Sunn Concert Lead : Sunn1000S's user review
« DEFINITELY MOSFET SOLID STATE, BAD ASS »
My Concert Lead was a Silver Face. I KEPT the foot switch, and this amp is a Silver Face. Some folks think they're better, I do. For a 1972 MOSFET SOLID STATE CASCADING CHIP AMP IT HAS a killer Distortion sound to it I was truly astonished. IT SOUNDS BETTER THAN MODERN AMPS. I SOLD RON BUSH IN ST.LOUIS, MO. ALL MY SOLID STATE SUNN AMPS ( EXCEPT THE SUNN COLISEUM LEAD.320 WATTS RMS INTO 2 OHMS.I KEPT 2 BRAND NEW LOOKING AND PERFORMING. 1 1970 SUNN 1000S(KT88S) ON 1.5 YOU CAN'THEAR THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU, 1 1972 OR 1973 350L WITH 6550S( HAS SOLID STATE RECTIFIERS, WILL CHANGE TO 2 GZ34 LIKE 1000S. THE PUNCH OUT HOLES ARE THERE. 350 L IS .44 MAGNUM THE 1000S IS A CANNON..THEY ARE THE EXACT SAME SIZE AND HAVE THE GIGANTIC ORIGINAL NEW LOOKING TRANSFORMERS IN THEM. 1000S AND 350L LOOK LIKE THEY CAM OFF THE LINE 2 WEEKS AGO. I HAVE A SUNN 19OL THAT LOOKS BRAND NEW ALSO, IT HAS TWO AUDIO CLASSIC EL34S MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA IN THE TESLA FACTORY. TUBES ARE VINTAGE.SOU D GTEAT.ALMOST 50 YEARS OLD FROM LOOKS. 190L CAME OUT IN 1971.I USE AYEAR 2000 NOS Fender Sunn T50C. Have the NOS 120 4 GT SVETLANA 6L6, MODEL T. I HAVE 2. 4 × 12 STACKS. ONE IS 50 YEARS OLD THE OTHER IS SUNN YEAR 2000. HAVE A PAIR OF RECTANGULAR SUNN SPEAKERS WITH 4 10S EACH FOR THE 190L.I KEEP MOST OF MY AMPS AND CABS AT A BUDDIES HOUSE IN A LOW CRIME NEIGHBORHOOD. THAT SILVER FACE CONCERT LEAD (1972) was one of my favorite amps. I really miss it. That one just has a kick ass sound too it.Concert Leads are definitely solid state and I heard nothing but compliments on it when it was cranked.
