SOLD! Sugden IA-4 - silver, mint, original remote and packaging £2950

I have a cunning plan; a secret cunning plan; a secret, cunning and probably implausible plan. This plan will only come to fruition if I sell my lovely looking and sounding Sugden IA-4 to a genuine (and patient - see below) buyer. Which is where you, dear discerning wammer, come in.

I auditioned the IA-4 against the A21 Sig and ANV-50 and it was my take-home amp. The A21 is gorgeous but a back-to-back audition shows that its strengths come with limitations. The ANV-50 just didn't do it for me; I wanted to love it but couldn't. The IA-4 does everything and does so across a wide range of musical genres. 33w a side of pure Class A loveliness. Compared with the outrageous 200w a side Audia Flight I owned, this does 99% of the musical magic without the electricity bills and the eco-guilt.

At £2950, I'm offering a saving of £2295 vs the current retail price of £5,245. In titanium silver, it is absolutely mint and comes with original box, original remote etc. I'm already taking a hit so have little room to manouevre, but recognise the cultural norm is to try a Life of Brian style haggle; I'll humour you if you humour me.

There are, er, some "minor practicalities" to consider. Lockdown. The amp is in Kendal and I'm in Leicestershire. Under current restrictions, this makes both shipping and collection (unless you happen to live locally and are jogging by) impossible in the short term. So my IA-4 is for sale and you can buy it but you can't have it yet. What can possibly go wrong?

PM me if you are interested.

Thanks Graham. Already garnering genuine interest (via PM)  from the wammer community, which is reassuring.

This is simply unfair. There is no indication what the "cunning plan" is. We can keep a secret so spill the beeenz :D

That is because the plan is not just cunning, it is secret and cunning.

You are obviously not familiar with the language of cunning, or as we Cunning Society members call it, CunningLingua.

It is also a lovely sounding piece of kit... it's only because I fancy having a poke around separate pre/power that it's for sale.

Will dig out the odd review when I can. I was searching for something else when I found this suitably positive review!

could you not sort a wamtaxi to get the amp to you.  I can easily get to Kendal with work then I can try the amp in my kit at home9_9

Good creative thinking ;)... though we might need a relay of several Wam taxis with handovers at say 20 mile intervals. Could take an age if everyone hangs onto it for a week "just to check it is still working before I hand it on"...

I need to copy and past this into my advert!

Ooh, I do love a trier! Nice one @toms wait
