Hey guys, my name is Matthew, I'm from New York. I'm a little familiar with Kustom Bass Cabs in the sense that I've used them for a year or 2 now. But I know little to nothing to figure out when my cab was made. I've been using my friends Kustom 3x15 bass (?) cab for a year and we couldn't even figure out if it was a bass cab. It has 2 15 inch speakers and 1 15 inch siren, not sure if that's enough to classify it as a bass cab. It doesn't have the 2 sound holes like most Kustom Bass cabs have. I have 1 picture of it so if interested I could sent it.

I just recently bought a vintage Kustom Tuck and Roll 3x15 bass cab off FaceBook for $100, has only 1 of the 3 original speakers in it. I'd like to know what it is and what year it was made. I'm picking it up tomorrow Sun Jan. 24th so I will send pictures there. Would also like to know if I got a decent deal.

Also, my preferred rig is an Ampeg Bass head through a Kustom Cab, wonder if you guys think that's sacrilegious or not haha.

Anyways, glad to be a part of the forum. Any questions about the cab let me know! As mentioned before I will be sending pictures tomorrow when I get the Cab!

Well over a year ago now while at rehearsal and using one of my basses with a 18 volt active preamp I damaged my selectone channel in one of my K250 heads when it started to produce a ton of hiss.

Just over the weekend I got to look into the issue and had to replace the 14 pin duel section IC chip to fix it.

So you folks with active preamps in your guitars and or using stomp boxes that can add to signal input levels in to the amp beware of driving these 250 and K150 heads with too much signal into them!

These amps where not made to need that hot a input signal level to drive them to full output wattage.
