ADA Tritube 75 and Tritube 150 amps
« on: Time Format »

A friend has one of each of these never seen by me before ADA Tritube 75 and Tritube 150 amps! Are they super collectable because they  are so rare?  I can't even find a demo of either amp on youtube...

What should I pay for each?  What are they worth?

Does anyone hear own one or have a video of either amp.

They are rarer than hen's teeth - especially if they're in good shape. Oh, and I want you to sell one to me after you buy them both  :poop:

They are in very good shape except for a little tolex tears at the bottom of the 75 unit....Any idea on what would be a fair price for the Tritube 75?

I honestly have no idea what they're worth, but I sure would LOVE to have a Tritube 75 - who cares about the tolex? 

The attached pic is literally the only one I could find. Hey DBjacobson2112, could you snap a few pics of yours for posterity?


BTW: There's a QuadTube on Ebay right now, with the Rack Holster, Footswitch, and manual. I snagged all the pics of that one to post in here later.  :thumb-up:

Also, I will take many pix fo everyone for posterity....  The weirdist thing about these amps [to me] is that I have never heard of them at all!   I have owned various MP-1s over the years And I have all the Guitar Player, Guitar World, GFTPM magazines going back to 1990 and don't ever recall even an Advertisement for them.

I just picked up a mint Tritube 75m off Craigslist earlier today. It however didn't come with anything aside from a printed copy of the manual. I'm trying to track down the rack holster that goes with it. I will say that its as if my mp-2, mt200 and Ada 1x12 cab where mashed into 1. Well worth the $550 I plunked down for it!!

What is the need for a rack holder?and did yours come with a midi controller?  I just bought my Tritube 75 last week and I am waiting for an ADA MPC controller I bought off ebay - which should be here tomorrow....

I guess its more about wanting to get the accessories that originally shipped with it. Although if I did have it I'd pick up another identical effects unit to the one I have in my rack. Then I could duplicate my rig 100% in a smaller footprint when needed.

I own an ADA Tritube 75 and then just rec'd an ADA MPC  Midi Controller off eBay which I rec'd today.   I connected the MPC to the amp using a 7 pin phantom power midi cable.  Unfortunately, the  display isn't working correctly.  It says ADA then starts blinking but when I step on various number switches it never settles on a number

I made a short 1 minute video of what the display does when powered up.

http://youtu.be/OH55M1tYuuk

Before I send the MPC back to the eBay seller, any idea what is causing this issue - is it a power  problem from the Amp or the 7 pin midi cable [which has worked fine in the past] or an MPC issue?

I have not tried a power supply yet....  Can a typical Boss PSA 120S 9 volt adapter work or does the MPC have some sort of opposite polarity on it's 9 volt adapters?   [Always aware of these small details that can toast transistors etc]

Thanks for your help,
Doug

I have a quadtube that originally included the 2x12 speakers but was hacked up into a head by the time I purchased it.  The Quadtube straight up IS an MP-2 and that's how I use it now because some internal fuse (must be the power amp section) keeps blowing so I run the 1/4 outputs into my B200s into my GFlex 2x12.  This setup gives me a great live tone but you can get that exact tone from an MP-2 and actually a better tone if you run an MP-2 into a tube power amp like a Marshall Dual Monobloc.    Here's a live video of me playing a 7-string -> EMG 707 -> Quadtube as a head before the internal fuse kept blowing up -> GFlex 2x12.  The video doesn't do its tone justice as the volume could've been louder and the acoustics of the club could've been better but it definitely sounds mean.
