    Rare Blade Avanti VTH100 Tube amp

    I went to a local thrift shop and found one of these Blade Avanti VTH100 Tube amp. It's in near mint shape. Works perfect, few blemishes ontop, nothing big.
    One of the hardest amps to come by.
    There was only 25 of them ever made before the company went bankrupt.
    Made in Canada. Retail was $3000 Back in 1993.


    Blade Avanti VTH100

    This one sold last year for $1026 ! :o

    Re: Rare Blade Avanti VTH100 Tube amp

    I Didnt even know what the amp was. I walked into the swap shop and was looking for car amps.
    they had 2 displays full of amps, lotsa cheap low end stuff, an this amp along with a Phoenix Gold MS50.
    Went home the same night and did research on it. To my astonishment, I read that only 25 were made then the company went bankrupt.
    I also found out how much these are selling for now ($1000+)
    The company Blade Technology corporation was actually located and manufactued these minutes from where I bought this amp.
    I wonder how may others there are floating around in these parts ! lol
    Word has it that these amps were built and sold to pay off alot of employees severance, thats why they cost $3000 back in the day.

    haha. it's so rare the swap shop/ thrift shop couldnt compare it to anything on the net, so I guess they guessed on the price.

    I think they made 2 versions of this amp as the BLADE LOGO was replaced by Avanti or vice versa.
