I recently traded in my fender hot rod deville for a rickenbacker tr100. I have gotta say, I'm loving this amp. though, i know next to nothing about the amp, so i was wondering if you guys could enlighten me a bit about this amp.

here's some pictures

nosignal...Welcome to the Forums. Rickenbacker manufactured a couple of TR100 "fully self-contained" amplifiers. The TR100G with 4 12" speakers and the TR100GT with two 12" extra heavy duty speakers and four deluxe, detachable casters. The TR100GT pictured in the Rickenbacker catalog has a different speaker grill than the one you have, plus there is a Rickenbacker logo on the grill.

The TR100GT has the same electronics has the TR100G which is decribed in the catalog as "the ultimate heavy duty stage amplifier."

I'm pleased to say that my TR100GT sounds fantastic now, after a thorough cleaning by the good folks at Aviator Audio in Edmonds, WA. Everything is clear in the sound, and apparently the original equipment is all there. I hope that others are lucky enough to find an amp like this and have a shop in the area that can rescue the sound.

I have finally found this amplifier for sale on a website. And I really want to buy it, but I have no idea what it is worth. Before I pay to much, does anyone here knows what the value is of the TR-100GT?

I just made a deal for one of these and I'm picking it up tomorrow. I'm super excited.

However, I have a question about the effects loop and how it's labeled.

Specifically here:

Is the Preamp #1 In/Out and Preamp #2 In/Out essentially a stereo return?

Or, is the only way to run this amp in stereo to plug in through the stereo inputs?

I ask because I plan to use this amp with a different preamp and it would be cool to have a stereo fx loop, but I'm not sure if this is capable of that.

Thanks!

I'm real late in answering this and I'm hoping you got your hands on it already, but the going rate for this amp seems to be $130 to $200US.
