Postby Dusted53 on Tue Mar 22, 2011 2:48 am

Ryder 400B "The Destructor" amplifier. Product of Allied Industries, New Orleans.
Hello, new user here. I've seen this amp and I've been playing bass for over 30yrs and never saw one like it before.
Just wondering if anyone here has. I'm thinking of just buying it since it looks cool if anything and wondered what I
should be asking for it, before I make a move on it. Thanks in advance for any advice. I'm going to check it out
in the next couple of days, so I'll get back with better pictures and more info. Thanks again.....Bob

The guy who owns it, bought it when he was buying a guitar in a man's garage. The man knew nothing about it except it was in his garage when he bought a house. New owner says it won't turn on because switch just turns. All other knobs work as far an clicking on -off anyway.
I just had a parting look at it an did a couple phone pics on my way out.

Now it's a mystery amp that the new guy thinks he can make a mint on it and has it going to the highest offer, don't know where he's at with ofers right now, so the question is what I should go for. I think it has a high cool factor if anything and most anything can be repaired. I just would like a little history before I dive into "The Destructor"!!
