*We will be donating 50% of the hire fee from this cabinet to Support Act, an Australian charity that helps artists and music workers who are facing hardship due to illness, injury or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music. *
This Ampeg fridge was originally owned and used by Dean Turner, co-founder and bassist of Magic Dirt, who passed away in August 2009 after a long and courageous battle with an extremely rare form of soft tissue cancer called DFSP. Dean was deeply passionate and devoted to music, selflessly championing and supporting young bands and inspiring an endless list of musicians. This amazing piece of Australian rock history appeared on many of Magic Dirt's studio albums and was the live show workhorse on countless national tours and festivals. In addition to its solidness, reliability and beautiful rich tone, this classic SVT 810 is THE high-performance bass speaker cabinet and delivers all the power and thunder you need. Cosmetic wear and tear from all the years on the road (as shown in image) - speakers have just been re-coned at Found Sound. Comes with a custom-made road case, perfect for hitting the road.
Located at Three Phase Rehearsal Studios in Brunswick, for an easy flat road and late access! Rate for rehearsal hire is $25 p/session.
(Weekly hire also available)
