SD 1200
For most, the 800 watts of our popular SD 800 head provide more than enough power. But we know that some bassists realistically need more than 1000 watts—so we created the SD 1200. Headroom is all about having more power than you normally need, and this mighty amplifier will allow any bass player in any band to hold their own, no matter how big the stage or how loud the band! The sound is exceptionally warm and clear even at full volume, providing ultra-fast response and unparalleled reproduction of the most minute details of your playing.
