General Discussion / Spectrum II -- any love for four-knobs?
« Last post by lochry on January 09, 2018, 03:48:56 pm »
Been awol a while and thought I'd jump back in with a paean to a great Sunn amp -- the Spectrum ii (same as pre-reverb 100s).

I've owned several four-knob Sunns over the decades (check my avatar) always keeping an eye out for an "untouched" example with old glass.  Finally found a perfect 1968 -- final year for four-knobers excepting the 2000s.  Still had its original 2-prong cord.

I need a versatile amp and find the Spectrum ii can cover bass and rhythm guitar, live and on tape, without compromise.  I've tried doing this with various Fenders, Ampegs, Music Mans, Hiwatts, Vickys, etc., but the Spectrum comes out on top -- simple, flexible, easy to dial in, wonderful harmonics.

For bass, you just can't beat big glass.  As for guitar, I realize a clean signal out of a linear OT is not everyone's cup of tea, but I like it.  (I play teles and esquires and my main "effect" remains the guitar's volume knob.)  I just wish I could find a light cabinet as versatile as this amp.

Glad to be back.  Good to see the Forum active.

Well some sad news, the Enforcer amp and 4X12 cab purchased off Reverb was lost by UPS.  :x

It reached it's destination hub which by mere coincidence is in "Tualatin Oregon" where it was originally made.
UPS is just down the road where the old Sunn plant used to be.....hmm trying to find it's way back home?
The head and cab were packaged together as well. It was scheduled out for delivery (signature required) on the 19th. Nothing more from there... Of course there is a "lost package" report and I should be covered by insurance in the event it doesn't show up but the question lays WHO in the &#%@ HAS IT!

I may have scored a 1-15" cab which is perfect, I'll know more later today I believe.

I tried to purchase the Sunn style tolex from Angela last winter and they told me it was sold out.
Would be amazing if they have it back in stock.

I'd say that you're somewhat in luck, Tomm. The Sonaro was originally a combo amp with a single 15" JBL speaker. Later, it was split into a head/cabinet unit, still with a single 15", so a refrigerator-sized cabinet wouldn't be as authentic. On the down side, original cabinets are pretty hard to find. But if you're thinking of going custom built, that's not an issue.

I think that the original Sonaro cabinet (after they separated them) was 29x24x11.5. Later, in the early 70s, Sunn came out with the 115S, which I think was 24x24x15. The 2x12" Solarus cabinet is also 29x24x11.5, and is open back. Suitable for guitar, not so much for bass.

The Catalog thread lists dimensions for most factory Sunn cabs;


Never actually seem Angela tolex, but I don't think there is an exact match out there. Search "tolex" on this site and you can read the myriad discussions about tolex (and Grill cloth), it's a popular discussion with lots of helpful info.
