We are Eclectic Sounds / aka: eclsounds – a store front in Portland, Or. We are open 7 days a week from 11 – 5 PST (by appointment)
Used in Fair/Good condition, with some larger tolex tears and several dings and scratches. The staggered formation makes this dimensions of this cab a bit smaller than a normal 4×12″ cabinet. The speakers are all original. We tested it in our shop and it sounds great!
Sunn amplifiers are iconic, especially in early rock and roll and stoner/doom metal. Their logo and red knobs make them easily identifiable, and their sound is no different. Sunn amps were able to catch the attention of Pete Townsend, Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys, the Melvins, and more.
Hendrix experimented with a lot of different gear throughout his career, but the Jimi Hendrix Experience signed an endorsement with Sunn in 1968. The band exclusively used Sunn gear in live performances for a brief period of time, but Jimi eventually got restless and continued experimenting with gear.
In 1967, Pete Townsend and the Who started using Sunn amps and PA equipment after encountering low quality gear in the US. The gear was much better for large concerts than their other gear, and the Sunn amps could handle more abuse than most other amps (a necessity for the Who).
While Sunn amps may not be the first thing people think of when they hear “classic rock guitar amps,” they have earned their place in rock history. Used by legends like Jimi Hendrix and Buzz Osborne, Sunn amps have developed a cult following for their unique sound and image. Though Fender bought the company in 1985, they were never able to recreate what made Sunn amps special and retired the brand in 2002. Thankfully, many musicians still use Sunn amps, and they’re still rumbling on stages across the country.
( Due to people taking advantage of eBay / Reverb return policies; wanting to “try out and/or pilfer parts” we can no longer take returns on used gear unless it arrives damaged. Sorry for this inconvenience. We test and guarantee all gear to be 100% working unless stated otherwise )
Come play this gear in our shop!
