my messages. If someone here wants it, I'll do $2,200 shipped.

King Kong still available as well.

If you want both, we can chat about a deal. Deals for local NY/NJ/PA buyers too.

What happens when a “buyer” does that?
Negative feedback?

Looks like nothing. I talked to Reverb support after I noticed he didn't pay, and apparently once you "buy" something on Reverb, you have 72 hours to pay. I don't know if they changed policy, but I always assumed 24 hours.

The amp sold after some back and forth offers between me and someone Sunday late afternoon/early evening. I messaged the guy on Reverb yesterday AND called him and left a message to see what was going on and why he hadn't paid. He didn't respond to either outreach. Last night, I manually cancelled the sale and relisted the amp, and then a few hours later he finally responded and gave me some line about his credit card not working with PayPal.

Both amps still available, though one or both may be claimed tonight/tomorrow as I'm going back and forth with a few people.

Regarding the Gower: no there is no loop. It was an expensive add-on from Dan at the time and I don't use loops. If you need a loop, Metro Loops are $75 and can be installed easily.
