Price : US $162.50
i dont know anything about this amp really, but i can tell you it sounds fantastic. ive had many small vintage american made amps, and this one holds its own against any valco, supro, magnatone, or even a champ. sonically there are no issues, it has a rich creamy tone and and totally sweet overdrive when its cranked. very little noise or hum, no crackle, no issues at all. a 3 pronged plug has been added. the cord you see unattached in the photos is from the speaker. It was detached to hook up to a variac in order to bring it up to power slowly after sitting for many years. i left it as it was because i didnt want to play through the speaker, which i think is original. the speaker works fine though.
tubes are 5y3gt, (2) 6v6gt, 6sn7gt, and a 6st7.
cosmetically there is plenty of...uh..vintage charm. theres a fair amount of oxidation on the rear metal control panel, theres scratches and minor rips in the tolex, and theres a good hole in the tweed covering the speaker. theres also stickers saying 'nick r' which I left, although I am not mr. R, whoever that may be.
3 inputs, controls for microphone, master gain, and tone. i found the juiciest settings to be all 3 cranked. the thing just barks like that.
i dont know the wattage, but it gets about as loud as a champ.
this is an EXCELLENT little amp for recording as is, or for restoring with a glue gun and some fresh covering. check my feedback to see other amps and vintage gear Ive had, and notice that I dont BS.
continental US only. no international.
thanks for looking
