Sunn Gear Finally Organized!
« on: May 12, 2011, 02:35:33 pm »
Hi, Guys,

I finally found enough time to straighten out my modeling workshop and adjacent music room.

My basses and guitars still need to get in there, and I expect to spend the 20 years or so assembling all the hookup cords.

I still have to construct the two 2000S cabinets to match the head, and wooden risers for my Twin Reverb and the two Sunn 1205 PA cabinets. Other than those pieces, I'm pretty much done.

Here ya go...

Studio - Wide


Studio - Left


Sunn Concert Controller 1


Sunn PX 2116 Mixer


Two 412SR Cabinets, Two Concert Horn Accessories, Sunn Model 1205 Cabinet, Model 6 Cabinet, Floor Monitor, Coliseum Slave


Sunn Sentura II and two 410S Cabinets, Sunn Stage Lead Combo Amp, Floor Monitor and Sound Selector


Sunn Model 1205 Cabinet, Model 6, Floor Monitor, two 412SR Cabinets, two Concert Horn Accessories and Sunn 2000S head


Sunn 2000S Head


Fender Twin Reverb, two Fender practice amps, Sunn Spectrum II, 115 Cabinet and Sunn Alpha Four Mixer


Sunn SPL 2112 Stereo Mixer, Road Case and second Coliseum Slave are behind the Fender amplifiers


Sunn Alpha Four Mixer


Sunn Concert Keyboard Amp and 215 Sorado Cabinet, Floor Monitor, Sunn 200S and 415M Cabinet, Red Label and Silver Label Concert Slaves


Marshall VS100R and 410A Cabinet. Note original (and amazing) Musonic wah-wah pedal.


I'm a movie idiot. My DVD Cabinet holds 8,400 movies - and it's almost full!


Here are some of my instruments...

1968 (no, not 1969!) first-run Dan Armstrong Bass


2010 Homebrew Fretless Custom



2008 Fender P-Bass


1974 Fender "Nastycaster" by artist David Heffernan


1974 Fender Mustang (DuPont ChromaLusion Royal Plum)


1992 Fender Stratocaster and 1969 Dan Armstrong Guitar


1980 Sunn Mustang Guitar


Ovation Celebrity 12-String


I still have to make those wooden risers and 2000S Cabinets, then I need to find some old guys who want to hang out to sing and play some good rock & roll!

Warmest regards...

Hi, CLD,

That's Conrad. He's got Tolex, grilles and corners. The rest is just grunting.

Now I need to get my hands working again.

Very Nice! Probably a better long term investment, and certainly a lot more fun than most fetishes (at least that's what I tell my wife). If Fender ever resuscitates Sunn, that MI gear should flat skyrocket in value, and even if not I don't imagine it will do anything but increase in value.

I wish my stockpile looked half that good, but I'm still hoping to come across the "real deal" in tolex. I'm very tempted to do (well... "have done") a 2000S rig in "Navy Blue Bronco" anyway. I think it would be stunning with the SF7005 grill cloth...  :-D

 :-o Excellent collection! Hey - I am working with a band that was rather popular in the late 60's/early 70's who used Sunn gear. They are doing several "reunion" gigs and I would like to try to supply Sunn equipment if they do any larger stages. Two guitars - bass and drums. Both Guitar players had 1200's with 6 - 12's in a cabinet over two 15's in a cabinet and the bass play had 2 - 2000s heads and 4 2000s cabinets. That's probably overkill right now but a couple of 1200's with 6-12's and a single 2000 with two 200s cabs would be awesome. Any idea where I might hook up with that? The Band is Bubble Puppy of "Hot Smoke and Sassafras" fame. They are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as "One hit wonders". They were recently inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame (Finally). You can text me at 512-422-8206 - Name is Jerry :-o
