This is a 60's Hilgen Basso 2501 Amp. It's supposed to be a bass amp but it's much better for Harp or Guitar. It has a 15' speaker. (no speaker code) For tubes it uses a pair of 7591's, 5ar4/gz34, and a pair of 12AX7's. The amp is in very good condition and you gotta love the wild original grillcloth. The amp was built in an amp factory in New Jersey that built amps for a few other companies and there seems to be a connection between Hilgen and Ampeg. The amp has 2 channels, one says bass and the other says instrument, each with volume and tone and 2 inputs per channel. The amp really comes alive and overdrives when you patch the 2 channels together. You can't do that with most amps. My harp player in New Orleans J.D.Hill used it on a gig and was pleasently surprised, but we did have to put a mike on it. It's probably about 15-20 watts. I've got a custom built tweed pro coming so i need to let go of a few amps. Shipping will be determined at the end of the auction (actual shipping $5 for packing materials) Insurance is optional but recomended. You can go to UPS.com with the supplied approx. dimentions and weight. Good Luck!
