Price : US $536.00
1966 Champ Vibro: The amp has been fully serviced, all components have been tested and are within Fender specs.
The electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with sprague atoms with the correct values. Also the can electrolytic has been replaced with a CE Manufacturing one, this is a original type replacement. The mallory chocolate drop capacitors have been replaced with orange drops with the correct values. A grounded power cord has been added to prevent electric shock and reduce amp hum.The transformers,speaker and other components are the originals. There are no scratchy pots. When all the amp dials are turned to ten with no instrument plugged in you can barely hear a hum. The tolex has no rips and is in very good condition. There are no tears on the grille. The amp is very clean inside and out, also no rust. The face plate is also in very good condition. The amp sounds very good and has really nice tone. I added tube retainers for both the 6v6gt & 5y3gt (always a good idea to keep them from vibrating). The pictures below show the condition of the amp which is very nice. There was an input jack plug added to the back of the amp sometime in it's life. The wiring which went to the speaker has been removed (see in picture). Also on the right inside cabinet there are two extra holes where the front grille mounts (See Picture).
TUBES: (All tubes tested on MU150 Se
