You missed it!


Thought by some to be the best amp of all time and very rare to find one as early as this. Serviced and in excellent condition.

Two 15 watt amps which can be run as stereo or combined as a 30 watt amp. Includes the original footswitch and is totally original with the exception of a few changed caps and vintage correct Jensen speakers that are from 1963.

CONDITION: In very good cosmetic condition for an amp of its age. The ‘tweed’ cover is showing patches of discolouration across it but there is minimal wear or damage around the edges. The faceplate is excellent with minor scuffing. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

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.
