Scroll through the photos for a full set of internal shots.

Completely original (including Jensen speaker) except for repro leather handle, 5 caps replaced and three prong mains cable installed. (Original handle, caps and mains cable will be supplied).

CONDITION: In very good cosmetic condition with some wear to the tweed cover. The face is clean with some patches of oxidation and wear to the controls. Internally this amp is very clean and comes complete with a full set of RCA valves. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

  • 110v model.
  • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

This amp is part of a superb collection of early British valve amps that we are selling on consignment for a customer. He has been collecting amps for over 30 years and that’s his description above. It will be supplied tested and in good working order.

Note that as they are part of a large collection which has been in storage, there may be a delay in shipping if a fault is discovered in the final testing (this is not uncommon with amps that have been sat on the shelf). In the event that this happens the amp will be sent to our tech for work and we will keep you updated. If you need further information please get in touch.
