A rare British-made, early 60s Elpico valve-rectified amp head in good condition and excellent working order. It’s just been given a full overhaul/service and sounds superb.
It has the full complement of original Mullard valves: 2 x EL84, 3 x ECC83, 1 x EZ81 – all tested and working. The output transformer had failed and our valve tech didn’t consider it worth rewinding – it now sports a new Fender OT which has made it come alive. The buyer of last one of these we sold with this mod was blown away.
The knobs are replacements and it has dings and signs of age (some tape residue) as you would expect, but overall it’s looking pretty good for its age. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.
It’s a real tone monster and a sleeper – if it had a Marshall or Vox badge it’d be worth a small fortune.
Elpico amps were used by Paul McCartney and Dave Davies in the Beatles’ and Kinks’ early days.
It is a UK 240v model and will require a step-up transformer for use in Canada and USA. The UK plug will be removed before shipping to the EU/Australia unless otherwise requested.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
