Professional Marshall Bass Rig For Sale (sadly)

My prized Marshall Bass rig is sadly up for sale, as following recent surgery, I am no longer able to play Bass in the way I used to be able to.  The rig has been serviced by Marshall, so is in great order and also comes with a spare set of output valves from them (worth ~£280) and also genuine Marshall covers for the amplifier and cabinet. The details of the Rig are as below:


The Marshall VBA400 Bass Guitar Tube Amplifier Head features a staggering eight 6550 power valves, plus three ECC83 and one ECC82 pre-amp valves.


The Marshall VBA 400 Bass Guitar Tube Amplifier Head delivers pure valve power due to the twelve valves it houses. 3-Band passive EQ network for Bass, Middle, and Treble has been designed to offer you all the tonal adjustment you need.


The Marshall VBA400 Bass Guitar Tube Amplifier Head main features include:


  • Active/Passive Inputs
  • Input Gain Control
  • 3 Band Rotary EQ
  • 3 Position Mid Contour
  • Deep Switch
  • Bright Switch
  • Master Volume
  • Tuner Output
  • Tuner Mute Switch
  • DI Pre/Post Switch
  • DI XLR with Earth Lift Switch
  • FX Send & Return
  • Fan Speed Selector
  • Impedance Select Switch ( 2 or 4 Ohm)
  • 8 x 6550 Output Valves
  • 3 X ECC83 & 1 X ECC82 Pre-Amp Valves
  • Dimensions: 670 x 275 x 325
  • Weight: 36kg


Cost New from 'Sounds Live' (where I bought it) is now ~ £1462 (including Marshall Speaker cables).




MARSHALL VBC-412 Bass Cabinet

Marshall VBC-412 Bass cabinet, 400 Watts, 4x 12" Speaker (each 16 Ohms), 4 Ohm total Impedance, handle bars at the sides, incl. 4 removable Casters, removable Front, Jack Connection, Weight: 49 kg, Dimensions WHD: 825 x 764 x 395 mm.


Cost New from Sounds Live (where I bought it) is ~ £639




Custom MAJ Electronic 2 x 15 Bass Cabinet

I had this additional Bass cabinet made to mirror the profile of the VBC 412, but with two 15 inch Celestion Truvox 1525 drive units rated at 250W each (500W total). Weight: ~40 kg, Dimensions ~ WHD: 825 x 764 x 395 mm.


Cost New from where I bought it was ~ £400


Korg DTR 1000 Rack Tuner

Korg DTR-1000 - The Chromatic Rack Mount Tuner for Precise Instrument Tuning!


This rack mount tuner is packed with all the essential features needed to deliver a pro-guitar performance. On stage it is perfect for its accuracy and visibility. It also has a very cool look that even the fans often notice.




  • Chromatic Tuner


  • Automatically detects note name and accurate pitch


  • Two types of display: "cent" or "strobe"


  • Seven-semitone flat tuning support


  • Adjustable Calibration of 438-455 Hz


  • Dimensions: 18.94"(W) x 4.45"(D) x 1.81"(H)


  • Weight: 3.09 lbs

Cost New from where I bought it was ~ £180 (including the ‘Gator’ rack in which it sits).


In summary, it took me a while to get this rig together and the total cost (if you have been adding up…!) to do this in 2011/12 is now ~ £2680 (excluding the spare output valves/covers/leads which are included in the deal!).  It has never been gigged and is in very good condition (minor 'nick' on the top of the VBC412 tolex which I will get repaired).  As stated I have not been able to pick up a bass for over 8 months now and so I am parting company so that someone else can enjoy the Rig!


Obviously This not something you can post and it seems that to send it all via Royal Mail Parcel force any great distance will cost over £150!  So I suggest pick up in person (after playing it) or organise your own more cost effective courier service to collect it all at your cost.  If reasonably local (~50 miles), I could deliver at your cost for petrol (we are near Whitehaven, West Cumbria).


If successful, either a bankers draft, cash at collection or via PayPal please


Good luck with bidding and thank you for looking!
