Was there ever a 1970 catalog, or just the two small brochures (early/late 1970) described above?

I have 2 Sonaro cabinets and a first generation Coliseum Bass Amp and trying to obtain a catalog that may contain both. Seems I may have to get a '69 catalog for the Sonaro cabs and a '72 catalog for the Coliseum Bass amp.

Anyone have a lead to where I can obtain copies of either catalogs or brochures?

Hopefully at some point all of the "gap" catalogs will surface to complete this thread; if they exist.  :wink:

Sunn literature pops up on eBay from time to time, but it never seems to be the "mystery" years.
Good Luck, and be sure to share the info here if you score some of the missing ones!

Recently, a 1975 catalog was posted on ebay. Two last second bidders collided at the end of the auction. One bid $99.00 and the other won at the incremental bid of $100. The bids had been hovering in the $10 to $15 range IIRC. Ouch!

Wow! It wasn't too many years ago that you could have bought a nice vintage Sunn AMP for $100!

I watched that '75, too, but wasn't around when the auction ended.

Regarding the earlier question on 1970, I believe there were just those two small brochures.
Sunn since June 1971!
1971 Sorado, 2000S, Coliseum Bass, Coliseum Lead
1970 200S; 1974 Coliseum 880

Just a bump for the long time members of the forum. EdBass recently emailed me a pdf of the early 1970 flyer. I added it to the first post in the thread. If anybody has anthing that should be added here, send me a message on the forum here and I will incorporate the info.
