Hello. I don't know proper forum mechanics but I need some advice with an amp setup my dad had. It is a Kasino 800 mixer. There is an amp, a pair of tall speakers and some sort of unit that runs a tape. A pedal for that somewhere.? It doesn't have the roll and tuck I saw in one picture but a plane textured cover on all. My question is whether it is worth anything. Seems it should go to someone who cares about it. REALLY heavy pieces. My son used some of it DJing in high school but no one ever knew anything about using it.
Dad was really proud of it but he died twenty years ago. Any help is appreciated.

You have the Kasino 800 non powered mixer. 8 inputs and Kasino offered it in two versions, Hiz inputs or loz inputs. The power amps were built in the back of each column speaker. The other unit with the tape, I would guess to be a tape echo unit. Maybe a Maestro or Fender tape echo. As far as worth, it's hard to determine, since everything is old school. I guess you could set a price and place it on CL or Ebay. Photo's would be nice or a better description to know exactly what you have.

Thanks. I am pretty sure the newer lighter electronic amp versions are more sought out but I didn't want to just let it fade away if it was a good setup as vintage. Doesn't seem to excite anyone so I guess I'll pack it away again.
Thank you for your help. I was really in the dark about it.

If we had a better description of exactly what you have it would be easier to try and put a value on it. The 800 mixer was really ahead of it's time when it came out. One issue, is it's size, and not only your system but any system that is large, shipping can be costly. I have owned both the 800 and the 1200 mixers in the past, a bit noisy, but still a cool piece of history. Another thing people would want to know, is everything working as it should. The tape echo should be an easy sale and some of the vintage tape echos bring good money.

Good morning Pleat. Shipping must be unimaginable! I really have wrestled with what to do with this equipment in the past years. It was my dads so I would like it to go to someone that needs or appreciates it. In a perfect world right? Reality is that it's old heavy stuff. I will have to get enough cords together to test it all and wanted to know if there is an interest out there before I spend the bucks on that. I don't know input types but it uses the long silver stab-in type plug. The speaker's built in amp was a surprise. There is a box (head?) besides the mixer that I assumed was the amp. My son is 37 now and it's been a long time since I tried all this stuff when he was in school. The box with the tape has never been used by me. I'll make some time to get it all out, test and take some pics. He bought it used some time in the 70's and put it in a massive wall cabinet he built. All the individual pieces have original covers and the speakers have vinyl slip on covers in good shape. Your help has been invaluable. Thanks.

If you click on the literature tab on this site, click on Kasino and that will bring you to the catalog pages. Click on Kasino PA and you should spot a photo of your system, that would speed things up on identifying your pa.

This is embarrassing but I can't find any kind of "Literature" tab.

In a band that I played in for some two years we had that set up with the 2 2-15 and horn cabinets, what a well come change it was from the K200b-5 head with the two 4-12" cabs.
Its was great to be able to mic the drums with a kick, snare and over head mic!

I guess I should have gotten it all out first! The mixer is a Kasino 800 HI. Looks like the Lounge model. The amp or head or whatever, turns out to be a Sunn, 5 input and some kind of built in reverb because it says it is equipped with a lock and must be unlocked. Red label on back. The two speakers are also Sunn and marked as "4-12". The Sunn amp is 5 inputs, individual bass and treble per channel, master volume and master reverb. KK41594 is a sticker on the back.? Also a polarity switch.
So I guess it's not a full Kasino set.
