Vintage Premier Twin 8R Amplifier Tremelo and Reverb
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-12-11)
Price : US $403.36
This is a rare vintage Premier Twin 8R tube amplifier, made by Multivox. It's in pretty darn good condition, although it has a few black marks on the Tolex, and a corner ding. There's a little corrosion on the control plate as well, but nothing too major. The twin eight inch speakers appear to be original, still have factory red paint on the mounting screws. Both the reverb circuit and the tremelo circuit work, this is a lovely sounding, chimey amp. Tube complement is a 6AV6 rectifier (I think), a 12AX7 preamp, a 6AQ8, and a 7591 power tube. The leather handle is in good shape, as are the four rubber feet. I don't know the year of manufacture, although I'd guess mid-sixties, as that's when reverb circuits typically began to show up. The serial number is 475157.
I've been playing my Tele through it, and it sounds great, but as with a lot of vintage electronics, it probably could use a going through, new filter capacitors, etc., so I'm selling as is.... Feel free to contact me with questions, or requests for more pictures. I will need to receive payment quickly after the auction, as I'll be out of town over the Xmas holidays. Shipping is $30.00 for the lower 48, or ask otherwise. Thanks and happy bidding!
