It says KBA100 but I cannot find a bass amp like this one anywhere. Trying to track down a schematic.
Does anyone have any information about when it was made or any identifying info?
It has an XLR input in the front and a single 15" (?) speaker.
This is my first time posting on a message board so please forgive me if I'm doin' it wrong!
It won't let me post photos for some reason.
Thank you!

Hi!
That model Kustom is not what this site concider's a vintage model so you will not find a schematic for it here.
You need to contact the current owners of the Kustom name / brand to get your info.

That being said I may have a schematic and I will look for you tonight but once contacting Kustom they have always emailed me one same day.


What's the issue with the amp?

Yes, photos can not be loaded here.

Thank you for your help! Okay I will try contacting Kustom, I'm just confused because I see KBA100 models and they don't look anything like the amp I have.

Also I'm not sure what this site considers vintage but it definitely looks to be from the 70s and it has the silver sparkle tuck and roll cab of that era. Could it be a Frankenstein job? I sure wish I could post a photo because I cannot find a single amp like it anywhere.

Thanks for the pictures you sent me, and from looking at them I can tell that your KBA 100 is in its original cabinet that has been covered with that silver Tuck & Roll.

Thanks so much for looking at the pictures and sorry again if my message board etiquette is inept at best. Can you tell what year or era it's from? I just cannot find another example of a KBA 100 model with an XLR input on the front plate with a ground lift switch for the life of me....

I my be able to help more if you could slide the amp out of the cabinet and take some inside shots to send to me.
